Dear Event Planner, Entertainment Committee Chair, Party Organizer or Mom:
Professional, trustworthy, multi-talented, drug-free and most of all FUNKY, the Full Strength Funk Band (FSFB) and our Jazz Quartet are ready to bring infectious funk or jazz to your next party or event. Our 10-piece Full Strength Funk Band features a full horn section, Latin percussion section, male and female vocalists and tons of instrumentation. FSFB plays the best funk/soul/R&B/blues/jazz/rock from the Mills Brothers and Satchmo to Sharon Jones and Daft Punk. You'll hear songs from Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Al Green, Stevie Wonder, The Commodores, The Meters, The Isleys, War, Tito Puente, Santana, Robin Thicke and many more. Your guests will tap their feet, clap their hands, sing the songs they grew up with and best of all, dance! Everyone burns calories, guaranteed.
If you have a smaller party or engagement, or wish for playing through dinner or other social activities, then our Jazz Quartet has the answer for you. We can put together a smaller jazz combo for your event, for quiet jazz or raucous funk, and do it on a budget that will put a smile on your face.
We are passionate about the music we play. We bring great energy and stage presence. The horns bring their own dance moves and dance in the audience, while they play! Nobody on the bandstand will ever "phone-in" a tune. If you want your party to enjoy a memorable night of dancing, singing and funky fun, then the Full Strength Funk Band or the Jazz Quartet is your band.
If you have an important charity event, we automatically reduce our fees to decrease your event overhead. We consider this a service to the community we are in a great position to offer.
Let us bring the funk to your next event, party or gathering. You can view a recent video here: .
