The Budos Band
I’ve loved the Budos Band since they graced Pop Montreal with their presence last year, and I can’t believe I’ve waited so long to share them with everyone. So what is the Budos Band exactly? Well, it’s hard to say, since the ten-piece strong ensemble defies categorization. They mix funk, soul, metal, afrojazz, and a variety of other genres, all the while managing to make their music flow seamlessly from one style to another.
This brotherhood of sorts is, as their website puts it, “instrumental afro-soul royalty” and that confidence shows through in music that is always on point and enjoyable regardless of age or musical tastes. Hailing from Staten Island, the Budos have toured all over the world, proving over and over how amazing live performances can really be. Hopefully they’ll be heading back up to Canada soon.
