Yojimbo is an experimental grimy-groove funk-jazz band that grinds out driving rhythms behind psychedelic petri dish-grown melodies.

Self-identifying as "Guardians of the Groove for the people," Yojimbo brings its particular brand of funk from New Orleans –- the home of groove and swing and a hell of a place to cut your teeth as a jazz musician. Yojimbo is comprised of Doc Sharp on Moog bass and keyboards, Radam G on drums and percussion, Carly Meyers on trombone and Cliff Hines on guitar. Their sound captures everything from boogaloo to free jazz, often displaying several styles within the same song. Laid-back grooves are just as prevalent as harder driving, darker rhythms, with great funk-jazz riding on top of it all.

When Yojimbo is laying it down, it unquestionably motivates listeners to move and dance. The band masterfully captures the feel of funk and combines it with progressive dance grooves, while still providing listeners a healthy helping of jazz. One might be tempted to call it intellectual dance music, but in the end it's too much fun to listen to, so it's called Yojimbo instead.
