Thank you to all the Funkiphino fans who came out on Friday and Saturday to listen to the band perform with one of the greatest guitar players of our time.  Both shows were ridiculously fun - we were so proud to be sharing the stage with legendary guitar virtuoso - Jennifer Batten!  Jennifer is best known for her performances with Michael Jackson on all three of his world tours; Bad, Dangerous and HIStory.  She performed at Jackson's famous Superbowl half time show which aired to one and half billion people in 80 nations.  In 1998 she was asked to join Jeff Beck's band where she recorded two CD's - both supported by world tours.  The energy for both events was electric with people dancing in the streets and singing along.  A special thanks to Carlo Riley, a fabulous Michael Jackson impersonator, for joining us at the Saturday performance in Boulder.  His uncanny physical similarities cause even the most dedicated Michael Jackson fans to do a double-take!

Jennifer has authored two music books and released her third solo CD/DVD entitled “Whatever" where she’s ventured into electronica, vocal samples, and film.  Please check out her website to purchase "Whatever" it's a great CD/DVD showcasing her rare skill and creativity.
