Funk You is a musical manifestation of nine kindred spirits from an east Georgia city. Motivated by a love of live performance and armed with a captivating sonic presence, the band places a healthy helping of soul atop a funky backbeat. The nonet, featuring 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), combines modern musical sensibilities with the last vestiges of the chitlin circuit, resulting in an ever-evolving sound that continues to draw crowds nationwide.
Ten years on the road is no easy undertaking for any musical outfit, much less a group anchored by a group of childhood friends. As Funk You plans to dive into what comes next – they invite friends and fans alike to enjoy their newest musical offering, Moving Forward.
