“Redtenbacher’s Funkestra delivers “out-and-out spectacular funk.”
These are the words of DJ, percussionist and acid jazz pioneer, Snowboy. The Funkestra is a high-energy band led by Austrian born bassist and writer Stefan Redtenbacher. They play their own blend of original funk, soul and jazz, and are regularly seen blowing the roof off the 606 Club. The band has released 9 albums to date, which feature a variety of international guests including Fred Wesley and Lenny Pickett. Completing the line up are Rob Fowler (sax), Eran Kendler (guitar), Ross Stanley (Hammond organ) and Mike Sturgis (drums).
