Have you been missing something full-bodied and fresh with all the funk of the fair? Say Heyyyyoooo....Cinco De Mayo....solo hay un Cinco De MAYYYYYyyyoOOOOOhhhh....#funkyfunfriday #LOUDITUP #holymole
Combining the polish of Top 40 with the smooth feeling of 60’s soul and the raw groove of 70’s funk, Phat Phunktion is a nine-piece horn-driven tour-de-force that embodies the electricity of Tower of Power, Chicago, The Meters, Parliament, and Earth Wind & Fire. The band's undeniable chemistry hits its stride with the rump-shakin' boogie of "Don't Destroy the Funk," as the nonet gleefully unleashes six minutes of horn heaven. “Live at the High Noon" is set for release on June 2.
