Papa Grows Funk Celebrates 10 Years

What started as an all-star jam session ten years ago on a Monday night at the Old Point Bar on Algiers Point has blossomed into one of New Orleans’ most successful funk bands. In 2001, Papa Grows Funk’s Monday night residency moved Uptown to the Maple Leaf Bar, where it has continued to this day.

The band’s breakthrough gig was November 11th, 2000 when they performed at the original Meters reunion after party in San Francisco.  From then on, the band has accumulated a huge fan base through extensive touring, from Tokyo, Japan to San Francisco, CA and everywhere in between, averaging about 100 shows per year and producing four albums of fresh, original music.
