"Banooba's Travels" is the first studio release by Banooba. We worked very hard on this album and have put out an incredible album that we are very proud of. Don't take our word for it... go check it out for yourself!!
We had the pleasure of having some really great musicians lay down some horn and hammond organ tracks. These musicians include:
-Rob Somerville - Tenor Sax (DEEP BANANA BLACKOUT)
-Donnie Celenza - B3 hammond organ
-Jeff Sheloff - Tenor Sax
BANOOBA, formerly known as THE PROJECT, is an original funk rock band from NY. Each member brings their own unique influence into the groove and adds to the show. Live shows prove to be energetic and spontaneous, and the band is known for playing a impressive live set guaranteed to get you in the partying groove. You never know when you might find Kevin Kershko playing guitar with his teeth, Pete standing up to play the drums or Kevin Torres playing a guitar solo with a drumstick. Ryan and Kevin Sloan are constantly grooving, providing energy for the band and the crowd. As for the rest, come down to see it for yourself!
Banooba has shared the stage with some nationally renowned acts such as:
-The Bomb Squad
-Deep Banana Blackout
-The Zen Tricksters
-Sam Kininger (Soulive)
-Oteil Burbridge and the Peacemakers (Bassist for the Allman Brothers).
-Yohimbe Brothers (featuring DJ Logic and Vernon Reid of Living Colour)
You can also catch Rob Somerville of Deep Banana Blackout playing tenor sax on few tracks of "Banooba's Travels."
QUOTES & REVIEWS:
"There aren't too many young bands out there who can combine solid, original songwriting with tight execution and the ability to stretch without noodling. 'Banooba' does just this. It's refreshing! High energy, bumpin' grooves, solid vocals, and hip hooks for your booty-shakin' pleasure!"
-Bryan Smith, Trombone, Deep Banana Blackout 2004
"...These guys groove like it's their last day on earth, with irresistable songs and wicked musicianship..."
-Good Time Magazine, Dan Brown, January 2004
