We started playing Connecticut in 1997 and have since grown our territory faster than a door-to-door Jehovah's Witness, with gigs in five New England States. Like the Big E, but naughtier.
We play New York and New Jersey, too... But that doesn't seem to impress the puritans back home. We have been featured on VH-1's Cover Wars, so you can see we have national exposure too!
Although we like to think we are too "bad ass" to be corporate darlings, we've hit that circuit too... with appearances at the Greater Hartford Open Golf Tournament, the Pilot Pen Tennis Tournament, The Major League LaCrosses National Championships, and the Yale Bowl. The Ivy Leaguers love us.
Darik and the funbags is a coming together of all these things and our goal is to continue to dig deep into our twisted, creative and playfully eccentric minds to create this kind of atmosphere. And of course if all that fails, we all just get drunk and pray for the best. Nevertheless, it’s always a good time! If people walk away saying "I can’t believe I had that great of a time!" then we feel we’ve done our job! If you’ve been to any of our shows then you know why it’s been working so well. It’s undoubtedly because of the people we call "funbaggers"
What’s a funbagger? Well, that would be those who partake in the madness week to week, leaving their inhibitions at home, free to dance, sing and get crazy with no fear of criticism. If you see one of these people, say hi, buy them a drink, take off each others clothes, what have you but do something because they just might change your life, they most definitely have changed ours!
