I See The Mothership Comin’ – Old Port Festival 2013

2013-06-09-bigeasy-web

Funkonauts, we’re hyped up because it’s just over 12 hours until we hit the stage for an hour of dynamite! During Old Port Festival 2013 on Sunday June 9, you don’t want to be anywhere else in Portland except at The Big Easy when we unleash the power of this fully operational mothership. We’re going to be covering Parliament’s classic Mothership Connection album in full P-Funk regalia along with hitting some of our own tunes along the way.

Doors open at 11:30 am, music is Noon to 1:00 pm, and it’s only $6 at the door. Stick around after our set for 3 other bands covering albums by Morphine (Moonhawk), No Doubt (Andi Fawcett with Fighting Gravity), and Queen (Clubber Lang). Four bands playing four classic albums for just 6 bucks?! You can’t find that kind of entertainment anywhere else. Come out and get funky with us!

Lots of great music happening at the Old Port Festival, so get down there early and start the day off right with us.

Funky Friday at Bull Feeney’s Tonight!

Don’t let the rain ruin a perfectly good Funky Friday! Throw on a raincoat, grab an umbrella – whatever you need to do – and get on down with us tonight.

We’re back at Bull Feeney’s in Portland tonight and, as always, it’s gonna be a party in the Old Port. As usual, there’s no cover on Funky Friday, so that means you’re fresh out of excuses funkonaut. Grab two or three of your friends and make your way down to Fore Street to party with us. Music drops at 9:30 pm and continues until we all get kicked out – dig?

Right now, we’re booking more shows and looking forward to taking some time off in October while we gear up for our return to The Big Easy on Saturday November 3rd. For those of you keeping score at home, our first ever gig was playing The Big Easy back in June of 2011 – we were grateful for the chance they gave us back then and we’re super excited to have another show where we’ll be rolling out all the new original material along with some crowd-pleasing favorites. Thanks again for the support and be sure to check in with us on Facebook and Twitter!

Gettin’ Down… Just For The Funk Of It…

Greetings to all the loyal Funkonauts out there who are keeping the faith! It’s a been a couple weeks off for us to recharge the batteries and bang a few dents out of the mothership’s grill, but we’re getting ready to fly again.

We’ve been working on some new tunes that are getting ready to see the light of day soon. There’s also been lots of scheduling happening, so we’re pretty excited about some of the new shows we have coming up. Want to get in on the action? Wander on over and like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter to catch all the good stuff as it happens (or even before).

Next week, we bring Funky Friday back to Bull Feeney’s in Portland for another epic show. Y’all have been great and we’re hoping to bring it to another level – Friday August 24th at 9:30 pm. No cover, no excuses. Wonder what happens on Funky Friday? Take a look…

Mama's Boomshack at Bull Feeney's on Friday July 27 at 9:30 pmGreetings funkonauts from every corner of the known galaxy! It’s good to see so many of you brave the interstellar journey to be with us here today…

Come check us out this Funky Friday July 27th when we take over the top floor at Bull Feeney’s for that funky soul that makes you lose control. We’ll be dropping some great tunes including a couple new cuts that you sure don’t want to miss. The fun starts at 9:30 pm and continues until they kick us out onto the sidewalk. As always, there’s no cover at Funky Friday so that means no excuses. Grab a couple friends and bring them downtown for a funky good time.

Never been to Bull Feeney’s? Great traditional Irish pub at 375 Fore Street in the heart of Portland, Maine’s Old Port. Lots of great beers on top with the majority of them being local Maine brews. Stop on by early for some dinner and then hustle on upstairs for a good spot on the dance floor.
