Here is a band that will immediately become your favorite group for dance and live entertainment. The 206 Ribshack BBQ Orchestra is the finest in live, classic funk and dance music in Seattle, period. With emphasis on “live” (no sampled loops or background track at all) this is a group of five local Seattle musicians who are widely recognized together and individually as front-runners in 70s and 80s funk and dance music.
What started as a weekly jam session three years ago has grown to become a highly respected group, favorite to musicians and dance audiences alike. If it's the funk you’re looking for, look no further. 206 Ribshack is a super-sized serving of phat, funky, charbroiled grooves, sizzlin’ soulful ballads, with a side order comedy and laughs - Fun as a finger-lickin’, family back-yard cook-out.
The band plays music from their favorite classic funk bands like:
Cameo, Parliament, Marvin Gaye, Ohio Players, Slave, Roger T. and Zapp, Rick James, Kool & the Gang, Lakeside, The Time, Teddy Pendergrass, Al Green, Earth, Wind & Fire, The Spinners, and on, and on.... Easy-listening, variety and jazz standard can also be performed by request for special engagements. Selected to perform this year at the Sonics games at Key Arena the 206 Ribshack BBQ Orchestra performs at numerous private engagements and select venues around the Puget Sound.
