The Budos Band at Amoeba Hollywood

The Budos Band is a New York-based instrumental ensemble rooted in Afro-beat, soul jazz and funk music. After forming at a jam session hosted by Antibalas, the group released their self-titled debut on Daptone Records in 2005. Two years later, they followed this release up with The Budos Band II, a lengthy promotional tour, and a hiatus during which the many members contributed to other projects. In 2010, the band reunited once more for their third effort, aptly titled The Budos Band III.

2014 marked a slight shift in direction for the band, when their new album, Burnt Offering, saw the group dabbling in psychedelia and vintage soundtrack music while still staying true to their Afro-beat and funk foundations. The Budos Band will be appearing at several North America summer festivals this year, such as Sasquatch and Desert Daze.

Baritone sax player Jared Tankel, guitarist Thomas Brennick, and bassist Daniel Foder recently stopped by Amoeba Hollywood for a little record shopping. Jared gets this "What's In My Bag?" episode started with one of his biggest influences, fellow sax player Cannonball Adderley's "Live At The Club" on vinyl. Daniel follows with some classic punk via The Damned's Punk Oddities & Rare Tracks  on vinyl. Thomas gets a reccomendation from Daniel and picks up a copy of Syd Barrett's The Madcap Laughs, a definite must have for Pink Floyd fans! The men of Budos have great taste in music and we love how they love vinyl just as much as we do! From classic blues to classic rock, these guys dig for it all.
