Funkshone are an original funk act from the UK created by musician, DJ and producer Mike Bandoni, Producer Nino Auricchio plus special guests. Formed in 2006 Funkshone have recorded and released four 45s, 12" and CD album 'Shining' on UK funk label ‘Skyline Recordings’. The first title ‘Purification parts 1 & 2’ has now become a deep funk classic amongst the global funk contingent. Due to the popularity of the Funkshone sound, Mike formed the band in early 2007. This 9-piece band now offers a storming live show comprising of original deep funk gems alongside better-known and some not so well known obscure funk covers. Expect wild funk drum breaks and a razor sharp rhythm section, driven bass lines, killer horn lines and a whole lot of soul on the vocals! The band has recently appeared live in session on the Craig Charles Funk & Soul show for BBC 6 music to rave reviews. Add to that sold out shows at the Jazz Café and 100 Club to launch their singles and album and you have an act whose reputation precedes it!
