Mr. Breakdown

Mr. Breakdown throws dance parties. The band plays pop-funk...a unique style of funk, reggae, and soul steeped in the grooves of James Brown, Tower of Power, Bob Marley and Fela Kuti. Their tight pocket sets the groove, while catchy vocals and inventive horn arrangements give the songs their distinctive pop sound.
