The Comb Down was brought together by the one and only Brian “Gourd” Mlodzinski. Gourd aka DJ Gourd has been spinning funky vinyl for over two decades and has a reputation for bringing his listeners and dancers into an atmosphere that is hard to forget and easy to crave. Gourd is well known for his collection of raw 70’s funk, 80’s boogie/synth funk, Afrobeat, Disco, 80’s/90’s Hip-Hop and straight up dance classics. With his love of the music, guitar, showmanship and having a grand time, a band like this was inevitable.
It eventually came time to dust off the old Hammond b3 and her sister Leslie Speaker, add a few horns to the mix whilst incorporating the tough and very necessary foundational element of drums and bass; voila, The Comb Down was born. Focusing specifically on the musical styles of 1960’s-1970’s funk, paying proper homage to the historic nuances, attire and instrumentation is something that the band doesn’t take lightly.
