Review by Sal Serio
July 2011

Ooohhhh yeaahhh, I feel the disco inferno welling up inside of me. The Funktion is giving me some serious happy feet, that’s for sure. These horn-happy R&B groove merchants from Kalamazoo will fill your dance floor prescription, and then some!

Pick up this CD, open it up, and then “Step Into It”! Player attire not required, but recommended. If you’ve got a jones for the heyday of Prince, Kool & The Gang, and newbie-funk like Kings Go Forth, then this music will cure all your ills.

“Step Into It” is Funktion’s second release. Lead singer Andrew Schrock lays down the silky, seductive, crooning, not unlike a white Smoove-B fronting a hyped-up Earth, Wind, & Fire. The rest of the band admirably keeps up with the humping groove in a trumpet-sax-keyboard-guitar-bass-percussion aphrodisiac stew.

But don’t take MY word for it! Strap on those dancing slippers and come out to groove with Funktion in your own bad way! Thursday, August 25th at Martyr’s in Chicago is followed by two Wisconsin dates with Steez. Friday, August 26th at the Union Terrace in Madison, and Saturday, August 27th at Milwaukee’s Fire On Water. See you homies there!
