Skunk Funk / Bio

Eclectic, funky and pure irie, Skunk Funk sprung up from the streets of Vallejo, California to bring every crowd they woo an inspiringly animated experience. A spellbinding fusion of Funk Punk/Reggae Ska, the festivities begin once word of mouth brings Skunk Funk to town.
Originally started by members Bobby “Bobo” Roses, Nick Rose and Aaron Schulman in 2009, the 3 established a sound beyond classification and the birth of a new wavelength in art and music. They jammed as much as they could before parting ways due to other endeavors. Now based in American Canyon with their new, current line-up, consisting of original member Bobo Mickey-T, Max G, Cuban-B, Nick Whitty, and Jimmy T their sound is as solid as it ever was. With Bobo spitting his scorching vocals, laying down vibrant yet heavy bass lines and funky madness you can never turn your head away. Cuban-B drives hard with his poetic emcee philosophies. The group is completed with the tribal, loud and heavily syncopated drum styling of Nick Whitmire and the soulful, metal-esque, shredding guitar and smooth vocals of Max G. In with the brass is Jimmy T (Saxophone) to help create the newest and brightest Skunk Funk melodies with flavors of Jazz, Ska and Funk all blended for consumption by many and all ears.
Currently, the six manifest a sound so distinctive and high energy it’s as if they are embracing the musical reincarnation and uprising. What remains to be seen is where they get their influences, which can range anywhere from Sublime, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Primus to Mac Dre, Fishbone or Chet Baker. What the band sees, feels and experiences, is also what the people who listen hear. In fact, they pay so much homage and reverence to their idols that SFS has become a force of their own. Slightly comedic and always in your face, these boys will fire up the crowd upon introduction.
They take pride in not only music as an entity but as a way to communicate to people of all creeds, religions, races, cultures and climates of all things seen righteous and equal. Skunk Funk will continue to strive for the better days through art and greater existence. Enjoy life! Stay Positive! Much Respect to all of Humanity!
