Dear funkateers, you might have come here via one of the buttons on my latest…
This groove jam funk band, based in and around Linz in Upper Austria, is run by drummer Josef Hinterh?lzl (aka Joe Backwood). Over the last year or so I had the great pleasure of working and playing with this fun and high energy five piece – what’s more is that Joe has picked all the tunes from my original repertoire and has also tasked me with MDing the band – there is really nothing not to love about this gig!
As we are young band we are looking to add to our existing gig circuit – one of the steps we have taken towards this is to release our first EP called ‘Brother Joe’s Garage’ featuring five original songs. Have a listen/download on any of the provided links below – choose your favorite service, heads up though, only on Bandcamp you can NAME YOUR PRICE – give us whatever you think the music is worth to you or even better, invite us to your next festival – no matter how big or small!
Backwood Five are:
A big thank you to Tom Fitzsimmons who helped us out in the studio and last but not least Karl Vanden Bossche who overdubbed percussion @his on ‘Samurei Phunk’ and ‘Scarlett Town’ – always a pleasure to work with such master musician (“More cowbell, anyone?”).
