The Band Fonktopus was founded by Alex Bianco (Guitar/Vocals) and Andy 7even (Drums) in September 2017.
After a short while, Fernando Yokota joined the band as a bass player. Due to Alex Bianco`s impressive voice, he also
accepted the vocal part.
Curently Fonktopus is joining forces with the female
backing and lead singer Saira - results will follow soon.
By now the band has done some in-house production
recording of audio tapes and videos as well
as a couple of video clips from their rehearsel.
Fonktopus is inspired by traditional funk music like James Brown, Funkedalic, Bootsy Collins but also by other music
styles like reggae, rock and jazz music, for example: Burning Spear, Living Colour, Weather Report or Herbie Hancock.
It's the groove that matters!
