Shepherdstown funksters drop new album

By Staff | Jan 31, 2018

Mid-Atlantic based funk-fusion maestros Ginada Pinata, out of Shepherdstown, are proud to announce the release of their new self-titled album. Ginada Pinata contains eight tracks of original material written and arranged by longtime bandmates Sam Jannotta (keyboards), Ken Bussey (guitar), Matthew Lewis (bass) and Jesse Shultzaberger (drums), whose accomplished musicianship and 20 years of history combine to produce a hard-grooving portrait of modern funk. Recorded in two sessions at Unger and Mystery Ton Studies, and mixed/mastered by Oskar Sadle in Stockholm, Sweden, the album explores vintage soundscapes while fusing myriad genres without sacrificing the quintessential driving sound that fans have come to expect from the group.

Ginada Pinata taps the influences of jazz, funk, rock, fusion and trance and blends it to create an organic vibe that entertains and excites audiences. Founded in Shepherdstown in 1998 and getting funkier all the time, Ginada Pinata constantly pushes the boundaries new sounds and feels.
