Image: 1607176 Ikebe Shakedown’s debut release is as heavy as an angry herd of
elephants! Recorded at Dunham Studios in Brooklyn with the help of
members of The Budos Band, these tracks are rough and tough to
be sure and offer a variety of different sounds from the band. Ikebe
seamlessly blends the raw emotion and passion of ‘70s African Funk
with the danceable horns and rhythms of American soul music!
BIO: Ikebe Shakedown is Brooklyn-based, eight-piece instrumental
juggernaut that incorporates the sounds of ‘60s and ‘70s African
Funk and American Soul Music for a totally fresh sound. Featuring
dynamic horns backed by a hard-hitting rhythm section, Ikebe
Shakedown (pronounced ee-kay-bay) will get you out of your seat
and onto the dance floor! With obvious influences from legendary
groups such as The J.B.’s and The Meters, Ikebe Shakedown is also
looking to make their own mark on the Brooklyn scene in the vein of
more contemporary groups like The Budos Band, Antibalas, and The
Menahan Street Band.
