"An up-and-coming band with cult following in the Bay Area"

“An up-and-coming band with cult following in the Bay Area, Funkranomicon is appearing at the festival as a result
of a unique experiment in audience curation—our Facebook community chose it from a field of 6 finalists in late July
as being the best band to open for the Ohio Players.” - San Jose Jazz Fest 2011 website


"Funkranomicon destroys the square world with every sexy beat"

“Funkranomicon destroys the square world with every sexy beat. If the “Necronomicon” is a textbook on magic, then Funkranomicon is a textbook on getting people on the dance floor. And if loving funk is dabbling in the dark arts, then Funkranomicon is a warlock of the highest degree.” - DNA - Good Times Magazine (Santa Cruz)

Bio

From the Santa Cruz Mountains of California comes the modern Funk band Funkranomicon (funk-rä-näm-e-kon). The band was becoming a big name in the Bay Area circa the year 2001, when the members all went their separate ways. In 2009, singer and founding member Joe Neto got together with original drummer Tim Welch and reformed
the band with 4 new members, Jonathan Kessler on bass, Scott Polland on guitar and recently, Warren Paradise on keys and John Williams on backup vocals. The new lineup has come together with a funky vengeance and is quickly becoming a local favorite. Funkranomicon writes dynamic, high energy Funk and Soul music. The band recently played the main stage of the 2011 San Jose Jazz Summerfest where they opened for The Ohio Players.

Their new CD “Book of Funk” was released at the 2011 San Jose Jazz Summerfest and was produced by Milton Davis (Brandy, Neville Brothers, Dionne Farris, New Mastersounds). Band trivia - the band gets its name from “The Necronomicon”, a fictional book appearing in the
stories by horror novelist H. P. Lovecraft and his followers.
