Fabulous Fantoms

"The Fabulous Fantoms [are] one of the funkiest groups that ever graced the bare-knuckled social and pleasure club scene of New Orleans East in the late 60s and early 70s. The Fantoms could have had the national success of such artists as Kool & The Gang, the Ohio Players, Sly & The Family Stone and their New Orleans contemporaries, the Meters. However, due to a combination of bad timing and missed opportunities they failed to get the recognition that they truly deserved. The Fantoms were a killer live unit, at times consisting of up to 10 members and were renown for their combustible shows. They honed their chops throughout their ten-year career through steady gigging on New Orleans' night, social and pleasure club circuit, often performing two 2 - 3 hour marathons a night. Through this constant live performance they were able to develop the rarified "dead in-the-pocket" funk sound whose awesomeness has only been heard previously on record with the Meters." -- TuffCity.com
