T Bird & The Breaks
T Bird and the Breaks are one of those gangs of people who could have easily banded together to steal hubcaps or hustle you out of your last dollar in a game of street craps. Lucky for all involved, they chose to make music. With a broad range of influences that ranges from 70′s funk to revivalist soul, T Bird and The Breaks are bringing CHUNK Music to cities across America. The core of this band of musical miscreants consists of Tim Crane on vocals and piano and an unstoppable rhythm section consisting of longtime partner in crime Sammy Patlove on drums and Cody Furr on bass. Johnny “Too Bad” Allison on guitar and vocals adds the icing on the red velvet cake.
All Good Funk Alliance
When it comes to All Good Funk Alliance, always expect the unexpected. This spring AGFA is set to drop a new album with Fort Knox Recordings—a genre-spanning release featuring go-go drums, spaced-out synths and funky bass-lines. It marks a new direction for All Good Funk Alliance, and is somewhat of a departure from their signature sound, but fans needn’t stress—this is one duo that never leaves the funk behind.
The Funk Ark
The Funk Ark is the creation of Will Rast, the band’s composer, pianist, and spokesperson, fulfilling his lifelong desire of turning his soul over to The Funk. “I decided to become a musician in high school,” He Recalls. “I played my first gigs when I was 15, in bars and jazz clubs around Washington, DC.” Rast worked as a freelance jazz session player and made a name for himself as a stylistically versatile sideman with various R&B and world music artists. With The Funk Ark, he gets to play an amalgamation of all the sounds he loves with some of the best musicians in the DC area.
