Dallas' Funky Knuckles are a six-member jazz outfit who make a soulful, genre-bending brand of electric fusion.
Formed around 2010, Funky Knuckles initially began as a trio featuring keyboardist/vocalist Caleb Sean McCampbell, bassist Wes Stephenson, and drummer Cedric Moore. However, it was while holding down their weekly residency at Dallas' Tini Bar that they began adding members, including guitarist Phill Aelony, saxophonist Ben Bohorquez, trumpeter Evan Weiss
, and percussionist Frank Moka. They released their debut album, As of Lately, on Snarky Puppy
bassist Michael League's GroundUp
label in 2012. Two years later, Funky Knuckles followed up with Meta-Musica, which broke through, landing on top of the iTunes jazz charts. ~ Matt Collar, Rovi
