Funk Friday: Getting Lethal With Kung Fu

Words By Greg Molitor (ReMIND Photography)

Connecticut's funk fusion powerhouse Kung Fu has been on an absolute tear as of late! The supergroup that features some of the scene’s finest musicians drew rave reviews all summer long during their continuing quest to once again make “fusion music” cool. And make no mistake… they are doing exactly that and then some! It’s been quite some time since a band exploded onto the jam scene like these guys have, but when you consider the talent shared among the band members and their previous musical endeavors, it’s almost a no-brainer why these guys have seen such success since their inception in late 2009. Comprised of The Breakfast’s Tim Palmieri (guitar) and Adrian Tramantono (drums), Raq’s Todd Stoops (keys), Jazz is Dead’s Dave Livolsi (bass), and Deep Banana Blackout’s Rob Somerville (sax), Kung Fu brilliantly blends the worlds of rock, jazz, and funk with all the chops you can handle…
