Pimps of Joytime
With one of the best band names ever, Pimps of Joytime bring serious fun and a lot of joy, frankly. Infectious grooves form the basis of converging influences from New Orleans, San Francisco and the group’s headquarters, Brooklyn. Its most recent recording is Pimps’ fourth LP, Third Wall Chronicles, and it provides the recommended daily dose of seriously funky music. Pimps of Joytime is Brian Jay (lead vocals/guitar), Mayteana Morales (vocals/percussion), Kimberly Dawson (vocals), David Bailis (bass/sampler) and John Staten (drums).
