In the vanguard of the new-funk movement, KUNG FU is quickly popularizing their unique sonic contribution "NU-SION", blurring the line between intense electro-fusion, and blistering dance arrangements. Making funk fusion music "cool" again, the band draws on influences such as early Headhunters, Weather Report, & Mahavishnu Orchestra, and merges those ideas with technical fireworks and a contemporary EDM informed sensibility. The ensemble, a seasoned pedigree that reads like a late-night summer festival all-star jam has been described by critics and fans of Galactic & Umphrey's McGee alike as "lethal funk", "explosive", "jaw dropping", and "musically mesmerizing". For the uninitiated, the experience is typically shocking yet the focus is simple: ENTER THE DRAGON!
Frisco Funk Collective
Frisco Funk Collective
The Frisco Funk Collective is comprised of some of the best young musicians Summit County has to offer. Lead by bass player Tyler Easton, the power quartet burst onto the local scene in November of 2015. Up front is Sean O'Connor on alto sax, dubbed the pied piper of Main Street Sean is un-doubtedly the voice and presence of the Collective. Adam "Taco" Weidner can often be found on percussion and Jake Wolf on drums. The spirit of the collective keeps a miriad of different musicians rotating through the line-up.
The concept of the collective stemmed from a series of start and stop projects with varying members of the current arrangement. The goal was to bring the best of each instrument we could and play charts that dug deep into the new-funk movement while also paying homage to the roots of funk. Expect styles ranging from Lettuce and Daft Punk to Weather Report, Herbie and The Meters. The Collective has built momentum through their friends, fans, coworkers and band mates which can be seen at a venue near soon!
