About Booking Funk Bands

Funk Music is distinctive in that it produces a powerful groove by using strong bass guitar riffs and bass lines. Funk Music originally derived from Motown Records, which put bassists in the limelight in many recordings. Funk songs typically use basslines as the center, making for great dance music at events of all types. Notable funk bassists include Louis Johnson, Anthony Jackson, and Larry Graham of Sly & the Family Stone. Hire a Funk Band and get your guests groovin' at any event!

Some things to consider when hiring a Funk Band are to make sure you listen to audio and watch video clips. This will ensure that you truly do book the best for your next event! Next, you want to get references. Talk to people in the area about the group and get feedback. Finally, get a contract. Many professional Funk Bands require a deposit to secure them at your next event. Make sure to read through the contract carefully before contracting the group for your party.
