Funknut was formed in 2006 to spread the message of love using their instruments. Combining the improvisation of jazz, the greasiness of funk and the honesty of soul, they are a force to be reckoned with. Funknut has been described as "Skillful and masterful" by City Newspaper and put simply, "Funktastic" from Jambands.com. Led by Tony Gallicchio (Giant Panda Guerilla Dub Squad) on the keyboards, it has always featured a rotating cast of Rochester's finest funksters. That is what makes it so special. Every night is different from the last and full of surprises from some of NY's best musicians. Over the years, the band has amassed a growing, loyal fanbase, playing hundreds of shows to thousands of fans. The funk is alive!
