Stymie and the Pimp Jones Luv Orchestra

STYMIE & THE PIMP JONES LUV ORCHESTRA, a Bay Area-bred, 12-piece tribe of thingamajigs lead by singer-songwriter Sean “Stymie” Sharp, has come a long way since hitting the scene more than two decades ago! Voted "Best Funk Band" by the SF Weekly and opening for the likes of Earth, Wind, & Fire, Fred Wesley, Digital Underground, Buckwheat Zydeco and Billy Preston, the current incarnation, combines returning veterans and funky-fresh blood, and has Stymie tickled stink. “This version of the band is carving out its own identity with these latest songs.” Teaming with writing partner/arranger/keyboardist Simon Rochester, Stymie has been writing new ditties at an astonishing pace, “inspired by the blessing of these talented people.” Taste their new material on the four-song EP, Songs We Pretend to Be, while the band is hard at work on a new album, The Funkativity Joint.
