Have you ever wondered what the incredible players of the Menahan Street Band, Budos Band, The Arcs, The Dap-Kings and band members of Charles Bradley and Lee Fields would sound like if they all got together and jammed on a record? Well, that sort of happened.
Thomas Brenneck, Dave Guy, Leon Michels, Nicholas Movshon, Homer Steinweiss, Michael Leonhart, Neal Sugarman, Evan Pazner, and Toby Pazner are those men and they did just that. They are The Olympians.
Their debut is as a soulful, instrumental record as you would imagine. Some of New York’s finest musicians and producers teaming up on a Daptone Records release tends to do that.
