Led by drummer Kevin O'Day, Live Animals performs challenging originals with fast tempos, odd meters and the occasional melody by Sun Ra thrown in the mix. Kevin is one of New Orleans' most in demand drummers and has performed with just about every musician in town including Anders Osbourne and Walter "Wolfman" Washington.
Live Animals features Smoky Brown on guitar, Josh Paxton on piano and Jimbo Walsh on bass. It is a musical collective that composes and performs the most interesting, beautiful and funky music possible! Their mission is to groove hard, be insanely tight and write incredible music.
