Over the course of the past four years, the Pimps of Joytime have evolved into a road tested and audience approved groove machine. They have excited crowds at over 100 club dates and festivals in 2010 and this year’s ongoing “All The Way Live” tour far exceeds the volume of previous years. Amazingly, their stage performance improves each night as the electricity between the band members rises to new heights. This fluidity is not something you can manufacture, it is an authentic and exciting collaboration that is the Pimps of Joytime.
Hailing from Brooklyn, NY, the Pimps of Joytime are paving their own unique path in the world. What do you do when there isn’t a phrase to describe your sound? You coin a new one of course! Janxta Funk, as Brian J describes it " is a style that is part gangsta, part janky." Janxta Funk ranges from Latin inspired rhythms to deep funky grooves and hot dance beats laced with soulful melody and harmonies. Those who have experienced a Pimps show agree that you have to see the band live to truly understand their unique combination of musical elements, including afrobeat, rock, hip-hop and electronica. The exponential growth of the band's fan base is attributed to their artful blend of musical styles framed by bandleader Brian J's classic songwriting along with the band's undeniable swagger on stage. Their live synergy consistently inspires dance parties wherever the band appears!
