“Marvelous Funkshun, had a very, very tough act to follow. How should they approach it? Of all the options you did consider, you most probably did NOT consider “Get Low” by Lil John and the East Side Boyz, done totally redneck country style. My head was turning like Linda Blair’s. Maybe we should make ourselves scarce for a wee bit if that is what’s going to happen. PSYCH! GOTCHA! They immediately made a u-turn and funked up “Shaky Ground,” which maneuvered its way into “We Want the Funk (Night of the Thumpasaurus Peoples).” It was red hot. Then they slowed things down with a slow, slinky take on “Hear My Train A-Comin’.” Psychedelic rock? They had that covered, too, thank you very much. They can come back to visit from Winston-Salem any time.”
“Powerful Southern Boogie”
“The Sunday finale is an especially good one with homegrown blues-rock quintet Marvelous Funkshun, led by guitar shredder Sam Robinson. The band not long ago released its self-titled debut record, a quirky eight-song set of old school jam-banding, high on Hammond, pedal steel and soaring guitar licks, with guest appearances from longtime Robinson associate Kofi Burbridge of the Tedeschi-Trucks Band on masterful jazz flute. True to Robinson’s previous work, he has a lot of fun with the lyrics — “I don’t need no fancy dinner for two/Just give me two tickets to the next Bonnaroo” on “Hippie Girl” or “The hooch can make ‘em crazy/But it keeps the lovin’ hot” on “Between the Lines”.”
“I don't know what I could possibly say, that you haven't already heard, if you've heard of Marvelous Funkshun. Are you a fan of soaring bluesy guitar solos? Tight jazzy rhythm sections? Groovey organs and piano? Are you a fan of jammy bands, that make you want to dance? Well you're SURE to love this band!”
“Marvelous Funkshun is a jammy collective that blends funk, jazz, and rock into a fusion that is, as the name claims, pretty marvelous.”
