It is a great pleasure to announce Funktional will be appearing at this years family festival in Lichfield, FUSE festival. We’ll be on the main stage from 11.45 onwards on Sunday 14th July. In the set we’re planning a selection of classic Funktional repertoire, original, groovy, lively, a mixture of jazz, blues, pop and funk, but adding some new tunes, including a lovely smooth summery version of La Vie en Rose, a funky Yellowjackets tune, a Till Brönner tune from his latest album, and a Donald Byrd tune to be confirmed! I can’t make my mind up which one to pick yet! Very much looking forward to the band returning to the festival.
The (exclusively midland)line up is:
Nick Dewhurst: Trumpet and Guitar
Sam Craig: Tenor Saxophone and Flute
Tom Lindsay: Piano and Vocals
Chris Langford: Bass Guitar
Matt Sellar: Drums
