Booty: the force that brings us together.
Having started as a conceptual space-funk opera in 2008 by brothers Nathan and Dylan Germick, Planet Booty has evolved into a hip-grinding, sweat-pouring live show of epic proportions. The expanded ensemble fuses electronics (synths, beats, samples) with live instruments (drums, guitars, horns, percussion..) and a hellacious excess of energy. The resulting blend of dance beats pushes the limits of space-funk and electro-gospel, drawing influences from such artists as LMFAO, Chromeo, Talking Heads and James Brown.
Planet Booty’s mission to bring the party and unlock human potential is actualized to its most beautiful, raunchy effect on the dancefloor. Their combination of musicianship and electrifying, ass-shaking performances have earned them a reputation as a must-see live act, first in San Francisco but increasingly so in Los Angeles, San Diego, and other west coast markets. Planet Booty has performed at marathons, bike parties, fitness competitions, “church” services… and of course at countless better-known venues such as Bimbo’s 365 Club, Café du Nord, DNA Lounge, Bottom of the Hill, Viper Room, The Mint, and many more.
