The Funkaphones

The Funkaphones is a four-piece retro pop funk band bringing a modern feel to the 70s vibe.

A group of international musicians, they came together magically at a HK jam session. Spontaneous creativity soon progressed into a distinct blend of sounds – mixing an ethereal Wurlitzer with funky electric guitar and groovy drum beats. Part funk, part pop, and part plain fun, The Funkaphones will make you feel like you’ve been warped to the 70s with the same outfit you wore to the show.

Think Hall and Oates meets Maroon 5. The band’s catchy grooves and quirky lyrics will make you glad you brought your dancing shoes, because whatever your musical taste or era, you’ll be dancing like your pants are on fire.
