Funke and the Two Tone Baby is a one man army. Uncategorised and uncharted. A blur of buttons and sweat. Powerful walls of grooving, dirty electronica and a whirlwind of energy walk a fine line between 90’s dance, electro-rock and alt-blues.
Created live and direct with loopers and samples, F&TTTB sets the bar of how much sound a one-man band can produce, as fat dance beats and filthy synth basslines are juxtaposed by a beaten up blues guitar, sing-along anthems and glitchy harmonica. Layered songs of positivity and social harmony mesh perfectly with compulsive dance grooves and infectious riffs.
Over the last 10 years F&TTTB has played over 1000 shows and each year his musical style and sonic output have grown and expanded along with a dedicated and cult following. Smashing a tour support with Dutty Moonshine Big Band and the accolade of biggest ever opening crowd at Beautiful Days Festival, F&TTTB has proven he can hold his own on the biggest of stages, and against the most powerful of bands.
‘The one-man busker armed with a battered acoustic guitar and a bank of electronics is cranking up a holy roller groove and the audience is going wild… Huge compulsive electronic funk grooves blast out from the digital and mesh perfectly with the acoustic-driven neo busking anthems.’ John Robb, Louder Than War – https://louderthanwar.com/beautiful-days-festival-2022-live-review/
“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
