DELIVERING THE FUNK
Redtenbacher’s Funkestra – Pioneers of original wall-to-wall Jazz Funk.
Bassist, composer, bandleader, producer.
Captain of the illustrious groove ship. Loves to conceptualise and to drill down to tiny minutiae all the same. As long as he can create he is happy.
Seriously experienced drummer and bedrock of the band since 2005. Originally from the USA. Nicknames: ‘The Oracle’, ‘Sam The Eagle’. Deep thinker and maestro of mindfulness.
Karl Vanden Bossche
Percussion player to the greats.
His awesome percussion skills and ‘groove hook-up’ with Mike Sturgis are equalled only by his warm personality. Proud of his Ghanian roots and less so of his coffee machine.
Polymath and the guitarist’s guitarist.
He joined the band in 2018 after long standing
guitarist Eran Kendler was looking for brighter pastures in life. Has never repeated any lick in any of his solos so far. Outstanding.
Uber session guitarist.
Tony has played with ‘everybody’. Is guaranteed to set fire to any music in the studio or stage. Larger than life character doing things his way – a ‘rock’n’roll original with ol’ skool values.
Super musical trumpeter and keyboard player.
Loves to have a laugh and a joke. Always happy to share his arrangement skills and new found love for artistry expressed by JOP. Not the only one with a tricky last name in this band.
Hammond Organ and Piano player.
The Shropshire man has only recently joined our collective but has taken to us like the proverbial funky duck to water. Sharp wit
and nimble fingers. Never short of ideas and always ready to offer them up.
