Funk Filharmonik

Funk Filharmonik

Funk Filharmonik's big, fat, fiery horn sound and chunky rhythmic vibe has
become a magnet for musicians and music lovers of all stripes. From jazz
hipsters to rockin' bikers, students to teachers, youngsters to oldsters, fans of
jazz, funk, soul, R & B, listeners, dancers ... and basically anyone who is in need
of a "Soul Vaccination." 
     In it’s 27th year the band features some of New York's hottest and most in
demand players including three Tower of Power Alumni. Collectively, they've
recorded and performed with icons of popular music including Ray Charles, Billy
Joel, Paul Simon, Celine Dion, Stevie Wonder, Diana Ross, Janet Jackson, Aretha
Franklin, Mariah Carey, The Allman Brothers, The Original Blues Brothers Band,
John Mayer and so many more.  Many of these guys have played with jazz and
Latin giants including Tito Puente, Freddie Hubbard, Marc Anthony, Lionel
Hampton, Jennifer Lopez, the Brecker Brothers and a stellar list of others that
goes on forever.  Their talents have added to countless TV shows, Movie
soundtracks, Broadway shows and commercial jingles.  At any given moment
these guys might be off as a band, a horn section, or individual players in the far
corners of the world playing in such diverse settings as Presidential
inaugurations, midnight sun concerts in Sweden's Arctic Circle or spiritual drum
and dance ceremonies in Ghana, West Africa.  The Band also prides itself in the
many benefits they and their loyal following of funksters have supported for
humanitarian and environmental causes.
     It's really the band's Manhattan and Long Island gigs that have become
something of local legend. So be sure to check out their web site at, sign their e-mail list at and
catch them at one of their shows...
