Bio

Not all FUNK is created equal some times you'll find something missing. A beat with no syncopation, bass with no grooooooooove, vocals with no soul. Therefor leaving the musical listener with a severe case of Honky-Pox. To guard against this we recommend you receive a soul vaccination administered painlessly by the "Funk Junkies". With founding Members Rich Fracassi Bass/ lead and background vocals, Jim Verdi Drums, Tommy Rausch Guitar/Bass/Lead and background vocals, Joe Mariani Tenor Sax, Jason Miller Trombone and the other regular band members such as Gennaro Esposito Guitar, Neil (Nail) Alexander Keys, Pito Castillo percussion, Joey Ray Lead Vocals and the rest of the gang the "Funk Junkies" are specialists when it comes to laying down the Funk. This 13 piece band which includes a 5 piece horn section performs there version of classic and new music  by "Tower of Power", "James Brown", "The Ohio Players", "Kool and the Gang", "Earth Wind and Fire", "Stevie Wonder", "Average White Band", "Sly & the Family Stone," "Chaka Kahn," "Montel Jordan," "Prince"and many many more.
