**FUNKY SPUDS**
 ("A Super Funky Brass Rockin' Band")
First Tuesday of EVERY MONTH!!


Funky Spuds is a funk band with something to prove. Created to demonstrate the possibilities of brass, Funky Spuds crafts performances to maximize funkiness; from the extended techniques of the sousaphone, to the dynamic soloing displayed by the band's veteran leader on both saxophone and guitar.

Collectively members of Funky Spuds have played with Levon Helm, Bob Dylan, Zigaboo Modeliste, Jazz Mafia, and The Purple Ones, to name a few. Bandleader and founder, Shane Cox, creatively expands the traditional use of tuba using harmony, beatboxing, improvisation, and more. Saxophonist and guitarist Paul Branin fronts the band adding unique jazz and rock elements


*THE FELL SWOOP*

The Fell Swoop is a San Francisco based 7-piece that gets audiences dancing by blending tight and funky rhythms, blazing horn lines, and soaring vocals into tasty pop music. Originally formed in 2015, the band is currently fronted by Mark Wendel, a sequin clad, soulful and sweaty Baltimore native who joined in the summer 2017.

When not playing traditional venues, the band is often found busking on the streets of SF. Powered by battery amps and a suitcase drum kit, they've been known to create dance parties right on the sidewalks of the Mission district.  

As of mid 2018, The Fell Swoop has released three singles in the style of 70’s disco, pop and soul. Fueled by this release, the band took their music on the road to 2018's SXSW festival in Austin, and plans on releasing an EP in the coming months.

Come on Now.. com'n get it! FUNKY SPUDS for 'da people every time. 

    Funky Spuds is a sousaphone-fronted funk band from San Francisco. After meeting in a New Orleans style brass band, Paul and Shane created Funky Spuds to break down the connotations of “brass band music,” and to push the limits of what their instruments can do. The blasting sounds of the sousaphone (played by Shane Cox) cover funky bass lines from Motown to James Brown. The unique dual talented Paul Branin musically leads the band as a veteran of the bay area. He wails on the saxophone, displaying influence from Michael Brecker and John Coltrane, until he picks up the guitar and dives right into the psychedelic sounds of Hendrix.
