Kent-based mechanical alt-blues band Funke & the Two Tone Baby is the pseudonym of multi-instrumentalist Dan Turnbull. Described as creating ‘new, exciting and innovative music’ (R2 Magazine), in two years Funke has gone from pub gigs in Margate to performing 300+ shows and festivals across the UK and Europe.
Combining effects pedals, beatboxing and grooving bass lines with traditional instrumentation, powerful vocals and relentless energy that provides tracks with a ‘distinctive and contemporary twist’ and gets people ‘grooving like an apoplectic orang-utan’ (Sound of Confusion).
And… Funke has supported Hazel O’Connor! Lucky bastard!
