The Menahan Street Band is a collaboration of ten musicians from Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings (Dave Guy, Homer Steinweiss, Fernando Velez, Bosco Mann), El Michels Affair (Leon Michels, Toby Pazner), Antibalas (Nick Movshon, Aaron Johnson) and The Budos Band (Mike Deller, Daniel Fodder), brought together by musician/producer Thomas Brenneck (Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Budos Band, Amy Winehouse).
Funk and soul continue to pour out of Brooklyn with the birth of the Menahan Street Band. They produce an irresistible brand of music that has been described as classic, yet raw groove. An astounding blend of funk, soul and afrobeat, tinged with latin and reggae sounds, within a purely instrumental guise. They are currently signed to the Dunham imprint of the label Daptone Records.
