Hot Funky News For You!
Part of Me
Bushy-tailed and blue-eyed energy bundle and pop soulstress Helena May meets powerhouse groove and instrumental funk outfit Redtenbacher’s Funkestra!
In 2016 Helena came to London sitting in with the Funkestra 606 Club regulars since 2006. They were jamming funk versions of much-loved pop songs – putting their own unalloyed, joyful Funk spin on them. The audience reaction was overwhelmingly enthusiastic prompting them to hop in the recording studio to record this album. Since May they’ve released six singles ahead of the ‘Part of Me’ album release
Brand-new releases, tales from the road, upcoming gigs and what’s on the drawing board for the spring? All in here in this August to October round up blog from Stefan’s adventures in Funkland.
Traditionally Mid-June to Mid-July is wonderfully full on and this year has been no exception. After the whole GDPR ‘marlarky’ I’m writing to you, a much smaller group of subscribers to my ‘adventures in funk land’ newsletter. For those of you who decided to opt back in I hope you’ll find my adventure enticing enough to stay on and read about what I’m up to. Thank you for your continued support and interest!
Totally excited to release our third single with vocalist Helena May. It was great fun to put our own spin onto Ed Sheeran’s mega hit ‘Shape of You’, originally inspired by TLC’s ‘No Scrubs’
