More on Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket
Boston based funk band Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket blaze a groove-laden trail across the indie/underground music scene. In 2009 the eleven-piece band made their debut slugging out long sweaty sets of their all-original trademark funk in the beer-soaked, dimly lit music clubs of Boston’s most notorious
boroughs. Wherever Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket plays, nobody in the place sits
down. Touring the festival circuits from Northern Maine to the Southern coast of Massachusetts, Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket has built a dedicated following throughout the New England and Tri-State areas. The band even caught the attention of funk legends “Clip” Payne and Michael “Kidd Funkadelic” Hampton, of Parliament- Funkadelic, who joined the band on stage as the band performed their hit “Photonic Amplifier People.”
Fronted by New Jersey native and regular Salem music staple Sarah “Lil Shrimp” Seminski with support from Boston-bred emcee Lord Micah (a.k.a. “Big Daddy Disco”), the vocal work is at the forefront in the band, creating a very unique hybrid of classic funk/Soul and modern Hip Hop/R&B. Beneath the superb vocal work is a tremendous ensemble, featuring a full compliment of horns and
percussion, that undulates with a pulse and pop that recalls the hard-hitting deep funk grooves of the 60’s and 70’s.
Upon the long-awaited release of their first studio album in April of 2012, Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket’s “Beantown Sound” gained international kudo’s, garnering positive reviews by music journalists in The United Kingdom, Pakistan, Brazil, and Japan while seeing album sales in Eastern Europe and Canada as well. International publications based in the U.S. took notice also, with High Times magazine putting their album review to print in the January ’13 issue, while the bands fan favorite “You Make me Feel (like dancin’)” was listed among The Boston Herald’s top songs of 2012, outranking several internationally recognized pop acts. Additionally, the Boston-based funkateers ranked #14 on the December ’12 radio charts as listed by HYPERLINK "http://jambands.com/" jambands.com in The January/Febraury issue of Relix magazine.
In this age of “auto-tuned” vocals, where the music industry cranks out homogenized electronic sounds filled with vapid content, seemingly regurgitating “hit” songs for a “target audience”, Big Ol’ Dirty Bucket is at the forefront of a return to good popular music—made by human hands and souls, performed by real people, and meant to be enjoyed by all.
"All of the album’s tracks are strong and filled with funk front to back. Fans of the Brand New Heavies, Teena Marie, and even Black Eyed Peas will certainly appreciate this offering." - Funkatopia
"Big Ol' Dirty Bucket is a nasty, sweaty, funky experience all its own." - Danny Bedrosian - Parliament Funkadelic, 420 Funk Mob, Secret Army
