Program Notes

Funk is all around us. It has permeated every aspect of popular music and culture. What was born as a 70's counter-culture movement has grown to become the heart of any music with a beat. Sit in a coffee shop, listen to top-40's radio, shop in a department store -- it doesn't matter if it's a hip 90's club tune, or a contemporary concert music work -- you can't escape the funk. Chunk owes major favors to George Clinton and the Parliament Funkadelic, Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Prince, and Beck, just to name a few. We steal, because we love.
