Funkiphino: A-list talent

Funkiphino is a 12-piece horn band -- a funk sensation whose high-energy performances feature funk and soul songs. The group is the "go-to" band for the Denver Bronco Association and has performed at premier venues such as the Ritz Carlton, the Hyatt, and The Lodge at Cordillera.  

With each member of the group hand-picked for talent, intelligence, and the ability to entertain – the 12 members are a true super-group. Like signing all of the best players for a sports team – Funkiphino is comprised of only A-list talent.

Meet the band

The 12 members include: Chris Fischer, Brittany Loan, Valerie Rick, Andrew Lacy, Jeremy Sandoval, Brian Phillips, Nathan Peoples, Jessica Fischer, Jason U’ren, Rob Caviness, Michael McDaniel, and Alex Baker.

Each Funkiphino performance requires all players to be performing at the best of their abilities. Therefore, the stage is not populated from a “pool” of musicians. The group is a legitimate band of actual members, all priding themselves on each fabulous performance.

Sponsor to donate car to Project Self-Sufficiency

The August 8 concert is being sponsored by Houska Automotive. Houska is celebrating 60 years in business with 60 acts of kindness. At intermission, they'll be donating a vehicle to a Project Self-Sufficiency* participant.

Plus, Houska Automotive has challenged other automotive businesses to donate as well. Several have already met the challenge... contact Houska Automotive or Project Self-Sufficiency to donate.  

*Since 1986, Project Self-Sufficiency has been creating opportunity for low-income, single-parent families in Larimer County who are struggling to make ends meet and overcome the cycle of poverty.  From educational development and career planning to adequate child care access and housing, the program is a comprehensive resource providing everything a single parent needs to become self-sufficient.
