Ballerman Funk Band

Ballerman Funk Band

BandLatinFunk

Hybrid of Latin and Funk sounds with Jazzy overtones. Get's you on your feet and groovin' like there's no tomorrow.

Biography

Founders Myk Baldridge (Durham, NC) and Galen Bremer (Lynchburg, VA) met in the dorms of UNC Asheville. They've been funkin' their way around WNC ever since. Their mix of Latin, Funk, and Jazz with other hybrid sounds is reminiscent of the cool jazz and be-bop eras. The show these guys put on kicks ass and gets people up and movin'. We never fail to bring a crowd and have never left a show with guests unhappy. Best of all we bring a great attitude, and a willingness to work our asses off.
