You know I'm a 70's funk fanatic. If you listen to my music, you'll hear that vein running throughout. I love
The Ohio Players
George Clinton and P-Funk
The Gap Band
Earth, Wind, and Fire
KC and the Sunshine Band
They are funky like a monkey! They were the inspiration for "Let's Make it Funky", obviously.
Every time I'm driving to a show, I have my headset on listening to this type of music. There's not much else to do at 3am on I-49. So I listen, absorb, create. I love funky riffs, and try to re-create that with an accordion. Add in B3 or horns and a few vocal "Hoo" "Ha's" and you've arrived at my ideal flavor of music. If you were following a trail of highly danceable music with complex grooves, tight rhythmic hits, on the back beat, you would arrive at the hybrid "swamp-funky" music that is Chubby Carrier.
Here's our latest video with the lyrics that tell a story and that story is for you, my friend. If you enjoy it, let us know by leaving a comment. You can share it, too.
How would you describe our music? In your opinion, what makes our band unique?
