Funkiphino “is quite possibly the hardest working band in the country! The energy and charisma… it’s infectious!”
The popularity of the group has skyrocketed. It’s no surprise that their abilities and excellent reputation have garnered accolades and secured their celebrity status as the go-to group for crème de la crème fundraisers and corporate events, as well as socialite weddings and parties. “If you’re lucky enough to get on their schedule, you’re guaranteed a great time.” The group stays busy keeping up with the ever-growing demand for performance dates.
With each member of the group hand picked for talent, intellect and ability to entertain, the 12 members are a true super-group. Like signing all of the best players for a sports team, Funkiphino is comprised of only A-list talent. Each Funkiphino performance requires all players to be performing at the best of their abilities. Therefore, the stage is not populated from a “pool” of musicians. The group is a legitimate band of actual members, all priding themselves on each fabulous performance.
If you're lucky enough to get on their schedule, you're guaranteed a great time.
Whether performing for the President of the United States in Washington, for major sports franchises, for VIP parties catering to Hollywood elite, or for socialite brides across the country, Funkiphino is the hugely popular, in-demand horn band that has the energy and talent to bring a party to life. The 12 members of the high-energy funk band infuse explosive horn lines, old-school Hammond organ sounds, and pumpin’ bass with their intoxicating vocals and slammin’ harmonies.
In 2005, Funkiphino was the band of choice for the 55th Presidential Inaugural Ball in Washington, DC. The band’s excellence has earned them nominations and has been named Best Funk Band from Westword Magazine and Marquee Magazine, as well as being the “go-to” band for the Denver Broncos Association, numerous government officials and the Rocky Mountain Region’s biggest charity organizations.
