"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
