Description:
funkUs is one of Orlando's most prolific and enduring bands. Their charismatic stage show and unique blend of musical genres, (dubbed "flavor rock" by the Orlando Weekly and declared "a guilty pleasure" by OW music critic, Jason Ferguson), have earned them a loyal following since their inception in 1998. They perform regularly in the Central Florida area at music venues and festivals from coast to coast. Toni Brown, former publisher/editor of Relix Magazine, writes: "funkUs fits neatly into the eclectic jamband musical melting pot. The band possesses powerful blues leanings and intense R&B and funk rhythms. With an emphasis on meaningful songwriting and freeform jam exploration, their songs range from quirky and catchy to emotionally moving. The combinations result in highly danceable, energetic grooves that reach dizzying, intoxicating highs or soothing, spiritual lows."


Band Members:
Dave "the cat" Mann - lead guitar, vocals; Adam Freeman - drums & percussion; Dave Whittaker - bass, vocals; Sharif Mekawy - keys, vocals
