Skunk Funk's Story
Funky, Punky and Intergalactic: Skunk Funk traveled from the dystopian planet of Esoterra only to crash land onto a small suburb in American Canyon, CA. In orbit or on Earth, it is their sole mission to bring every crowd they woo an animated yet uplifting and off the wall experience. A spellbinding fusion of Punk/Funk/Ska is their medium of choice in their battle against degradation and lameness.
There is 4 distinct pieces to this blue print, it didn't happen by accident. Tides were shifted and stars rearranged to unite these 4 cosmic misfits:
Bobby "Bobo the Sequel" Roses - Lead Vocals/Bass
Max "Billion Powers" Gee - Vocals/Guitar
Bryan "Cuban-B" Rose's - Vocals
Nick "Lt. Whitty" Whitmire - Drums/Vocals
Presently, the four manifest a sound so distinctive and high energy; they are a hot commodity anywhere they go. Over the course of the last 4 years, they have managed to independently release an EP entitled “Too Fresh to Function” and a full-length album entitled “Possession 4 Sale”. Most recently, they have released they're best work yet through their 2018 "Cirque Du Skank" EP, which also comes with music video. Their new full-length album, "Skunk Soup", is being served up 1/23/2021. They plan on recording and performing live in 2021, when it is safe to do so.
