Great mix of dance tunes, classics, disco, great favorites, New Orleans funk, R&B, rock, and reggae - with a funky twist!
Not your usual cover band -- PFB has musicians that improvise and we often play songs with a fresh and funky spin. Since 2011, PFB has been playing bars, clubs and events, from small venues to large Oktoberfest events for thousands of people! We love music, people, and events, and strive to have everyone happy at the show!
We have the best experience with Poppa Funk Band. They totally brought the funk to our Saturday Night Fever birthday party. We rented an event space in Manhattan, they arrived early to set up and played 4 sets through the night. The music was amazing, the band was so much fun - a great mix of respectful and pleasant but alway willing to draw a crowd and shout out the birthday girls. I would recommend them to anyone and hope to see them live again. They covered all the best songs, took request and rocked the house! The party would not have been anywhere as good without them!
Response from PoppaFunkBand:
It was our pleasure and honor to provide the disco and funk to your amazing party! Thank you for choosing us! Very nice to meet everyone there and your positive review is really appreciated. Looking forward to seeing you again soon! Love, Chris and the PFB Crew
What to Expect
PFB emulates the high energy funk of James Brown, the New Orleans Funk of the Neville Brothers, the soul of Stevie Wonder, disco funk vibes with Nile Rogers and CHIC, with nods to Blues Greats such as Freddie King and Eric Clapton. Expect to hear dance friendly songs that will make anyone want to dance!
PFB can then also dial it back for a more jazz and blues vibe. Expect great musicianship and fun improvisational moments, and encouragement for the crowd to participate and sing along!
The band has been active on the New York City cover band scene since 2011, playing clubs regularly in Greenwich Village, and more recently for hundreds of happy Oktoberfesters at many beer garden events.
This is a male and female dual-fronted cover band. Chris "CC Thane" on guitar and vocals has been a performer with NYC reggae legend Ossie Dellimore, and has previously been on the same bill as Majek Fashek and Damian Marley. Robin on vocals can be powerful like Aretha or Donna Summer, or laid back and jazzy like Corrine Bailey Rae.
The customer is always put first! We are very willing to work with you on your event no matter how small or large! Looking forward to working with you to make your event memorable and lots of fun!
