Roots to Grooves – The Budos Band

Welcome to our weekly podcast “Roots to Grooves”.
Each episode explores the music, life and careers of musical artists from their earliest beginnings through to their most recent releases.

This week musicians Jay Purcell and Jesse Quigley discuss the career and creative approaches of American psychedelic, afrobeat rock outfit “The Budos Band“.

Boasting a line-up of 9 musicians, The Budos members originally met through various musical connections in New York City, starting as far back as the mid 90’s. Through neighborhood jams, various name changes, and a shared love for afrobeat inspired music, the group finally released their self-titled debut album in 2005, on the legendary funk and soul label Daptone Records. Since those early days the band has gone on to tour the world, release 5 more studio albums and evolved their sound to also incorporate their love for obscure underground 70’s era rock music.
