SNACKTIME Shares “Gotta Get Funky (While You’re Takin A Shit)” 

Is Philadelphia the place to be? The SNACKTIME septet is heavy on the brass, funky on the rhythms but also infuses punk, jazz, pop, and R&B influences within its sound. The group recently released its highly anticipated debut album, Sounds From The Street: Live!, and today shares the video for “Gotta Get Funky (While You’re Takin A Shit)”

“This was our first original song,” notes sousaphone player Sam Gellerstein. “MC and alto-sax player Yesseh Furaha-Ali had COVID and had a funky idea while on the toilet. He sent us a brief outline of what it would sound like and we expounded upon it during gigs outside of Citizens Bank Park and the Live! Casino in south Philadelphia.”
