Pimps of Joytime
The Pimps of Joytime are a multi-ethnic group that hits all the marks and crosses all the barriers, bridging the gap between underground funk, soul, pop, dance, afrobeat and latin, filling every song with soulful harmonies and uplifting vibes.
Brian J is the bands visionary. He started The PJTs in Brooklyn back in 2005, where they cut their teeth while playing clubs in Williamsburg and the East Village. On stage, hes the lead singer, guitarist and keyboardist, and in the studio, hes the funkiest one-man-band this side of Minneapolis.
Mixing samples and dance beats with tasty live musicianship and sweet vocal harmonies, The Pimps of Joytime have evolved into the current five-piece that gets crowds on their feet from London to San Francisco. Somehow, The PJTs found a way to put a modern twist on a retro sound, creating dirty, ass-shakin grooves like no one else out there.
2008 was a great year for The Pimps of Joytimethey put out two albums on DJ Nickodemus Wonderwheel Recordings, High Steppin and Funk Fixes and Remixes. 2009 has been even betterThe PJT's have already played over 100 shows from California to North Carolina to Alaska, and somehow found the time to complete their newest album, "Funky Brooklyn" which is coming soon...
