A groovy musical project from the Phoenix Valley bringing back the FUNK!

This Arizona born band is dedicated to bringing back the FUNK since. An up and coming group born from the love of sniffing through records from the 60's and 70's in search of the funkiest and freshest grooves. Dr. Delicious is prescribing only the best deep cuts, You won't here any top 40 funk tunes at their show. Paying tribute to legends such as O'Donel Levy, Johnny "Hammond" Smith, Harlem River Drive, Gil Scott Heron, and Roy Ayers just to name a few. This 12 piece band delivers everything from the smoothest soul to the hardest of the funk. Dr. Delicious keeps it deep in the pocket in addition to blazing solos, solid grooves and rich harmonies . You gotta get down to get up, and get up to get down!

JERUSAFUNK
Jerusafunk is Phoenix’s first and only Klezploitation band! Conceived in 2010 by Chris Del Favero (guitar) and Jessie Demaree (clarinet), the ten-piece ensemble seamlessly blends traditional Klezmer with American Funk and other world music genres such as Jazz, Salsa, Mambo, Samba, Bossa Nova, Cumbia, and Afrobeat. Phoenix New Times says, “Jerusafunk is not only one of the most original bands in town, it's one of the most fun.” Jerusafunk’s will be releasing their new self-produced album, The Hierophant, June 2017 with a national tour to follow. They have been working on collaborations with local artists such as The Stakes, and are filming a new music video for their gender-bending blues mambo Jeckyl’s Heckle. Jerusafunk has also assumed the role of music directors and pit band for a live musical presentation of Jim Henson’s Labyrinth called The Goblin King’s City which will make its debut Comicon weekend in Phoenix. Since 2015, Jerusafunk has played events such as The Musical Instrument Museum Festival, Phoenix Comicon, Firefly Music Festival, and the Scottsdale Arts Festival. Jerusafunk has toured the Southwest and plays regularly at Crescent Ballroom, Valley bar and Orpheum Theater Flagstaff with bands such as Phoenix Afrobeat Orchestra, Sunn Trio, The Lique, and Qais Essar.
