ABOUT HOOPTY- Hoopty: Intoxicating 98 proof instrumental jazz funk. Simultaneously sophisticated and low down, slick and raw, tight and unhinged, Hoopty marries the depth and intrigue of jazz with the nasty simplicity of funk. Just like a funky ol’ car that someone dressed up with some chrome and bling, Hoopty takes the funk and slicks it up with some sophisticated jazz. At once equally pleasing to the mind and the booty, Hoopty delivers infectious grooves for your butt, bebop for your brain, soaring solos for your soul and funky uplift for your spirit. Hoopty will cleanse your funky chakras! Since its inception in 2012, Hoopty has been storming stages with its tightly crafted original songs and exciting live performances, many times complimented by Go Go dancers and ecstatically grooving crowds. In addition to regularly performing at premier venues and festivals, Hoopty has also been in heavy rotation on internet radio stations like Funk Republic Radio, as well as on traditional radio stations like KSJS 90.5 and KZSC 88.1. Hoopty has been variably described as “Deep Funk favorites” (Jazz Times magazine), “sophisto-funk,” and as a cross between “Frank Zappa and P-Funk.” We describe ourselves as Neo-Vintage Funk: Drawing from the past, while pushing funk forward. From the Mothership to Maceo, from the Meters to the Mahavishnu, Hoopty has drawn from the lineage of funkespians and conjured up its own uniquely kinky contribution. Hoopty provides danceable, deep grooves, singable, memorable melodies, and ripping solos, all played by musicians at the top of their craft. Musically complex and accessible at the same time, Hoopty appeals to those just wanting to shake their booty, and to those looking for far deeper music. Come down and get a taste, your funky palate will surely be satisfied!
