Papa Grows Funk have announced that they will be taking an indefinite hiatus so the bandmembers can pursue other musical interests. The group, which has been a staple of the New Orleans music scene for more than a decade, will continue playing for the next six months and will honor all of their bookings, including their weekly Monday night gigs at the Maple Leaf Bar. In addition to the Maple Leaf shows, the band has a few performances scheduled in Baton Rouge, LA, Houston and Austin, TX. A full list of their upcoming shows can be viewed here. As previously reported, Papa Grows Funk recently rang in the New Year with the Rebirth Brass Band at the Howlin’ Wolf in New Orleans.
