Funk You Finish New Album, Schedule Tour
Funk You from Augusta GA are ready to blast out of this past year with a new album on the way (two singles already out) and a tour planned to celebrate their tenth anniversary beginning in Savannah April 16.
Title track “Space Monkey” from the new album and “Baby in a Bucket” are the two singles already released from Space Monkey, due out April 9. “Space Monkey” is the deep funk that Funk You is known for, firing on all cylinders. There is a mellower vibe to “Baby in a Bucket,” opening with solo guitar before the band enters. The groove is mid-tempo as Hamilton tells the story. They explode during a great and very different guitar break before they mellow out again.
FUNK YOU are: Gavin Hamilton, lead vocals; Evan Miller, guitar; William Foster, keyboards, vocals; Will Clark, drums, vocals; Palmer Owens, percussion; Mark ‘Earl’ Dykes, bass, vocals; Gnarly G, saxophone; Josh Spilliards, trombone, Sousaphone; and Geoff Wood, trumpet, guitar.
