Welcome

Funk Knuf is “2 % Jazz . . . and 98% Funky Stuff!!” (Maceo Parker)
 
FUNK KNUF (funk enough) is Colorado’s funk experience. They play fun, solid funk music with a horn section full of monster players, backed by a solid- groovin' rhythm section, and delivered by the strong vocals of Jill Watkins

Funk Knuf will bring you music from Brand New Heavies, to Liquid Soul, and Jaco Pastorious to Lettuce. You’ll hear Galactic, King Hector, and some Greyboy All Stars. Each song is selected with care. What Funk Knuf brings to their shows won’t be on your radio when you arrive.
 
Each member of Funk Knuf is an ultra-talented and versatile musician. The shared experiences of each runs the gamut of musical experience from International Jazz festivals to playing at Red Rocks.
 
Funk Knuf plays music that will move your body parts! Guaranteed.

"I just have to say that this band exceeds all expectations on delivering a great Funk, R&B and blues sound that is 100% thorough bred dance music. Why...because they are all hot musicians, Jill has pipes that can blow the roof off and they have a 3 piece horn section. There are Few things that I love more in life than a bad ass horn section that owns the grooves and can solo like its pay day! And they have it. i Hype not. Come on down. Cool big bands are an endangered species in our age of digital streaming and we should support them and we’ll be the happier for it. Cheers!" - Suter Du Bose, President, Caffe Sole

"y'all absolutely blew me away! What a thrill to hear such consummate musicians right here at home. I had a huge grin on my face the whole time. You are a great band." - Clay Kirkland

"All I'm a say here is that FUNK KNUF is one of the tightest, bestest, most powerful "on it" bands I've heard in a long time ... not enough superlatives to truly describe how good they are from top to bottom, front to back and everything in between
If you've never listened or seen this band, do so as soon as you get a chance, I promise you will NOT be disappointed ... but be prepared to move n groove, because with THIS band you have no choice but to feel it
Get your groove on with FUNK KNUF"  Wolf Bytes
