Biography


The soulful sounds of Fungus Amungus have been spreading like wildfire throughout the jam/funk scene in the northeast. These seven funky brothers hail from Providence, RI, where they have been dropping the funk since the summer of 2002. From performing at festivals such as Gathering of the Vibes and Camp Creek to sharing the stage with the likes of Parliament Funkadelic, Les Claypool, Max Creek, the Spin Doctors, the Violent Femmes and the Bomb Squad, Fungus Amungus has been setting the pace for live music in southern New England.

For two consecutive years, Fungus Amungus was selected “Best Jam Band” in New England by the Providence Phoenix. Also, in 2005, the Fungus was selected to be a finalist in WBRU’s annual RockHunt. Their sound is an eclectic mix of funk, soul, reggae, groove and a hint of Irish whiskey. In the winter of 2004, their first full-length CD was introduced to the public: “All Banged Up”. Since that time, the band has been mastering the art of the live show, with one highlight being a 7-hour performance at Wormtown’s StrangeCreek festival.

With a hunger for bringing up the live music scene in New England, Fungus Amungus intends to stick around and throw down some dirty funk for years to come.
