Welcome to Funkteenth St.; A funky little place with talent and taste. Our neighborhood of music is a warm welcoming space full of superb elements of rhythmic ferocity, sonic tenacity, and thunderous bump.
Funkteenth St. is a local up and coming band. Comprised of four local guys, born and raised in West Michigan, they consist of John Auwema on guitar, Lee Bosman on bass, BJ Males on drums, and Matt Radowski on keyboards & vocals.
Believe it or not Funkteenth St has been together for just over a year, yet these guys are not new to music. With influences from Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, and The Beatles to The Meters and Miles Davis, Funkteenth St. has a veritable plethora of influence and a substantial range from which to draw their musical styles. A lifelong endeavor for all four members of the band, music from the past decades of funk, rock, and jazz has been the background for which, individually, their own unique sounds and styles mature, respectively, and provide a framework on which to build familiar yet signature music. With over a decade of musical pursuit each, these four guys came together to create Funkteenth St.; just the right blend of rhythm, passion, and style.
Funk, blues, rock and groove ridin’ is the specialty of the group’s sound. Each member brings their own bit of flare to the stage and the result is spectacular. Here are a few remarks made about the band…
