"Unique, High-Energy, Captivating Sound"

Cousin Junebug Funk band - to use an old cliche - really rocks!

One night at the Artivist Film Festival - after screening a short film on the environment - I was blown away when I stumbled across the spirited musicians hired to entertain the evening's guests in the exotic open courtyward at the Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood.

Fortunately, my video camera was on hand, so I whpped it out and captured a few amazing riffs, drum-rolls, and horn-plays on tape, much to the delight of my music-loving friends who can't soak up enough of this unique, high-energy, captivating sound! - The Tattler
