Artist Bio

Co-led by Max Cowan (keys) and Daniel Casares (sax), Bay Area-based Atta Kid is East Bay funk with New Orleans soul. Taking funk to a new place, Atta Kid's set consists of smart originals and flipped covers that toe the line between contemplation and booty-shakin'.

The band is composed of the funkiest players anywhere, whose resumés range from Irma Thomas to Zigaboo Modeliste. Atta Kid adds a New Orleans exit to each side of the Bay Bridge.
