LA Maggots is a band that arose from the jam sessions, nightclubs, garages and cookouts in the Los Angeles neighborhoods. The band serves as a tribute to the music of Parliament, Funkadelic, George Clinton, James Brown, Sly Stone and others. Most of the band members are full-time local musicians who came together with alumni from these renowned bands. The name of the band arises from the title of the classic Funkadelic album MAGGOT BRAIN and a statement by bandleader George Clinton that the multitudes of fans looked like a swarm of maggots before him (there may have been hallucinogens working to that assessment).
The core 7 piece roster is a mini-funk orchestra featuring:
Danny Ritter~Drums, vocals
Charlie Lake~ Music Director, guitar, vocals
Kensworth Perrigen ~Lead vocals
Christopher Parker ~Keyboards
Oly Nero~ Bass, vocals
Tate Simms ~Guitar, vocals
