Happy 2013 from Ivan "Funkboy" Bodley!
2012 Year-in-Review Funkboy stats:
2012 was my
personal best income year to date! It was my 17th year without a day job.
I played 255 gigs & recordings, including 63 performances at “Rock
of Ages” and 20 performances at “Spider-Man” over to the Broad
Way in NYC.
I played with 57 acts, including 6 Rock & Roll Hall
I spent 48 nights on the road in 15 states and 5 countries.
I feel immensely fortunate, supremely humbled, and completely thankful to
be able to do what I do! My sincere thanks go to all of my professional colleagues for allowing
me to continue working in my chosen field.
above is definitely my favorite from 2012 and one of my all-time favorites! It's me working with Rock & Roll
Hall of famer Sam Moore, the original "Soul Man." This coming March will mark 10 years of being
Sam's bassist and Musical Director. This photo was taken last summer in Chicago
by my dear friend, Gil Ross.
everybody! I hope to see you all on down the road very soon....
