For some musicians, funk is where it’s at. It starts and ends with groove. Funk Engine is one such band.
Formed in early 2013, the four-piece jazz-funk band has been exciting audiences around Sydney and beyond combining funk grooves with jazz harmony and improvisation. 2014 saw the release of their first album and in 2017 they released their second album Taking a Ride collaborating with Sydney indigenous rapper DOBBY and an expanded horn section.
Funk Engine have held residencies in Sydney venues such as Lazybones lounge Mr. Falcons, The Townie, and many more. They have also played at several festivals including the Beats Music Festival at Peats Ridge (2013), Regrowth and the Sydney Women’s International Jazz Festival, (2017) and VIVID light festival in Sydney (2018). 2019 will see the release of their third album collaborating with legendary soul singer Pat Powell.
