Van Funk is a dual fronted blues band.
Jordan and Jess have been music and life partners for over 15 years and have a chemistry that's mesmerizing. With an energetic show that is fresh but sounds reminiscent of the past, this is a band that clearly breaks the mold.
Jess, a scorcher on blues harp also has a soulful voice that seamlessly transitions from blues, to boogie, and soul. Jess’s dad has played bass with the pair for years and more recently they have added a full band including keys and lead. With all the necessary elements of a great blues band in place, they are ready to take over the world
