Music for Monday, Funky Tonight by the John Butler Trio.
They call him “The Million Dollar Hippie.” John Butler is a great man with a message.
He was discovered while busking in Fremantle, Western Australia, and is well known for his political beliefs and environmental convictions. The John Butler Trio are the only band I have ever seen in both Australia and the US, three times total. They are phenomenal live; it’s hard to believe such sound can be created by three men with such velocity. They are completely in sync, yet each one manages to shine separately. A true pleasure to watch and experience.
The JBT’s unique style ranges from alternative to blue grass, reggae to jam band. I chose this song because I love how rich and varied it is. The video is a cute concept.
