Do the Funky Pidgin

Meet Family Dinner:
"Chew on this: equal parts hip-hop, Latin, and ska, with crunchy bits of ukulele and country twang, stewed to perfection in a broth of straight funk. You’re now listening to Family Dinner.

Original core members Joel Spiral (lead vocals and ukulele), Reggie Padilla (piano and saxophone), and Alfredo Rivera (tenor saxophone) actually met at a family dinner. They almost immediately recognized each other’s passion for music and had started a band by the time the dessert plates were being scraped clean."
Check out tracks from their new self-titled CD release here. "No Ack" features ukulele front and center. Honolulu Magazine has a nice feature article about the band in its March Issue.
