Since their inception in 2012, THE M.F.B. have laid waste to the local music landscape with grooves so contagious and an over-the-top stage show that has left audiences mesmerized and funkified. Equal parts funk musicianship and excessive funk party madness, lead vocalist Parry Casto, bassist Stephen Harper, drummer James Hairston, keyboardist/ guitarist Randy Gilkey, guitarist Blake Burkholder and synth/trombonist Al Cardwell unleash their own unique brand of raucous party funk to any neighborhood they frequent.
As THE M.F.B's leader of perpetual motion Casto, aka "Funkle Sam", combines the theatrics of Freddie Mercury, the eccentricity of Frank Zappa, and dancing prowess of James Brown. What separates this band from others is the frenetic explosion of unending energy that exudes from a live performance from THE M.F.B.. This hedonistic crescendo of raw energy and musicianship of THE M.F.B.'s shows spill from stage to dance floor to cultivate impromptu conga lines, dance competitions, and an intense funky insanity that marks the band as insatiable for good times. THE M.F.B.'s shows are expectation-defying experiences ushered in by a whirlwind of funk, deft thrusting, and subtle innuendo, that broadens smiles and brings the crowds to anxiously await the opportunity to dance right back for the next show.
Join us as we celebrate our drummer, the mighty and majestic James Hairston’s birthday at midnight! Let’s party and turn it up Charleston West By God Virginia!!
It’s gonna be a shoppin’ spree with THE M.F.B.!
