ABOUT US

A repeat viewing of a 1979 Episode of Top of the Pops had a huge impact on a quirky young fellow from Kingston Town (Thats Kingston Upon Thames deep in the Surrey Delta) He realised that most of this music was great. More than great, It was Fantastic !!! Ian Dury, The Police, Squeeze, The Ruts, 2 Tone, Bob Marley…..What a show ! Even Legs and Co danced to Elvis Costello !

Armed with a Harmonica , a battered guitar and a Fez he set out to find a band, hardened musos that had been there, had skanked with the best of them. It happened in no time. The Funkin Skunks were born.

The perfect summer festival band to move everybody’s feet. Five groovy guys and one sax toting girl serve up the bubble and skank of Toots & Bob Marley alongside the visceral funky edginess of Ian Dury and the Blockheads, White boy Reggae from The Clash, Police, Costello and the Ruts, New Wave class such as Squeeze and the Jam as well as 2 Tone and Ska favourites .
