TV Pole Shine plays music that's hot to the touch, and spans the spectrum from lip-smacking to head-scratching. When people ask about genre, we say "Spasm Funk" before blowing off our smoking gun hands and twirling them back into the holsters, ready to fire again.
TV Pole Shine is the only known funk band in New Orleans to feature a bassoon, euphonium and theremin all at once. Equal parts professional musicians and theatre makers, TV Pole Shine is known for their catchy songs, innovative choreography, and radical insistence on audience participation. They released a live compilation, "Live at 'Jazz Fest,'" in August 2018.
