Huckleberry Funk is a high-powered Funk, R&B and Soul band based in Bloomington, Indiana. Their live shows have earned them a reputation as one of the most exciting and entertaining live performances in the Midwest.
Hailing from Long Island, Pittsburgh, Indianapolis and Bloomington, the members of Huckleberry Funk were brought together by their shared love for gritty, groove-centric music. After endless nights of self-reflection and some words of wisdom from a good friend, it became clear that "Funk" is much more than a genre - it's an attitude. The diverse upbringings and musical styles of each band-member allows Huckleberry Funk to establish meaningful and memorable relationships with every audience they play for.
At the heart of a Huckleberry Funk show, the audience can expect powerhouse vocals, face-melting guitar solos, a touch of east coast horns, and rock-solid grooves. Drawing inspiration from artists like The Main Squeeze, James Brown, Anderson .Paak, and Miguel, their unique feel-good sound is equally funky, soulful, and hard-hitting.
Huckleberry Funk has made an impressive premiere into the live music circuit, drawing attention from national acts like The Main Squeeze, Khraungbin, Dumpstaphunk and the billboard charting, NOLA favorites, Water Seed. Huck funk continues to fill the rooms of top venues including The Bluebird (Bloomington, IN), The Vogue (Indianapolis), and Rockwood Music Hall (New York City, NY). Continuously writing new music and honing in on their live performances, Huckleberry Funk is rapidly building a loyal fanbase as they transition into a premier national act.
