After a sold out show last year, the ‘One man Electro Blues Band’ returns this October!
Funke and the Two Tone Baby was voted the greatest RMH gig of 2018 by our beloved gig-goers… so what else needs to be said? Get on this one fast Ramsgate, as these will fly yet again!
“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
Funke and the Two Tone Baby is a one man sonic explosion. Uncategorized and uncharted. Jammed halfway between frenzied alt-blues and metronomic dance beats. Combining guitar and harmonica with beatboxing and effects that seamlessly collide the organic with the mechanical to create a fresh sound of unstoppable rhythm and unrelenting melody.
From supporting Skinny Lister, Beans on Toast, Hayseed Dixie and Mercury Prize nominees The Comet is Coming to a 40 date festival tour in 2017, including standout shows at Beautiful Days, Bearded Theory and Hungary’s Sziget Festival, Funke has quickly becoming a must-see act on the festival and touring circuit. 2019 will see yet more shows from Funke after the release of his excellent new album Denizen.
“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
