Funkranomicon (funk-rä-näm-e-kon) is a Funk and Soul band that is back on the Bay Area music scene.  The band was becoming a big name in the Bay Area circa the year 2001, when the members all went their separate ways. In 2009, singer and founding member Joe Neto got together with original drummer Tim Welch and reformed the band with 4 new members, Jonathan Kessler on bass, Scott Polland on guitar, Sara Sterns on vocals and Steve Pearson on keys.  The new lineup has come together with a funky vengeance, and is winning new fans with every performance.

Funkranomicon plays dynamic, highly danceable, high energy funk music.  The repertoire currently consists of a blend of original material and classic funk and soul cover tunes by artists such James Brown, Parliament-Funkadelic, The Ohio Players, The Staple Singers, Sly and the Family Stone and more.

Original songs from Funkranomicon can be heard on KUSP and KZSC radio by request. Or, visit our website and follow the links to Facebook and Youtube

Band trivia – the band gets its name from “The Necronomicon”, a fictional book appearing in the stories by horror novelist H. P. Lovecraft and his followers.
