New funk bands please!

 
  • New funk bands please!

    Hi! We are all familiar with the greatness of James Brown, Sly Stone, Parliament/Funkadelic, Tower of Power, Commodores, Earth Wind & Fire etc, but how about new bands? What's going on with the funk scene right now?

    I'm totally unaware of the development of funk music in the 1990s and 2000s, the "newest" band I'm familiar with must be Jamiroquai, who started somewhere in the late 1980s...

    Most preferably I would like to hear new bands with a driving horn section and a pronounced, improvisational musicianship. Electronic additions are ok, but I prefer the groove being played by a real rhythm section, rather than just a drum machine. So what's "the Tower of Power of 2000s"?

    I like Lefties Soul Connection very much. Not so well-known, but try it anyway.
