What the hell is a Slapbak?!?! Is it violent, like a smack down of retaliation? Is it sexual, like the sting
In the 90s, 92.3 The Beat titled OC based band Slapbak, The New Keepers Of The Funk. But this 6 six piece band crosses just about every musical boundary, as long as they can put their Funk backbone behind it. The band is cross between Funkadelic, Rage Against The Machine, OutKast and No Doubt. They've done 2 albums under Warner Brothers Records as well as many licensed cd releases overseas. Between the founder Jara Harris and Slapbak, they've worked with Bootsy Collins, George Clinton, The Time, Dazz Band, Cameo, Jordin Sparks, Fishbone, Earth Wind & Fire, Snoop Dogg, Digital Underground to name a few. When you see their live show, you see nothing but energy on the stage.....along with a hard smackin' tight groove. The show and the music speaks for itself. They have an undeniable sound that Jara has fine tuned over the years. They call it "Urban Crunch" because it's funky with a rock alternative edge....with a little hip hop swag.
In the last 3 years Slapbak has really gotten into taking popular songs and putting their sound on it. They also have mash-ups that will blow your mind like James Brown mashed up with Rage Against The Machine, Commodores and Led Zeppelin, Blur and Prince. You just never know what cover song they'll dig up .... but I promise you'll want to dance to every single one.
