Support 88Nine And This Artist:
The Menahan Street Band is a collaboration of musicians from Antibalas, El Michels Affair, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings and the Budos Band. The group was brought together by musician/producer Thomas Brenneck to record in the bedroom of his Menahan St. apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn, New York. With influences reaching beyond the funk/soul/afro-beat architecture of their other projects into the more ethereal realms of Curtis Mayfield and Mulatu Astatke, the Menahan Street Band creates a unique new instrumental soul sound that is as raw as it is lush.
