A recent PBS Feature Album, Karate Boogaloo's Hold Your Horses is a journey from start to finish, each tune melding seamlessly into the next. The band's sophomore album is a document of Karate Boogaloo’s distinct interpretation of instrumental funk; respectfully building on a legacy of soul music whilst remaining unimpeachably unique and authentic.

Karate Boogaloo brought their signature sounds to PBS when they joined DJ Manchild on The Breakdown for a special Studio 5 Live set. Listen back to the full performance here.

Check out a clip of the band performing 'The Early Bird Catches' live in Studio 5 below:
