Funk Punch

Hailing from Southwest Virginia and currently residing outside Roanoke at Goose Harbor, Funk Punch is a 4 piece instrumentation melding guitar, bass, synth, organic, and electronic drums with a few electro-surprises as well. Thriving off of the live performance with intimate crowds, Funk Punch plays a mix of covers and original music often combining the two into live mash-ups and original sets. Their musical influences stem from various genres like the classic psychedelic styles of bands such as Jethro Tull and Pink Floyd, to the infectious drive of The Talking Heads. Then, after stirring in a wide selection of hip hop and electronic music with many modern improv/jam acts of today, they create their own brand of Front Porch Jamtronica. This ferocious four includes; Chris “Chili” Eanes, Robby “Rubbs” Carden, Thomas “TJ” Young, and Robert “Slim” Prescott. Together, they’ve been playing shows since January 2011 but these guys have known each other for over 10 years.  Funk Punch is a caring bunch and love to help others with the power of music. They have played for such charities and causes like Virginia Autism Speaks, Josh McCoy Scholarship, Summit for Someone, and Feeding America Southwest Virginia. Also, they have shared the stage with great musicians like DJ Williams Projekt, Rubblebucket, Pimps of Joytime, Dangermuffin and Silo Effect.  So now you know…..It’s time to get the funk down at FpF 2013!
