Anthony’s Farewell Show Tonight!

Good Saturday Morning to all the Funkonauts out there! We had a blast playing at Mainely Brews last night and some of us even managed to work some sleep into our schedule. Thanks again to all the folks who came out last night, the staff at Mainely Brews, and the folks who took care of the band tab – y’all were fantastic.

Tonight we’re bringing it to the stage in Portland at Gingko Blue for a very special occasion as we say good-bye to our funky drummer, Anthony Marino, and send him out into the world to focus on his career and painting. It goes without saying that even without a whole lot of sleep, everything is going to be hanging out tonight, so you don’t want to miss this show.

As usual, there’s no cover at Gingko Blue, so it’s a great time to grab a dozen or so of your friends and make a night of it. The music drops at 9:00 pm and we’re going straight on until midnight. Be there!

Boomshack To Brushes With Anthony

In case y’all haven’t noticed, we’ve got some pretty dang talented folks hanging around in this here humble little funk band. Why, just last week James was entertaining us with his famous flaming poodle juggling trick* and we have it on good authority that John can do Serbian sign language with his feet.

Which is why it’s no surprise that our drummer, Anthony Marino, is getting lots of attention lately for his painting. The clip above is from a Portland community TV station that recently featured Anthony, and we even got a bit of a shout out as well. Give it a look and then go check out Anthony’s art at

* Seriously, you think we’d actually light the poodles on fire? C’mon… James only juggles non-fiery poodles.
