‘you know what the Funk is about’

(Fred Wesley – trombonist - James Brown)


‘Out and out spectacular Jazz- Funk’ (Snowboy - DJ)


In the funkiest tradition of Bootsy Collins, the J B All-stars, Tower of Power & the James Taylor Quartet.

Live and on record, FUNKESTRA have worked with the likes of Steely Dan, Fred Wesley, Pee Wee Ellis, JB All-stars, Van Morrison, Sting, Incognito & The Brand New Heavies.


Funkestra’s name accurately describes the high-energy feel of the music Lead by renowned UK/European Bass Star -Stefan Redtenbacher, featuring  internationally acclaimed soulful vocalist Helena May - joined in a pulsating rhythm section by top USA Drummer Mike Sturgis (Tom Jones, Bob James, Randy Brecker) with its fiery horn section frontline featuring Simon Allen (Jools Holland/Jamie Cullum) and slinky guitar of Eran Kendler, performing original funky grooves with freewheeling style that is hard to beat. A heady brew of raw energy, funk-driven bass riffs & fiery horn arrangements with which the band are now synonymous.


Thrilling audiences in London, across the UK & Europe, at Pizza Express Live, 606 club and most recently with the 50 piece orchestra! at The Royal Northern College of Music,


FUNKESTRA is highly entertaining, applying tremendous musicianship to some amazing music.
