The inevitable result of a talent-soaked soul and jazz community, The Funky Knuckles are taking the sound of Dallas to an entirely different level. They have been together six years and have held a weekly residency since the beginning. The band is comprised of sidemen from some of the most respected acts in the music industry (Beyonce, Erykah Badu, Chrisette Michelle, Talib Kweli, P. Diddy, The Polyphonic Spree, etc.), yet possesses a sound distinctly separate from any of their individual projects. The Funky Knuckles feature Evan Weiss on trumpet, Ben Bohorquez on saxophone, Phil Aelony on guitar, Kwinton Gray on keyboards, Wes Stephenson on bass, and Cedric Moore on drums.
Advanced Ticket Price: $21.00; Door Ticket Price: $26.25.
