FunkShua is a 6 piece high energy Jazz Fusion/Latin/Electronic Jam Band from Greenville SC. They have been together for 2 years and have a strong reputation in the Upstate, SC area. Their sets are completely improvised, frequently lasting over 2 hours, with any and all styles open to be woven into a hypnotic collage of sounds and feels. The members are veterans of many well-known SC jam and jazz bands, bringing a sophisticated and grooving intuition to their music. Along with strong instrumental skills, they add live looping of individual solos and group jams to the mix to bring a very modern and original flavor to their shows. Currently, FunkShua is in the studio at Sit and Spin Records, working on their first studio CD.
