what had happened is...

Hazard to Ya Booty was just another mid-level funk band trying to make it in St. Louis. Then something happened. During an open jam one night at practice they stumbled upon a groove so powerful, so profound, that the music itself became physical. The funk had so much stank on it that the room smelled funny. The presence of this music was palpable. Forever changed, HTYB laughed euphorically and dubbed this music CRUNCHY FUNK.

Hazard has just completed work on a full-length crunch funk opus entitled The Precipice, which drops this spring (2013). In the meantime you can listen to a sample of the crunchy funk, like us on facebook, sign the mailing list, and download some tracks.


The Precipice is nearing completion!

Hazard's new album is almost done! This Crunch Funk opus is called The Precipice and will drop summer 2013. Soon!

The album contains 14 original songs:

1. The Precipice (of Human Ability)
2. Badass Me
3. Ya Mama

5. Paint Ya Canvass
6. Steak Sandwich
7. Willie Dillinger
8. Take My Glasses Off
9. F.U.N.K.
10. Access Pass
11. Mistress
12. Criticize

Stay tuned for more details and release info!

Hazard to Ya Booty's 3rd LP: THE PRECIPICE

We know you've been clamoring for it, we just want you to know it's coming. We have the songs written and they're dopism. Now that our horn lineup is solid with Jeremiah on trombone and Matt on trumpet we can move toward the album full speed ahead. Should be done in 2011. Giddy up!!
