Funksoulnation

The South Coast's Premier Funk and Soul Covers Band

A Brief History:

Like all good ideas, the concept for the band was formed over a couple of beers in mid 2012 between fellow musicians David Lindfield (Drums) and Mark Lawson (Bass Guitar) who shared a mutual passion for rhythmically orientated Funk and Soul music with locked in grooves from artists such as Jamiroquai, Stevie Wonder and Brand New Heavies.

 

Both agreed the tracks would have to be fun to play, musically challenging and appeal to an audience looking for a new, fresh and exciting alternative to the usual cover band genre and setlists. Several phonecalls and email exchanges later, "Funksoulnation" was officially born on 19th Sept 2012 in yet another Worthing Pub. David and Mark were joined there by fellow local experienced and very talented musicians Paul Linale (Guitar), Mike Corrigan (Keyboard), Jonathan Lindfield (Saxophone) and Jane Golds (Vocals).

 

Many rehersals later, "Funksoulnation" finally emerged from the studio for its first public performance on 22nd June 2013 at the Loxwood Music and Beer Festival to a rapturous reception from an immensely appreciative crowd. The die had been cast! Several performances later, the bands vocals were enhanced by the inclusion of the the incredibly talented Bev Corrigan and Nikki Gerrard.

 

Since these early beginnings, Funksoulnation has gone from strength to strength, playing at a host of prestigious functions and regular local venues and has built a loyal following of what we like to call our "Funk Buddies".

 

We hope you enjoy what we do..............
