"Athfest 2018 Club Crawl Highlights (listed as the #1 highlight)"

“ This trio’s performance had the perfect blend of jazz, R&B, and plenty of soul... their set was full of psychedelic guitar solos, falsetto scatting and even a surprise appearance from a didgeridoo... [Harvey Funkwalker] was able to quickly get the crowd swaying and toe tapping to their dynamic sound. The band’s ability to make such a soulful set also upbeat and fast paced is what kept most of the crowd into the group’s performance." - The Red & Black


"40 Watt"

"By the time Harvey Funkwalker took the stage, the crowd had definitely picked up. By 9:30 the original attendees had tripled to include crowds pushing tables out of the way to press against the stage. Growing enthusiasm can be attributed to the offbeat, funky and friendly set by Harvey Funkwalker which literally saw the musicians laughing through their set. For the most part devoid of lyrics but not of attitude, this group brought fun." - The Red & Black


"Next Best Thing"

"Harvey Funkwalker is the next best thing to come out of Athens... their impeccable talent challenges all expectations of a standard funk/jam band - they damn sure will have you groovin'" - Eric King, Nimbleslick Entertainment


"Fresh Taste"

"Harvey Funkwalker offers a fresh taste on the fusion of jazz, funk, and electronica that puts a new spin on the typical jam-band style. High energy shows involve strong performances from each of the three members who know how to take an Athenian sound and mix it up a little." - Jill Armitage, The Odyssey

Bio

Founded in 2015 in Athens GA, Harvey Funkwalker forges an effervescent fusion of funky dance grooves, gritty jazz, psychedelic rock, and progressive elements, tipping their hats to such acts as Lotus, Lettuce, Umphrey's McGee, and Snarky Puppy and Lettuce. 

Since then, the trio has performed consistently in the Athens area with little regard for stylistic conventions. Their high energy performances deliver shape-shifting whirlwinds of tireless grooves, catchy melodies, incessant experimentation and ever-evolving, earthy jams. The trio's dynamic elasticity, musical mastery and their ability to blend the lines between composition and improvisation set them apart from their peers and keep avid listeners wanting more.
