Jesus and the Rabbis
Jesus and the Rabbis
He was born on a cold, wet, unforgiving night in early January, 1864. His parents, both slaves from Missouri, looked down on their first born son with the hope that someday he would do great things, and eventually, their hopes were realized. The man born that day would go on to make great strides in agricultural science, as well as giving the African American farmers of the south a diverse set of crops to replace their destructive cotton plants. That man was named George Washington Carver, and he is not a member of Jesús and the Rabbis, so fuck him.

Jesús and the Rabbis were once a phoenix born from the ashes of a thousand funky dreams. They were Jesús the hat, wielding his bass of slap damnation, and Joshua the wet, who used his glory axe to weave beautiful melodies around the fair bitches of the land. They met many a fine drummer on their adventures, but all were slain by the powers of distance, education, or hepatitis. The men thought that all chances of reaching the summit of Red Hot Mama Mountain were lost, but then, through the dense fog of a San Francisco morning, our funky friends saw a grooving light shining brighter than a thousand gay suns. The source of that light was Christopher Cookies Kelly, master skin slammer and head bob aficionado. With their powers of groove united, the group burned their way across the west coast of the United States in a way unseen since the fall of the Tupac Kingdom.

Ultimately the band reached their goal of Red Hot Mama Mountain, and what they found was a surprise to all. The woman there was small in stature, and strange in demeanor, but more powerful in voice than any white woman seen in ages. When asked her name, all the woman could say was WYYYYSSSEEE, and thus the band was complete. To this day the band can be seen throughout the world, and should they come to your town it is vital to your very survival that you put on your dancing shoes, lock up your daughters, and come the funk down.
