Lineup and Details for Retenbacher's Funkestra on Fri 14th September 2012
With a fine balance between exciting arrangements and fiery solos, the Redtenbachers Funkestra never fails to entertain their audience with their feel-good, high-energy and original hybrid of Funk, Soul and Jazz, interjected with a good dose of humor and fun.
A characteristic and popular trademark of the band is their obvious enjoyment of on-stage performing and Stefan Redtenbachers banter, where he delights the crowd with amusing tales of the inner workings of the band and stories about the conception of their tunes.
Established in 2005, this multinational band is the creative brainchild of bassist and bandleader Stefan Redtenbacher who is currently mixing the material for their fifth album The Cooker which is due later this year.
Alongside the core sextet, featuring Jim Hunt on tenor saxophone and Sid Gauld on trumpet, their records additionaly feature Funk legends like trombonist Fred Wesley (James Brown, Parliament), baritone saxophonist Stephen Doc Kupka, trumpeter Lee Thornburg, tenor sax player Lenny Pickett (Tower of Power), guitarists Elliott Randall (Steely Dan) and Eric Krasno (Soulive/Lettuce) as well as the finest horn sections from the vibrant London Jazz Funk scene (Incognito, Brand New Heavies) and Michael B. Nelsons Hornheads (Prince).
For special occasions and festival gigs the band performs as Redtenbachers Funkestra Mini Big Band plus a featured vocalist. This 10 piece line up with a 5 piece horn section is known to exude some serious energy that causes walls to shake and people to sweat and dance!
