Janxta Funk! by The Pimps of Joytime is a joyous and groove heavy drive down an open stretch of highway on a sunny day with no rush to get anywhere, yet always chugging along and pushing forward. Pulling you in with the title track that lays down the philosophy of this hard hitting Brooklyn boogie band and their message of the groove. The tone is set for a taste of the dance party, throw yourself into the mix kind of show this band puts on when they hit the stage. Drawing inspiration from Afro-beat, disco, funk, hip-hop, Latin, electronic, and folk forms this release truly is a melting pot of sounds. Enjoy the synth heavy disco funk of Keep the Music Playing, or the laid back roots based slow jam Blues Wit You, either way it's a jam baby, and it's a damn funky one at that. Groove to Pimpin' Music, or chill out to Walkin' featuring the legendary Roy Ayers. There is something for everyone. A little gritty and janky, yet clean and tight, this album will rock you and make ya move your dancing feet.

Over the course of the past four years, the Pimps of Joytime have evolved into a road tested and audience approved groove machine. They have excited crowds at over 100 club dates and festivals in 2010 and this year's ongoing "All The Way Live" tour far exceeds the volume of previous years. Amazingly, their stage performance improves each night as the electricity between the band members rises to new heights. This fluidity is not something you can manufacture, it is an authentic and exciting collaboration that is the Pimps of Joytime. With the "All The Way Live" tour, The Pimps are offering their fans and music lovers alike a chance to experience the electrifying rhythms that lace the upcoming album, Janxta Funk! (June 21 - Wonderwheel Recordings).
Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, the Pimps of Joytime are paving their own unique path in the world. What do you do when there isn't a phrase to describe your sound? You coin a new one of course! Janxta Funk, as Brian J describes it "is a style that is part gangsta, part janky". Janxta Funk ranges from Latin inspired rhythms to deep funky grooves and hot dance beats. Those who have experienced a Pimps show agree that you have to see the band live to truly understand their unique combination of musical elements, including afrobeat, rock, hip-hop and electronica. The exponential growth of the band's fan base is attributed to their artful blend of musical styles framed by bandleader Brian J's classic songwriting along with the band's undeniable swagger on stage. Their live synergy consistently inspires dance parties wherever the band appears!
Brian J is a charismatic and soulful visionary, whose well-crafted songs invite the listener to enter a world of infectious dance grooves and indelible melodies. He spent his formative years in New York City, New Orleans and Los Angeles, honing his craft to become an accomplished live performer, multi-instrumentalist and producer. He is joined by the lady of rhythm and soul, Mayteana Morales. Fans lose themselves in her beats and are captivated by her distinct voice. Completing the front line is Chauncey Yearwood who adds funky flavor to every song with tasty conga grooves and his classically soulful voice. Filling out the rhythm section is super talent David Bailis on bass and synth and rotating cast of top notch drummers.
In 2005 Brian assembled this group of righteously soulful vocalists and musicians to bring to life the musical concept that would become The Pimps of Joytime. The band's diverse sound and spirited attitude is strongly influenced by the Brooklyn DJ culture and live music scene from which they emerge. The new album Janxta Funk! features collaborations with legendary artists Cyril and Art Neville of the Neville Brothers and Roy Ayers have helped vitalize the band's connection to its roots.
The Pimps of Joytime are poised to bring their audacious sound to savvy audiences around the planet. Their forthcoming album, Janxta Funk! (June 21 - Wonderwheel Recordings) is a new chapter in the book of the Funk and a testament that real funky music is alive and kicking!
