Founded in 2010, the Jackson, Miss.-based Southern Komfort Brass Band brought together seven musicians who quickly discovered their niche—New Orleans-style street jazz with a unique Mississippi twist. Today with nine musicians, their focus on traditional Brass Band standards makes for an enthralling, upbeat and amusing live show. The band has opened for national recording acts including Snoop Dogg, The Funky Meters, Dr. John and Wilco. Southern Komfort Brass Band performs originals as well as special arrangements of popular blues, jazz and R&B tunes, never failing to get audiences singing, dancing and occasionally forming second-lines—following the band in a brass band parade.
The newest addition to the Daptone Family the Como Mamas are three lifelong Gospel singers from the small town of Como Mississippi. On their brand new, critically acclaimed album ‘Get an Understanding’ there are only three instruments – The powerful, raspy voice of Ester Mae Smith, the deep soothing voice of Angela Taylor, and the energetic, spirited vocals of Della Daniels.
