The Funky Knuckles
The inevitable result of a talent-soaked soul and jazz community, The Funky Knuckles are taking the sound of Dallas to an entirely different level. They have been together for six years and have played on stages across the U.S and around the world. The band is comprised of musicians and producers who have worked with some of the most respected acts in the music industry (Beyonce, Erykah Badu, Marcus Miller, Stanley Clarke, Talib Kweli, Chris Dave, The Polyphonic Spree, etc.), yet possess a sound distinctly separate from any of their individual projects.
The Funky Knuckles move together musically as a school of fish, never complacent and always stretching the boundaries of improvisation and composition. Whether performing original music or standards, they draw from each member's musical experiences to create their unique genre-bending sound. They are currently touring internationally and working on new music for their 4th album.
Their second album "Meta-Musica" held the #1 position on the iTunes jazz charts for over a week. They played for sold out audiences across Europe in April 2016 on their first tour overseas.
Acid Cats has been continuing to play and generate buzz since they stepped in the NE Ohio music scene. New material is being written and recorded through the fall, but you can look for "Crosby Street " and "All In a Day's Work" on bandcamp.com
The band is continuing to look for opportunities to grow and play to new audiences as their musical adventure continues.
Acid Cats is an energetic quintet that sets syncopated melodies on top of driving grooves to make you stand up and move! An installment of instrumental madness piecing together Funk, Jazz, Latin, Rock, and Soul into a fierce Fusion of our musical influences. Acid Cats has been hard at work on some brand new recordings and would love to share this new music with you live!!
