"Known for his soulful blues and rock&roll saxophone sound, reminiscent of Jr. Walker & the Allstars, Freddy DeBoe has traveled the world with some of the greatest soul singers of our time. This includes Daptone Recording Artists Charles Bradley, Sharon Jones, and the James Hunter Six, as well as Lee Fields & the Expressions, Nicole "Lady" Wray, Binky Griptite, super producer Mark Ronson & many others. Freddy continues to tour worldwide and also perform locally as a bandleader with his own small group. His dynamic sound keeps the energy alive and his band gets the room moving & keeps it grooving, guaranteed to make you get up & dance!"
Binky was born and raised in Milwaukee, and lived in Minneapolis for a bit before moving to NY. He took a break from music for a couple of years, but when he was ready to jump back in, he happened to meet Gabe Roth (co-founder of Daptone Records), and did a couple of sessions for a Lee Fields album. They started doing gigs, and the rest is history.
In addition to playing with the Dap-Kings, Binky has played on platinum selling records by Janet Jackson and Amy Winehouse and toured extensively with Amy in 2007. In 2013, Binky produced the first single by the Impressions in over 30 years, the Curtis Mayfield-penned “Rhythm”.
