Biography

Sci-fi funk collective Unidentified Funk Object is the brainchild of Greg “Dr G” Melchin, a mad funk scientist on a mission to get humanity in tune with the Cosmic Sound. UFO plays catchy, danceable space funk influenced by P-Funk, Jamiroquai, and a healthy dose of Bowie. The stage show includes sci-fi costumes, Dr G’s madcap stage presence, an explosive horn section, and the retro-futuristic theremin, backed by stone-cold funk grooves. 

After launching their first album Space Funk Party at the famous UFO site of Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia, Unidentified Funk Object have earned touring extensively throughout Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland, receiving nominations for Halifax’s Best R&B Band in The Coast newspaper and for Music Nova Scotia’s Urban Recording of the Year, and earning a placement in the internationally-released comedy The PHD Movie 2

When the time came to return to the studio, UFO sought to refine their sound to break out to a wider audience while maintaining their nerd cred and the feel of their high-energy live show. The result is Old School Future, a blast of relentlessly catchy sci-fi pop-funk perfect for a night of dancing or Dungeons & Dragons. Now based out of Toronto in order to bring the Cosmic Sound to a wider audience, Unidentified Funk Object is an out-of-this-world experience that’s not to be missed!
