The best kept secret in music

Press


What has velvet stripes, a horn section, and more funk than a post-game locker room? You know I'm just talkin' about FUNKENGRUVEN. Northern California's favorite party band takes its fashion cues from Superfly and its ever-rotating song list from the flyest funk and soul acts to shape the Nixon-era music scene. The band's official mission is "the preservation of classis American soul, funk, and R&B music from the 1970's". To that end, FUNKENGRUVEN has devoted uncountable hours to the recreation of hits by artists from Wild Cherry to Chaka Khan to James Brown. As long as they keep feeding the Disco Inferno, the booties of Sacramento will never stop shaking! - Sacramento News & Review (Vol. 13, #51)

Bio

Flashback to a time of bell bottom pants, polyester shirts and platform shoes with this three time Sacramento Area Music Award (Sammie) winner and
“Hall Of Fame” 2002 inductee. Experience the fun and excitement of being taken on a musical journey while dancing to the hits of Al Green, Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin, Earth Wind And Fire, and many more of your favorite '70's R&B/Funk/Soul artists. Over the years this Sacramento based operation has become very popular in Reno and the Bay Area alike and they continue to expand their fan support by taking their act on the road, visiting such far off places as Mexico and the Bahamas. Loaded with talent and aiming for fun, Funkengruven is a party just waiting to happen!
