Funke & The Two Tone Baby

FUNKE & THE TWO TONE BABY at The Exchange Sat 2 March 2019 from 07:30 pm

Fuelled By Cider's favourite one man alt-blues explosion returns to Bristol on Saturday 2nd March at Exchange on Old Market, with support from Mike Dennis.

Funke and the Two Tone Baby is a one man sonic explosion. Uncategorized and uncharted. Jammed halfway between frenzied alt-blues and metronomic dance beats. Combining guitar and harmonica with beatboxing and effects that seamlessly collide the organic with the mechanical to create a fresh sound of unstoppable rhythm and unrelenting melody.

From supporting Skinny Lister, Beans on Toast, Hayseed Dixie and Mercury Prize nominees The Comet is Coming to a 40 date festival tour in 2017, including standout shows at Beautiful Days, Bearded Theory and Hungary’s Sziget Festival, Funke has quickly becoming a must-see act on the festival and touring circuit. 2018 saw yet more shows from Funke and his long awaited third album made it another busy year.

Support comes from Bristol's super-talented son Mike Dennis. Mike is a classically-trained violinist whose boyhood love of Run DMC, Beastie Boys and Gangstarr led him to create a unique kind of string-heavy hip hop music he refers to as Violinica. Performing using Jess (violin), a loop pedal and a cajon, Mike builds up layers of dense harmony and embellishes with thoughtful, energetic rhymes drawing inspiration from daily British life and the perils and profits of love with a geeky fanaticism for rhythm-bending and syncopation. https://mikedennis.bandcamp.com/
