Shake It with the Pimps of Joytime on Friday Night

January 4th, 2012

The Pimps of Joytime formed in 2005, and their sound, influenced by Brooklyn DJ culture, is a musical stew of rock, soul, afrobeat, salsa, electronica, rap and infectious Latin grooves. Led by the charismatic Brian J, the Brooklyn-based band has steadily played club and festival gigs, leaving smiling, sweaty people in their wake each time. And now you can start off the first weekend of 2012 by shaking your ass when the Pimps of Joytime (above, doing “Janxta Funk”) play The Bowery Ballroom on Friday.
