Foul Mouth Jerk is like the 4th of July, a titty bar & the shark from Jaws all rolled into one. If Einstein impregnated Jenna Jameson with a baby panther, the resulting offspring would be the Jerk. His live shows are more awesome than a diamond-studded birthday cake for a war hero. Upon hearing Foul Mouth's "I Want In" playing in the club Palxico Burress immediately shot himself.
In short the man is a walking James Cameron film. He has performed & recorded with George Clinton, The Artifacts, Masta Ace, Murs, Grandmaster Caz, and many other legends in the music game.

BBorn on the streets of Asheville, NC, Empire Strikes Brass has been exciting fans around the world with their unique and dynamic approach. Since their formation in 2013, ESB intentionally stretches the boundaries of the stereotypical brass band paradigm, fusing sounds from around the globe. Arrangement and the writing process is a collaborative band effort, taking multiple genres of music and weaving them together through the horn section. The diversity present is what makes ESB unique. There are definite nods to Old School Funk, Ska, Southern Rock, Alt Country, Hip Hop, Boogaloo and New Orleans Jazz. Expect face melting guitar solos, soul shaking synthesizer solos, lush vocal harmonies, powerful moving drums, thick nasty bass, hypnotically rhythmic keys and wall to wall horn power. Very few brass bands are able to fuse so many styles and array of technique into their work, but Empire Strikes Brass makes it happen again and again.
ESB is thrilled to announce the release of its debut album, Theme For A Celebration, dropping Friday, February 3, 2017. The album “celebrates” the band’s love for brass instrumentation while drawing inspiration from different musical styles and influences. Throughout the band’s evolution, Empire Strikes Brass has developed its own unique sound that evolved from a traditional New Orleans Brass band to a ‘BrassFunkRock’ band with no limitations. They can share a world of high energy music in one setting that is packed full of flavor. In 2016 they played multiple festivals, had the pleasure of having Warren Haynes sit in with them at New Mountain Amphitheater in Asheville, celebrated the life of Dizzy Gillespie for the fourth year in a row in his hometown of Cheraw, SC, for the South Carolina Jazz and Heritage Festival, co- billed with Dr. John & Lettuce and even paraded hundreds of folks to a secret stage late night at the Big What? Festival. Empire Strikes Brass is now primed to take things to the next level on the national and international scenes with their eclectically evolved sound. more >>>
Touring since 1997, GFE creates a live-wire party whenever they drop the beat! GFE's music consists of positive hip-hop rhymes over a fusion of funk based jams which expand into reggae, rock, metal, blues and soul. With over 100 songs, GFE creates a musical collage of modern day pop-culture. They are an extravaganza of artistry; with five musicians, three emcee's and a vocalist, the shows are Guaranteed Fresh Every time. GFE has a large and growing cross-country fan base who travels to see them play. Word of mouth advertising has been packing venues the band has only played one or two times. more >>>
