Funkle Fester is an all-original, 7 and sometimes 8 or 9 piece, New Orleans style, funk-Jazz fusion jam band that really gets the crowd going.  We've been together since 2012 and have become a tight group of friends and musicians.  Imagine the melodic blast of the trumpet, the smooth harmony of a tenor saxophone, and some heavy poppin'-n-slappin' bass lines that are perfectly accompanied by clean, funky guitar riffs and searing organ solos.  Imagine all of this while our 7 piece drum kit produces intricate back beats and an occasional drum solo all perfectly synced with a Tito Puente style timbale/conga player who takes the rhythmic groove to the next level.  Our fans enjoy this unique, cross-genre, full embodied musical experience and our venues enjoy the benefits of our growing and very lively fan base.

555. S. Washington Ave.

Funkle Fester will be returning to Titusville this year to headline on the main stage during Titusville's famous block party on Aug 12th.   Come out and enjoy the food, music, crafts, art, fashion show, and good times.
