When Chris Kelly was 18 years old, he drove from New Jersey to the New Orleans Jazz Fest. Over the following weekend, he would hear his calling: Start a band that fuses the festive sounds of New Orleans with the guitar driven, blues rock he grew up on. The result is a unique mix of jamming guitar and funky horns.
San Diego’s Brain Buckit has been shakin’ rump-sides and bobbin’ noggins everywhere. Their music has been described as “super-charged, funked-up, mardi gras, booty-shakin music”. Their blend of horns and guitar encourages both boogiers and partiers to get serious about their business. This is fun Rock ‘n’ Roll through and through. Brain Buckit songs are being played on the radio and in podcasts around the world and have been placed in several award winning films. They have contributed music to many compilation discs, placing their songs on over 300,000 CDs in circulation. Beyond San Diego, they tour many states regularly where their incredible live shows continue to attract more fans. Brain Buckit bridges styles and generations and is sure to go over great in your neck of the woods.
