Hubba Hubba Says Stuff of Music and More!


Funk rockers HUBBA HUBBA are wanting to help you to escape! With this in mind, this band has a common desire to move you, both visually and musically with their mind bending music. They have content out for all to hear with a lot of stuff in-store thus far. Find out what the band had to say about themselves and their music of course.


1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

Hubba was a culmination and creative love-child of our collective itch to make people groove. We each come from extensive musical backgrounds and had waited some years for the right time to put this outfit together. When we first came together, it was a wild ride of positivity and newness. Like all things in real life, though, we have definitely seen our highs and lows over the last few years. Cutting ties with old members, being stolen from, numerous monetary set backs, but so many highs also! We have gotten to play two of the biggest back to back summer street fests here in our home base market, we've gotten to release the debut album worldwide, and we were in Austin, TX performing at SXSW this last March. We get to make music and help people escape their worries, even if just for a few moments. It's the greatest job in the world and we wouldn't have it any other way. Especially right now with what we are gearing up for!

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

“Hubba Hubba" is an older expression for when you find someone attractive. It is a throwback to our childhoods and the times we grew up in, it is a throwback to the innocence of when attraction first started to develop, and it is fun as hell to say. We were originally batting a few different ideas - "Rafiki Said" was one of our top contenders. In the Lion King, the character Rafiki states, "It is time." And we felt like that spoke to what we were diving into in the beginning. Hubba Hubba just felt right.

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

We are based out of Billings, MT. The music scene, and art scene as a whole, has blown up exponentially over the last five years. The local communities have really warmed up to supporting local art and what it can give back. Some of our favorite locals are Arterial Drive, In Rapture, Dead Presleys, Shores of Leine, Not Your Boyfriend’s Band. We have a lot cooking at home base!

4. How would you describe your style?

Umami. It is a little bit of errrthang. The first record ended up having a lot more angst  than we intended or initially set out for, but speaks volumes to where we were in our personal lives at the time. The most recent ones we’ve been cooking up are a much groovier, dance-driven, feel-good collection of tunes in comparison.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

We have released the debut album, "Phunqi Haught Suhqet" (pronounced Funky Hot Suck It) worldwide on all streaming platforms. We have also released a feature music video for our single, "Thirsty!" on YouTube with the local roller derby team The Magic City Rollers. We had an absolute blast with that one! It was shot at the very beginning of the #MeToo movement and we wanted to find a way to show where we stood. We support strong women and the power they possess, and their right to have control over their own narrative. What better way to display that without getting political than to shoot a video of men trying to infiltrate a woman's world and in turn these men get their asses kicked? Someone diving into the first record should expect a roller coaster good time! It is dance-able and angsty, sexy and go-go-go. A really nice distraction from the world we are in currently. Someone picking us up with the new project should expect to dance, smile, and enjoying some serious love and its making.

6. Do you have any new music in the works?

See above. Hahaha We have been hard at work inside the Hubba Hut working on not only the new music, but all the goodies to go along with it. To say this is the most exciting venture of our entire run as a band would not be saying enough. We cannot wait to show you all!!

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

At the moment, we are enjoying time off the road and at home with our loved ones. That is not to say though that we are not eager to get back on the road. I think the touring bug brings an itch that continuously needs scratched from time to time, if not most of the time. So stay tuned!

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

The same thing we do every night...try to take over the world. (Narf)

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?

You can find us on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, Google Play, CD Baby, Facebook @HubbaHubbaMTMusic, Instagram and Twitter @HubbaHubbaMusic, on YouTube by searching "Hubba Hubba Phunqi Haught Suhqet" and on our website, www.hubbahubbamtmusic.wixsite.com/hubba.

10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time? -

That this is for you and meant for your escape from whatever negativity or struggle you might be facing. To smile and relinquish the fear of being yourself. To have fun and remember all things to come pass in due time. Love.
