Stanky Live Jams:  Recorded and Released Winter 2014 at The University of Hartford

Wanting More:  Recorded and Released Spring 2014 at The University of Hartford



John E Funk & The Skunks are a four-piece funk rock band currently spreading their stanky jams throughout Boston, MA. John E Funk (guitar, vocals), Jameson Walsh (bass), and Mike Azar (drums) first got together as students at the University of Hartford, and soon after moving to Boston post-grad, they found Gabe Rothman (trombone) in the most heavenly Cragislist match of all time. Their sound draws from diverse influences, including The Arctic Monkeys, Silversun Pickups, James Brown, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, creating an irresistible combination of high-energy, groovy rock n’ roll. The group’s fiery attitude shines most in live performances, and the boys perform regularly in bars and clubs, including an opening slot for Reel Big Fish and Bad Rabbits in Hartford, CT and a packed headlining performance at the Boston Hard Rock Café. Praise has flowed freely every time they hit the stage, including reputable sources such as Mike’s Dad, who said “You guys sound really great”, Jameson’s Mom, who said “I’m buying everyone drinks!”, and Kristin Wiig, who said “I, Kristin Wiig, yes it’s really me, do hereby endorse John E Funk & The Skunks as a badass rock n’ roll band”. With two live studio albums already available and an EP scheduled for a Spring ‘16 release, The Skunks are constantly writing new original music, pushing themselves to incorporate more diverse styles and get funkier, groovier, and stankier.
