To celebrate the release of his new album, Funke and the Two Tone Baby is returning to Ramsgate on the LP’s actual day of release to throw down an extra special show in his home county of Kent.
After what is already Funke’s biggest and best festival season to date, he will be primed and raring to present a spectacle to his loyalist of fans. You can expect to hear the album in its entirety as well as lashings of fan-favourites at this very special, one-off event.
“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
