The Zerbe Strut Band

 Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA

The Zerbe Strut Band is a performance band playing a groove-based blend of cool blues, soulful funk and a smattering of hot jazz. Consisting of Bass, Drums, Guitar and Hammond organ, The Zerbe Strut Band will challenge you to remain still.


“One of THE best funky bands in Albuquerque."

Booty shaking party music best describes the sounds of the Zerbe Strut Band, one of the most successful funk bands to come out of Albuquerque. Always in search of the groove, they find themselves improvising in ways that takes the listener to new heights.

The Zerbe Strut Band has gathered the individual talents of its members into one unique sound, but still retains the initial energy they had in the beginning when they formed their first band that was more traditional blues-based. “While we still throw in some blues sounds, now we try to make our songs and our groove all our own,” and it shows in both their original and cover material.

The band plays shows all over the southwest and midwest each year for its growing fan base. Covering New Mexico, Arizona, Nevada, Texas, Colorado and Kansas, the Zerbe Strut Band brings their blend of groove-based tunes to both festivals and high-end music venues. No matter where they play when they announce, "We're the Zerbe Strut Band and we're gonna bring you soulful funk, cool blues and hot jazz," the crowd goes wild.
