The Funk of Forty Thousand Years
Formed on August 1st 2007 and we were the funk version of spinal tap having several drummers spontaneously combust. A few months of lineup changes and we were off and running as a 4 piece and a team that believed in my vision. I believed the scene wanted more organic funk featuring crisp arrangements and sections to highlight each members musicianship. One thing we do not feature is guitar. Everyone else solos equally and it defines our sound. We perform mainly in the Detroit/Lansing area of Michigan and will be touring in 2009.
