Funkle Fester


Rumor Control

Don't worry, Funkle Fester is NOT disbanding.  In fact, they are preparing to record their first album and organizing a summer tour.  Reid (percussionist) unfortunately, is moving to California in February...he will be missed.


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.
