Funkshone are an original funk act from the UK created by musician, DJ and producer Mike Bandoni, Producer Nino Auricchio plus special guests. Formed in 2006 Funkshone have recorded and released two 45’s on UK funk label ‘Skyline Recordings’. The first title ‘Purification parts 1 & 2’ has now become a deep funk classic amongst the global funk contingent. Due to the popularity of the Funkshone sound, Mike formed the band in early 2007. This 8-piece band now offers a storming live show comprising of original deep funk gems alongside better-known and some not so well known obscure funk covers. Expect wild funk drum breaks and a razor sharp rhythm section, driven bass lines, killer horn lines and a whole lot of soul on the vocals!
The band has recently appeared live in session on the Craig Charles Funk & Soul show for BBC 6 music to rave reviews. Add to that a recently sold out show at the Jazz Café to launch their 3rd single ‘Droppin’ and you have an act whose reputation precedes it! 7 inch Vinyl PURIFICATION PARTS 1 & 2 Here's what some folk are saying about it: -Straight from the gate purification is stompin' and bucking and then the horns bring ya round the bend to a bonafide funky finale . Miles Tackett – Breakestra The playing is great, and a nice riff – Keb Darge Love it.... got a white through my letterbox this morning! Will definitely be charting it – Richard E - Solar Apple Quarktette / Further Out Recordings I got a TP yesterday, I will be playing it, do not worry about that! - Jazzman Gerald - 'Jazzman', 'FUNK45' and 'Stark Reality' Really like the fact that it's quite ragged but so tight at the same time.. properly raw mate! - JUST JACK - Mercury records NOW GO AND BUY IT AND THE OTHER 45's, PLAY IT AND LOVE THEM!!! ALBUM DUE OUT ON SKYLINE RECORDINGS OCTOBER 2008
