John E. Funk and the Skunks
John E. Funk and the Skunks
John E Funk & The Skunks are a four-piece funk rock band currently spreading their stanky jams throughout Boston, MA. John E Funk (guitar, vocals), Jameson Walsh (bass), and Mike Azar (drums) first got together as students at the University of Hartford, and soon after moving to Boston post-grad, they found Gabe Rothman (trombone) in the most heavenly Cragislist match of all time. Their sound draws from diverse influences, including The Arctic Monkeys, Silversun Pickups, James Brown, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers, creating an irresistible combination of high-energy, groovy rock n’ roll. The group’s fiery attitude shines most in live performances, and the boys perform regularly in bars and clubs, including an opening slot for Reel Big Fish and Bad Rabbits in Hartford, CT and a packed headlining performance at the Boston Hard Rock Café. Praise has flowed freely every time they hit the stage, including reputable sources such as Mike’s Dad, who said “You guys sound really great”, Jameson’s Mom, who said “I’m buying everyone drinks!”, and Kristin Wiig, who said “I, Kristin Wiig, yes it’s really me, do hereby endorse John E Funk & The Skunks as a badass rock n’ roll band”. With two live studio albums already available and an EP scheduled for a Spring ‘16 release, The Skunks are constantly writing new original music, pushing themselves to incorporate more diverse styles and get funkier, groovier, and stankier.
Pyramid Thieves
Pyramid Thieves
Merging alternative roots with new wave grooves, Boston-based indie band, Pyramid Thieves, offers a fresh perspective on synth pop. Since becoming friends at the outset of high school, the four founding members have been playing and performing together in various permutations over the course of many years. Songwriter and frontman Joey Sawyer, drummer Josh Cornell, and bassist Nick Maloney recorded the recently released, self-titled EP as a three-piece. Shortly thereafter, guitarist Chris Bouchard joined the band to deliver even more intensity and ambience to songs and live performances. While focused on playing out the record, Pyramid Thieves is also writing new material with the intent to release an LP sometime in 2018.
