FUNK ENGINE is a four piece Sydney band dedicated to groove-based styles of music. As well as funk they also play jazz fusion and reggae. Funk Engine’s influences include Bob Marley, Weather Report, Jaco Pastorius, James Brown, Parliament, Bootsy Collins and Herbie Hancock. Less obvious is the influence of Thelonious Monk whose dissonant harmonies and playful melodies contribute to the band's style of “bent funk”. Watch them on YouTube.
