Kent-based mechanical alt-blues band Funke and the Two Tone Baby is the pseudonym of multi-instrumentalist Dan Turnbull. Described as creating ‘new, exciting and innovative music’ (R2 Magazine), in two years Funke has gone from pub gigs in Margate to performing 300+ shows and festivals across the UK and Europe.
Combining effects pedals, beatboxing and grooving bass lines with traditional instrumentation, powerful vocals and relentless energy that provides tracks with a ‘distinctive and contemporary twist’ (Artree Magazine) and gets people ‘grooving like an apoplectic orang-utan’ (Sound of Confusion).
Funke has appeared on Absolute Radio and has played as main support for Bob Log III, Hobo Jones and the Junkyard Dogs, Treetop Flyers, Hazel O’Connor, Babar Luck, 3 Daft Monkeys, Eddie Spaghetti and TV Smith, alongside performing as a headline act at venues and festival stages throughout the UK.
