I'm a big fan of this genre, as well as others, but right now I'm in a funk mood.

I'm going to try and give this video embedding thing a shot, bear with me.

We need the funk, gotta have the funk


And my new boy, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue. Hottest band I've ever seen live.

Gap Band is funky, and the video for You Dropped The Bomb On Me is gloriously gay. A+, would watch again.


Speaking of awesome videos, Atomic Dog says hi.

These guys. One of the better pure funk bands I've seen. Sucks that in this video you can't hear the piano. Because that cat rips.

I'm with you. And as a horn player, I always love the funk with a great brass line.

A friend of mine just turned me on to this tune. A little bit of an odd intro, skip to 0:40ish.

I'm not sure I'd call this strictly funk, but a great hornline, and a fucking fantastic arrangement of a George Gershwin classic from Porgy and Bess. Kind of a bossa nova/jazz/funk/scat gem.

Resurrecting this thread. Just heard about these guys. Phenomenal musicians. Here's their whole new album. Opening track is one of my favorites.
