Following his extraordinary sellout show last year, Funke and The Two Tone Baby returns to Ramsgate on November 12th!
A one-man phenomenon that mixes folky singalong anthems with blistering blues riffs, juxtaposed with fat bass, big beats and sub kicks.
“With his guitar, harmonica, beatboxing, a keyboard and a series of loop pedals Funke simply blows you away. It is almost unbelievable that there is just one person on stage as you are swamped with a sound bigger and more full than most big bands can ever achieve” – Louder than War
Go to any gig and you get the acoustic opener, the big main band and the afterparty DJ. Fuse them together and you’re starting to get close to Funke and the Two Tone Baby. A frenzied amalgamation of organic and electronic that defies all preconception.
Born from festivals and knocking on the door of 1000 shows, F&TTTB has wowed audiences from Glastonbury to Sziget, WOMAD to Boomtown and Alexandra Palace to a Bahraini Princes’ private studio. He has also secured support tours and shows with Skinny Lister, Dutty Moonshine Big Band, Comet is Coming, Beans on Toast, Hazel O’ Connor, Ferocious Dog, Hayseed Dixie, Mark Chadwick (Levellers) and many more.
A lo-fi peach with orchestral depth, a DJ without decks and a blur to the eyes, Funke generates huge sounds from seemingly nothing and sweeps up audiences in an awestruck wave of power, energy and sweat. A truly unique act that needs to be seen to be believed.
“You will hear the raw flood of power coming from each song but what you need to pinch yourself to remember is that it all stems from the fingertips of just one man” – Artree
“Funke takes the best of the blues tradition, colouring it with personal and local experience” – The Arts Desk
