Van Funk / Bio

Van Funk is a 4 piece blues/rock band with a huge sound out of Edmonton.
Think Inner-city country blues.
Founding members of Van Funk are Jordan Funk and Jessica Fedorek. A power duo who's chemistry has been building over the past 13+ years. Jordan's gritty riffs and lyrics fit perfectly with Jess's powerful voice and harmonica.
Though originally a duo, the two have morphed into quite the family band with Jess's dad Darrell Guay on bass and her sister's partner Stu Murland on drums.
Van Funk just released their debut album "13" and are currently on the road supporting the release.
The album was recorded live in studio with a select few songs adding overdubbed harmonica, guitar and keyboard. Van funk is known locally for their live shows and great sound and it was important to them that the record reflected that.
Recently listed at #62 for emergingindiebands.com New Year Ninety, Nominated for the 2014 Edmonton Music Awards for "Best Blues Recording" (Young Winds), Van Funk has kept busy playing numerous music festivals(Alberta's Own, The Works Art Fest, Alberta Beach Fest) & charity shows (Sirens, Band-Aid, Adamstock, Ronald McDonald house), and performing live on Breakfast Television, and touring in Alberta and B.C.
"Van Funk land themselves somewhere on the darker side of folk, the switchblades and chain side...This has led to the creation of
a music that speaks volumes with an un-cuddly Barbwire edge."
