A loose-knit group of musicians drawn from Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings (Dave Guy, Homer Steinweiss, Fernando Velez, Bosco Mann), El Michels Affair (Leon Michels, Toby Pazner), Antibalas (Nick Movshon, Aaron Johnson) and the Budos Band (Mike Deller, Daniel Fodder), the Menahan Street Band was assembled by producer Thomas Brenneck. Recorded in Brenneck's Menahan Street. apartment in Bushwick, Brooklyn, the conglomerate band blended a whole array of influences into a fresh approach to instrumental soul music that is as odd and quirky as it is familiar. The group's debut album, Make the Road by Walking, was released on Dunham Records, an imprint of Brenneck's own Daptone label, in 2008. ~ Steve LeggettPortions of Content Provided by Rovi Corporation.
