Funke and the Two Tone Baby is a one-man phenomenon that mixes folky singalong anthems with blistering blues riffs, juxtaposed with fat bass, big beats and sub kicks. A frenzied amalgamation of organic and electronic that defies all preconception.
Born from festivals and knocking on the door of 1,000 shows, F&TTTB has wowed audiences from Glastonbury to Sziget, WOMAD to Boomtown and Alexandra Palace to a Bahraini Princes’ private studio.
He has secured support tours and shows with Dutty Moonshine Big Band, Comet is Coming, Beans on Toast, Hazel O’ Connor, Ferocious Dog, Hayseed Dixie, Skinny Lister, Mark Chadwick (Levellers) and many more.
A lo-fi peach with orchestral depth, a DJ without decks and a blur to the eyes, Funke generates huge sounds from seemingly nothing and sweeps up audiences in an awestruck wave of power, energy and sweat. A truly unique act that needs to be seen to be believed.
“The one-man busker armed with a battered acoustic guitar and a bank of electronics is cranking up a holy roller groove and the audience is going wild… Huge compulsive electronic funk grooves blast out from the digital and mesh perfectly with the acoustic-driven neo busking anthems.” John Robb, Louder Than War
“You will hear the raw flood of power coming from each song but what you need to pinch yourself to remember is that it all stems from the fingertips of just one man” – Artree
