We have played together in many settings over the decades: John Lurie’s Lounge Lizards, Sex Mob, Medeski Martin & Wood, Spanish Fly, The Jazz Passengers, Get Shorty (The feature film) and many other gigs.

Early last year (2010) we got together for the first time and recorded Billy's tune Muffaletta for his "anti-instructional"
movie LIFE ON DRUMS and alas, the Wicked seed was sowed.
Our music features various RagTimeFunk joints with inappropriate avant-garde interludes to keep everything out of focus.

It’s about ‘good times during bad times’ and we encourage you to dance with us through life.

No hard feelings,
Your Wicked Knee
