REGGIE BROWN & BUNCH-A-FUNK
Crowne Plaza Reading / Goodnites Lounge
Tickets: $15 at door
From performing at two presidential inaugurations and several Hillary Clinton functions, Bunch-A-Funk co-founder and lead vocalist Reggie Brown has had some notable performances that paved the way for the beginning of Reading-based Bunch-A-Funk.
Over the years, the lineup has changed, but Bunch-A-Funk has been able to continue its reign of complex rhythmic funk, R&B and smooth jazz music.
“We all kind of like the music that we do — funk, smooth jazz and R&B,” Brown says. “We just like to groove. A matter of fact, our band’s motto is ‘catch the groove.’ We like a nice solid pocket, blazing horns, solid vocals and intricate arrangements.
“We like the authenticity of the music. Nothing is really programmed or synthesized. It’s been a learning experience and I think that’s what musicians really want to do.”
