Sinister Dexter is a 10-piece group with 5 smokin' horns, a tight rhythm section, and a lead singer with a set of pipes that'll knock you out.

We bring the funk all night long, but we're not your average funk band cuz we mix it up with some blues and latin that kick your dancing muscles into overdrive. Come check us out at our next show, and find out what you've been missing!
