Funk You Set to Bring “Moving Forward” Tour to the Southeast

The world is moving forward in these strange times, and so is Funk You, with a continuation of their massive “Moving Forward Tour” in support of the band’s newest album of the same name. The 17-date winter tour will find the Georgia-based nonet taking a jaunt across the Southeast to bring their special brand of infectious, soul-infused, high-octane Southern funk to music-starved fans in Florida, Texas, Alabama, Arkansas, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

Released in September 21, Moving Forward is the band’s sixth studio release, a collection of heartfelt, dance-inducing tunes that were forged in the midst of pandemic-related delays and shutdowns. Recorded at Prana Recording Studio in Liburn, GA by Funk You drummer Will Clark and sound engineer Andy Headland, Moving Forward pushes the band into new sonic territories focusing on a rich studio sound. Listeners can expect Funk You’s signature party-igniting, high-energy funk driven by their dynamite rhythm section and brilliant horns while pulling back the curtain on the band’s full-court press into new musical adventures. Take a listen to Moving Forward’s title track below.

 

Made up of Gavin Hamilton (Lead Vocals), Evan Miller (Guitar), William Foster (Vocals, Keys), Will Clark (Vocals, Drums), Palmer Owens (Percussion), Mark “Earl” Dykes (Vocals, Bass), Gnarly G (Saxophone), Josh Spilliards (Trombone, Sousaphone), and Geoff Wood (Trumpet, Guitar), Funk You has spent a decade on the road touring relentlessly and building an enthusiastic following one fiery show at a time. Their live performances have been known to floor longtime fans and the uninitiated alike. They have appeared at some of the country’s most prestigious festivals including: SweetWater 420 Fest, The Peach Music Festival, Resonance Music and Arts Festival, Domefest, Summer Camp Music Festival and Suwannee Hulaween.
