We are an 8 piece hip hop and r&b fusion group that plays anything from temptations to blackstreet as well as originals.
One word I have to say off the bat, is WOW!!! These guys are what I've been looking for my whole life. Ive been listening to Barley Funktional for 8 months, and they blow my mind everytime I see them preform!! They keep me coming back for more. The music, they're passionate vocals, brilliant solos, and upbeat togetherness is soo invectious. I love that they include the audience and instrumentals are mesmerizing. I can go on, but one thing I could say is these guys are my favorite band by far to see live! I CANT WAIT TO SEE them again!
Listening to "barely functional" band was an awesome nite of fun, varied styles created a listen bonanza of fun-ness...
Barely Funktional was the main band that we had showcase our opening for a new line for HBC. They are a very good group of individual artists that come together and make beautiful music. Very professional and very entertaining! We plan on hiring them again!
