May 19, 2014New Future


I wanted to share the news with everyone and today seems like a good time to do so. Our bassist Sean McLay will be leaving the group and New York in the near future. Sean has been absolutely one of my favorite bass players I have ever had the privilege of sharing the stage with. He is funk. I love funk. We have all been blessed to play with such an amazing musician/person. If you have a chance to catch some of his last shows with us please do because they will be special.

With that being said, we have special things happening. We will be dropping the new record soon and have shows lined up the rest of the summer with some very talented guests.

Catch Sean with FUNKNUT

This Saturday May 24th at Daisy Dukes for a FREE show
June 22nd at the Inn on Broadway as part of Jazz Fest
June 23rd Flour City Station
and 1 or 2 more sprinkled in there
