It was 1998 when two brothers in funk collided and decided it was time to bring funk classics to the Israeli stage.
Funk'n'Stein The Band was on stage playing the music of James Brown, George Clinton, Sly and The Family Stone and many of their favourite Funk artists. They found that the people didn’t need to know the music in order to enjoy it. From the moment the show started it seemed everybody forgot the world outside and all that existed was that dancing, groovy vibe. They got the early Friday slot every two weeks in a Tel Aviv club and watched their crowd grow with every show.
Then, as must happen in funk bands, a horn section came along. This brought their performances to a whole new level - for the band and the crowd. Funk'n'Stein The Band began to bring that true funk groove - and the people responded. They outgrew the early show and made the alarming decision that funk night would be every other Monday at midnight. However, even this, would not keep the people away! So, within a year of their first performance and with an already loyal following, Funk'n'Stein The Band began playing every other Friday night - the main slot.
In the summer of 2000 they introduced their new look at the tremendously successful 70’s Night Live party in Tel Aviv and didn't miss a beat. Over the next years, their concerts were growing to include all areas of Israel, the press was giving them great reviews ("Funk'n'Stein is a package whose show is almost as good as their music and the audiences, in case you're wondering, are crazy about them") and more and more Israeli stars were coming to join them on stage. Funk'n'Stein The Band continued focusing on their stage performance and started composing original music.
In mid 2003, Funk'n'Stein The Band took a break from performing in order to work on material for their first album and a performance focusing on their own music.
Their show was now their own - their own music, their own style, their own look and groove - but sitting on the backs of all the greats that came before them.
A sold out album release tour, great reviews and record-breaking sales for an Israeli act performing in English!
Funk'n'Stein The Band is now working to bring their music to you.
They are on a Funky Mission and They Will Not Stop 'Til You All Be Saved!!!
