Two-week old meatloaf, although it may be tasty, is probably hella-funky: eating it would be a bad move. Tasty and funky are two things that have never mixed well together...until now. The Funky Nunchucks blend tastiness with hella-funky jams, and put on a kickass show every time, guaranteed!

Biography

The Funky Nunchucks are Steve Antonelli, Joel Condon, and Pat McQuillan.

Formerly known as the Funknasty Lady Killaz, the Funky Nunchucks formed in October 2006. They played their first show, a battle of the bands, a mere three weeks later, performing a kickass set of covers and originals.

They won.

The Funky Nunchucks have been rehearsing and playing shows ever since. They recorded a two song EP, samples of which are currently posted. (For full versions of the songs and other miscellaneous sounds, visit www.funkynunchucks.com)

How would one describe the Nunchuck's music? There are clearly elements of rock, funk, jazz and hip-hop, but the Nunchuck's unique sound encapsulates a much broader range of musical genres than simply the foregoing examples.

More specifically, each member of the band has his own list of personal influences, both musicians and musical groups.

Steve: Chad Smith, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kris Myers, Umphrey's McGee, Tool, Frank Zappa, Carter Beauford, Dave Weckl, Miles Davis, Blackstar, Brad Wilk, The Roots

Joel: Flea, Jaco Pastorius, John Paul Jones, Les Claypool, Dirk Lance, Leonard "Hub" Hubbard; RHCP, P-Funk & its affiliates

Pato: Jaco Pastorius, Jimi Hendrix, Miles Davis and company, Red Hot Chili Peppers, John Frusciante

It is not a far stretch to say that the Funky Nunchuck's music is, in part, a manifestation of these influences.

The Funky Nunchucks also strongly beleive in the importance of voicing your opinions, and do so through writing, art, and of course music.
