What started as Purple Monkey Dishwasher in the late 90’s with the friendship of three young men has evolved into the energetic, high quality music of a five piece band known as Funktapuss.
As a live act, they bring a dynamic energy to the stage which is enhanced by a complete and full sound with a huge emphasis on the ‘groove.’ With a 2+ hour live set and a repertoire of over 80 songs, the music of Funktapuss comprises original tunes and influences from such artists as Stevie Wonder, Parliament Funkadelic, Soulive, Maceo Parker, and Victor Wooten.
Funktapuss has entertained crowds of over 2000 at many of Cape Cod’s top venues and prides itself on being tight with a massive groove that will fill a dance floor.
“Rare and hard to come by…but when such talent finds its way together under the same roof, consider yourself lucky to be at the right place at the right time.” Laddie Durham, owner of Harry’s Cajun Bar & Grill, Hyannis, MA. [+]
