The best kept secret in music


"Protectors of the Queens Court"

In a city that has seen its share of trials and tribulations,Plainfield N.J. perhaps could be right up there with the worst of them.However this also is the place that has witnessed something lurking beneath its core that breeds the best that music and stage presence could possibly have to offer.The most recent purveyers are lacking in neither.FUNK-KIN could very well be just what the good Dr. Funkenstien has prescribed for this dying world to avoid its Funk-less death.This band of brothers seemingly have a connection on and off stage that allows them complete creative and musical freedom to do just whatever it is they feel the party calls for.The band features a fierce wailing guitar in some of the most unconventional compositions and still manages to give way to harmless pounding rythym section that seems to just grab hold of your feet and wont let go.With their most recent efforts focused on paying homage to a life-long mentor and deserving king of the Alternative hill.FUNK-KIN by no means will ever be pigeonhold to the sometimes overlooked genre of FUNK.Elder member and spokesperson for the group states"We have never just palyed any one particular style of music if we can happily marry Gospel to Folk then thats what we will do.Its really what GOD intended anyway for us all to Jam Together"
