Bio

Imagine a new modern sound that brings influences from funk bands like Rick James, Boosty Collins, Prince, SOS Band, and then take that same sound and pair them with a fresh group of musicians that have actually toured, played with and opened for artist like Toto, Prince, Babyface, Chris Brown, Patti Labelle to name a few ... 

The band is Loud as Funk

Loud as Funk was birthed to the world as a cover band that holds a weekly residency in Los Angeles, formed in 2015 by Drummer Reggie Regg Johnson (DC), the band consist of 5 members Myra Washington (Vocals, Houston), Yuki Hayashi (Bass,Tokyo), Ariel Mann (Guitar, Israel), and Xavier Taplin (Keys,Tulsa). By working together diligently throughout numerous venues and countless stages in and out of Los Angeles Loud as Funk has created a well rounded sound that is nostalgic but new, danceable and funky. 

By bringing together music lovers and fulfilling the need for funk and dance music, Loud as Funk has made the transition from a Los Angeles Based Cover band to Indie Artist.   

A rapidly growing fanbase have encouraged the idea to complete an album. With this  sound becoming infectious, it has have invited new opportunities for touring overseas to Japan and Europe.  

With the current release of the single "Summer Everyday" Loud as Funk plans to release the official EP in the spring of 2020.
