Funk Foundation.


You heard me; Funk.

Me and Robin headed out into the outer parts of West London, off the edge of the world to see ‘Funk Foundation’ because this is what they say about themselves;


Funk Foundation were formed with one purpose - to bring the wonderful groovy and sophisticated vibes of Soul Funk and Acid Jazz to the live music scene. We're a live 5 piece soul funk band with decades of experience playing, performing and loving the music of artists like Chic, Jamiroquai, The Brand New Heavies, Incognito, Jocelyn Brown and Chaka Khan.


Why Soul Funk & Acid Jazz? It's a musican's joy, featuring deep groove, sophisticated arrangements and soulful vocals, all permeated with rhythms, hooks and licks that cause people that love music to spontaneously combust with head nodding, helpless movement and shouts of choooon!


Whilst there's a good scene bubbling away in the big cities it's hard to find live bands out in the real world packing their setlists with music this classy. There's lots of brilliant acts covering rock, indie and party tunes but Funk Foundation serve a different, higher purpose: to make you move, to make you feel the bass, live the rhythm, lose yourself in lyrics and most of all, to bring alive our love for this genre and spread the groove far and wide.


They’re pretty good, a really great bass player which is the soul of a funk band, excellent lead and synth and two feisty vocalists.

We got a long list of fine soul covers all evening, we’d probably check them out again.
Here's Robyn, checkin' out the vibe;
