Staten Island’s The Budos Band opened up the packed-to-the-gills Sharon Jones show at Celebrate Brooklyn! on Saturday night, which was good timing since their brand new record The Budos Band III arrives on store shelves today (Aug 10). Here’s a little bit of press blurbage on the new album:
Staten Island’s finest Afro-Soul crew The Budos Band released their third album, The Budos Band III, today, via their longtime Brooklyn home Daptone Records. The Budos Band III is also streaming in its entirety all week on AOL’s Spinner.com.
Masters of the groove, watch how the brazen sound came together for the making of The Budos Band III over here.
Also check out Spinner’s exclusive interview with the band’s baritone sax player, Jared Tankel, over here.
PS Sharon Jones pics are coming!
