The Horny Horns


The Horny Horns

The Horny Horns were a horn section associated with Parliament-Funkadelic and Bootsy's Rubber Band led by trombonist Fred Wesley. The group also featured saxophonist Maceo Parker and Rick Gardner and Richard 'Kush" Griffith on trumpets.

While they are best-known for their contributions to other P-Funk projects, The Horny Horns also recorded two albums under their own name, "A Blow for Me, A Toot for You" (1977) and "Say Blow By Blow Backwards" (1979). A compilation of unreleased tracks were released in 1994 on the CD "The Final Blow".

They also performed on the 1990 hit "Groove is in the Heart" by Deee-Lite.
