Funk/electronic/rock. NBFB presents an exciting live show featuring effects-laden psychedelic funk reminiscent of The Meters meets The New Deal meets The Red Hot Chili Peppers with a solid jazz foundation.


NBFB is quickly emerging as a premier live act in the Northeast. Combining elements of funk, rock, electronic, reggae, and jazz, the band relies on diverse musical influences to develop its signature “space-funk” sound. In concert, NBFB jams on extended solo sections but grounds itself in creative and ever-changing arrangements. The band’s collective songwriting evolves constantly, producing a deep repertoire of material that can astound even their most dedicated fans.
