Exploding from (the suburbs of) Detroit rock city in 2001, and venturing to the absolute bottom of the rabbit hole by 2015, Downtown Brown (DTB) has carved a unique saga over their 14-year existence. Jamming a mutant style that splices together punk, funk, metal, rock, and hip-hop, DTB is a band impossible to categorize. People tend to either love them, hate them, or are just generally puzzled by their often politically incorrect, outrageous, satiric lyrics coupled with genre-hopping technical skill.

After nearly a decade of independently releasing media (4 full-length albums, a live album, and multiple dvds) and touring (100+ shows a year), Downtown Brown amassed a loyal following due to their infectious, energetic and ridiculously entertaining live show.

They signed with DC-Jam Records in 2010 to release their 5th studio album ‘Grabbleton’s Beach’, a concept piece that had critics scratching their heads due to its musical A.D.D. and lyrics ranging from childish absurdity to tongue-in-cheek satire. All confusion aside, the album helped propel DTB’s popularity to new heights and remains a fan favorite to this day.

In 2011, DTB caught the attention of Fishbone founding member Norwood Fisher, who soon after signed on to manage the band. Since Fisher’s involvement, the band has secured numerous endorsements, played multiple festivals, and toured with bands like The Adicts, Dead Kennedys, Peelander-Z, Fishbone, Psychostick, Andrew W.K., and even Insane Clown Posse (with whom they recorded a hilarious duet with in 2012).

DTB recorded and released their 6th full-length album ‘Masterz of the Universe’ in 2013. Produced by Fisher, ‘Masterz’ is the band’s first attempt at a ‘serious’ rock record. Although some of the material echoes DTB’s previous recorded lunacy, most of the album is comprised of tightly focused compositions written from a sincere state of being. The lyrics chronicle band leader Neil P.’s internal battles; dishing with brutal honesty about depression, love, chemical dependency, the state of the world, and staying true to the band’s artistic vision against all odds. In true DTB fashion, the music remains incredibly diverse, provocative, fun, and possesses undeniable pop sensibility.

2015 finds Downtown Brown thriving in a world full of easy-to-define, cookie-cutter music. Combining metal grooves, spastic funk, catchy riff rock, and all-over-the-place vocals, DTB’s broadly enjoyable sound and incomparable live show has captured the attention of a global audience. In the Summer of 2015, the band will release their 2nd live album and will continue to tour relentlessly, spreading their warped gospel to unsuspecting music fans across the land.

DJ Do$ Lopez – GreyRegg Mix featuring Zoo Hippies

10-21-15

What type of music?
 
Zoo Hippies performs and eclectic mix of music from different genres which includes rock, jam, funk and reggae.  We pride ourselves in performing live as a cover band while portraying songs that are not as typical as other cover bands.  This is done but performing music from the past and present and also some original tunes.
When did you first start?
 
Zoo Hippies started in November 2011 as a solid 4 piece but has morphed into an acoustic duo as well as a 7 piece which includes bass, drums, 2 guitars, keyboards, harmonica, percussion and 2 vocalists.  Our first show was at Fifth Avenue in Royal Oak on December 29, 2011
Why did you decide to start it?
 
At the time I took a year off of my original band Lucky Brown to pursue a new project and to earn income with other musicians.
Are you a solo Artist or part of group?
 
The whole idea with Zoo Hippies is incorporating other musicians into this project to provide a variety of influence and music to perform.  Those who may come to a show may notice that each show is different and may have different musicians performing the shows as well.  Our core group is Aaron Brown (keys/vocals), Kedree Young (guitar/vocals), Alastair Nix (bass), and Chris Rink (drums).
What name do you go by?
 
Zoo Hippies
How did you come up with the name?
 
As you may know it’s challenging to come up with a band name, however literally Zoo Hippies popped into my head and was the most descriptive name that describes our style of music and vibe that we portray.
Who do you like to collaborate with?
 
We happen to live in a musical community so sometimes we perform shows purely based on which musicians are available at the time.  Most of us play in multiple bands so this project is excellent since our purpose includes a variety of talent.
Where do you play?
 
Currently we perform mostly at Dick O Dows on Saturdays in downtown Birmingham.  Last weekend we performed at Patrick Js in downtown Berkley MI.  We will also be playing at Hamlin Pubs in near future.
When are your upcoming shows?
 
We are taking a short break at the moment since I will be traveling and performing shows with my original reggae dub band 1/2 Way There in November.  We will be on this show next month to promote a big show at Black Lotus and The Crofoot.  Zoo Hippies will resume shows in December and January 2016.
