Many thanks to our brother Phraydoe Peans for once again bringing funkUs into the fold for another smashing good time! Smashington is one of Orlando’s most diverse festivals and we’re always psyched to hang with phamily.  Shout out to Chris Cracklackle for stepping up and jamming out with us and kudos to the ever-talented AJ Hége for catching this awesome pic!

One song for Ralph. Okay, two…

Posted by on Feb 22, 2015

Ralphfest 4, 2015 – funkUs once again celebrated the life of Ralph Ameduri, Orlando musician and great friend of ours and to so many in our scene, at what has become one of Orlando’s best local music showcases as we all gather in honor of our tragically departed colleague.  For Ralph this year, we decided to play one song… in 20 minutes.  He would’ve loved it.  (He would’ve also have loved the fact that we started 5 minutes early and ended up with 5 minutes left so we snuck in a second song.)  RIP, Ralph.  You are still missed and will forever be. Kudos to Jeff Sweat for keeping this amazing event and scholarship founded in Ralph’s name alive. Photo by Emily Mann: Photos by Jim Leatherman: Share...
