The Pimps of Joytime

If you have yet to encounter the Brooklyn-based band The Pimps of Joytime, prepare to take a funky ride! The PJT’s live events and recordings have captivated fans all across the country, as they have begun writing their own success story, show by show, and track by track.

Bandleader Brian J is a charismatic and soulful visionary, whose well-crafted songs invite the listener to enter a world of infectious dance grooves and indelible melodies. Spending formative years in New York City, New Orleans and Los Angeles, Mista J honed his craft, becoming an accomplished live performer, multi-instrumentalist and producer.

In 2005, Brian began to assemble a group of righteously soulful vocalists and musicians to assist in bringing to life the musical concept that would become The Pimps of Joytime. The band’s diverse sound and spirited attitude is strongly influenced by the Brooklyn DJ culture and live music scene from which they emerge. Recent collaborations with legendary artists Cyril and Art Neville of the Neville Brothers and Roy Ayers have helped vitalize the band’s connection to its roots.

Over the course of the past four years, The Pimps have evolved into a road tested and audience approved groove machine. They have excited crowds at over 100 club dates and festivals in 2009 alone, and are on target to exceed that volume in 2010. The exponential growth of the band’s fan base can be partially attributed to an artful blend of musical styles, including elements of afrobeat, salsa, rock & roll and electronica. Brian J’s classic songwriting and the band’s undeniable swagger on stage consistently energizes dance parties wherever they appear.

In 2008, with their first studio album and a remix album released through the boutique label Wonderwheel Recordings, The Pimps of Joytime were prepared to take their career to the highest level. With a steadily increasing repertoire and a passionate following of music lovers in NYC and San Francisco, the time was right to fortify their organization. After seeing the band live, Jesse Aratow of the North American booking agency Madison House signed them on the spot.

The Pimps now has a significant following in other key markets such as, LA, DC, Denver, Chicago, Atlanta, Portland and New Orleans. The wall of their Facebook page is constantly receiving enthusiastic posts from fans across the USA as word of mouth further carries news of this fresh new arrival.
