FUNKASAURUS came together late one Spring when the then threesome discovered the need for a soulful singer. Once found, the musical chemistry between the four of them was so strong, they were able to start playing gigs three days after the conception of the band, before they even had a name. These days, Funkasaurus is a mix of blues, soul and funk music that is designed to get audiences out of their seats and onto the dance floor. The band has been featured at various types of events, including The Lowell Folk Festival. When you’re looking to get out and get dancin’, Funkasaurus is sure to please!

The band name gives the impression that this is going to be a classic ‘hillbilly’ band, but they are very far removed from this old timey genre despite an eerie moodiness. There is a high quality, sparse musicality, as well as tremendous playing and evocative vocals and some beautiful songwriting that lets you know this band is not only different to most of their generic companions but also of an exceptional quality and originality.
