It was lovely to meet you last night at The Lifeboat. As discussed, please find below a list that is up-to-date as of today for Funke and the Two Tone Baby. I've also included a short biography and link for streaming of his discography.
Please do let me know if you would like images / video embed codes etc., and I'll be more than happy to forward them over.
Hope to bump into you at Sweeps Festival, if not before.
Funke and the Two Tone Baby - Biography:
A one man, psychedelic, blues-based, loop-induced musical
journey. He will give you dat Harp Boy and you'll be blown away!
Funke and the Two Tone Baby performs original material as well as the occasional cover from the old and new blues scene with a Funke twist - a unique blend of overlayed and looped guitar, stompbox and harmonica; sometimes spine-tingling, sometimes heart-wrenching, but always awesome!
Funke is a unique act and has been reported in local and online media as being 'like a magician pulling props from a trunk to create some incredible sounds'. Through borrowing inspiration and influence from traditional blues, Funke and the Two Tone Baby is a stompboxing, beatboxing, loop-induced contemporary bluesman for the 21st century.
Although still reliant on the traditional, Funke presents a modern technological twist to engage blues fans old and new.
Always gaining recognition, and often admiration, for his power and passion - this is one artist not to miss!
