Imagine if the people who made James Brown dance, Kool and the Gang “Celebrate”, and P-Funk’s Mothership fly, all joined forces with some of todays greatest talents for a timeless one of a kind collaboration. This is … The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown, arguably the most ambitious and most exciting music project of any genre, in decades.
The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown started as a star studded tribute to the history of Funk, Soul, R&B, Jam and Hip Hop. Members of Parliament Funkadelic, Bootsy’s Rubber Band, Galactic, Dumpstaphunk, Blackalicious, Derek Trucks Band, Dirty Dozen Brass Band, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, The Lee Boys and Warren Haynes Band, united in late 2007 to create the sonic landscape that became The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown “Volume 1.” Released in 2012, “Volume 1” received global acclaim which paved the way for the next chapter, “Volume 2.” Currently in production, “Volume 2” continues in the same tradition with an expanded line-up that now includes members of The James Brown Band, Kool and the Gang, Earth, Wind and Fire , Living Colour, Fishbone, Mudvayne, Bill Wither’s Band, The Time, Sexual Chocolate Band, The Mike Dillon Band, and Tiny Universe.
“It’s quite extraordinary what they have put together and I’m honored to be a part of this project” says Taylor Dayne . “These are some of the biggest, baddest, greatest Jazz, Funk, Blues, players out there, and what can I say?… I’m a part of Volume 2, it’s very exciting!” Combining household names such as Taylor, Karl Denson, Fred Wesley and George Clinton with emerging stars like Soulful South African native, Laura Reed and the devil throated Reverend Desmond D’Angelo, the Getdown fuses nasty grooves with the freshest and most potent musical flavors, creating their timeless sound. “The entire project was designed to not only pay homage to it’s roots but also to inspire and encourage the next generation of talent to ensure this music’s longevity ” says Getdown’s founder and bassist John Heintz. The enticing magic that comes from this merger of old school and new school is very evident when listening to The Big Ol’ Nasty Getdown.
