Just a Band is a Kenyan house/funk/disco band. Their music has explored various musical directions such as, but not limited to jazz, hip-hop, disco and electronica. In addition to writing, recording and engineering their music, the band creates their own music videos, packaging and promotional items and establishing a strong web and blog presence, referencing elements from virtual bands like Gorillaz and incorporating anime and animation, illustration and photography in their visual campaigns.
Their debut album Scratch to reveal was relatively successful. They released their second single 'Ha-He' on 17 March 2010, accompanied by a music video featuring a character known as, Makmende.
