Our guest this episode is drummer Chris Lacinak. Chris has drummed with some legendary people like Gatemouth Brown, Papa Mali, Tab Benoit, & Adam Peters of Echo & The Bunnymen and Family of God to name a few. But his love of New Orleans jazz and second line drumming drove him to form his band Junko Beat with Vernon Rome and Will Snowden.

This episode was an education for me in a genre of music that I was not at all familiar with, but am now deeply intrigued by. Chris tells some great stories of touring with Gatemouth, moving all over the country and playing sessions. There’s also some great New Orleans jazz history in here. So there’s something for everybody. Check out Junko Beat’s new album Satirifunk on streaming services or their website, Subscribe, rate, & review the show. Follow us @PerformanceAnx on the socials. And let jump right into some funky stuff with Chris Lacinak and Junko Beat.
