FUNKIPHINO

Nominated for: BEST Local Bands

FUNKIPHINO 2885 Wilderness Pl Boulder CO (303) 444-3865

Funkiphino is the hugely popular, in-demand, Colorado horn band. They've been called Colorado's best kept musical secret. The 12 members of the high energy funk bank infuse explosive horn lines, old-school Hammond organ sounds, pumpin' bass, with their intoxicating vocals and slammin' harmonies. Whether performing for the President of the United States in Washington, DC, for major sports franchises, for VIP parties catering to Hollywood elite, or for socialites across the country – Funkiphino is the band on the scene.

In 2005, Funkiphino was the band of choice for the 55th Presidential Inaugural Ball in Washington, DC. The band's excellence has earned them nominations and spots as Best Funk Band from Westword Magazine and Marquee Magazine as well as being the "go-to" band for the Denver Bronco Association and for numerous government officials.

Large public events, festivals and concerts have also solidified a legion of loyal fans. Crowds are drawn to the band, making them a popular concert and festival ticket. Funkiphino can be seen in Frontier's Wild Blue Yonder Magazine – Destination Weddings issue and on TV, featured on the Altitude Sports and Entertainment network, Fox Channel 31 and News 4.

Funkiphino also produces and performs original music. Choice musicianship as well as artful songwriting are equally prevalent on their two original CDs. The all-star members of Funkiphino have created a unique, intelligent, funk-injected musical niche. Lovin' Life, produced by Funkiphino and club music veteran Richard Dekkard (Paula Cole, Dido, Warner Brothers), and Rise Above, produced by Funkiphino and Grammy Award winner Matt Sondowski are both powerhouse compilations worthy of acclaim. The band has recorded at numerous venues including the legendary Skywalker Ranch (George Lucas' studio), in Marin, CA. The band collaborated with horn arranging great, Dave Eskridge, and was joined on their last CD, Rise Above, by Rocco Prestia and Doc Kupka of Tower of Power, Jennifer Batten, formerly Michael Jackson's lead guitar playe,r as well as members of the San Francisco Symphony and Opera.

Professional party planners choose Funkiphino time and time again to bring the high energy atmosphere that wows their demanding, high-profile clients. Funkiphino consistently performs for private events at prestigious venues including the Ritz Carlton, The Hyatt, The Lodge at Cordillera. That is also why corporate even planners for Crocs, Array BioPharma, Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials, Cochlear, and the Cancer Society repeatedly hire Funkiphino for their company meetings and gatherings.

“They're my favorite group. I have traveled all around the region to see these guys. They are amazing.” – May from Greeley

“I LOVE THIS BAND” - Pepe Gonzales from Denver

“I drive up from Colorado Springs if the're in Denver. They're funky and fun. I think they should be famous already. They're our best Colorado secret!” - Wendy from Colorado Springs

"Most events I go to, it takes the band a while to warm up the crowd. Not so with Funkiphino. People were on their feet ready to party/dance right when they started.” - Cindy Shaffer- Sullivan from Denver

“I first saw Funkiphino in Summit County. They're like superstars up there. I was psyched to get to know some of the members and to see how down to earth they are. I've been putting a lot of miles on my car lately just too catch their shows. Come out to Herb's in Denver. I love to see them there.” – Jen from Keystone

“They played GREAT music throughout the night ...they were very good at reading the crowd's energy to dictate the songs they would play next. EVERYONE was on their feet dancing and having a blast.” – Charlie from Denver
