Da Phatfunk Clique Kickin’ Back

Several venues have experienced the funk/jazz sounds of Da Phatfunk Clique. In September of 1998, violinist Darrell “D-Funk” Looney began collaborating with several musicians on what would be the first release in 1999, Pandemic Love. The sound is unique as the violin is the lead instrument.

Da Phatfunk Clique was formed as a band by January of 2000, utilizing local talent in support of the album release. Out of this effort came development of a unique sound, both jazzy and funky, that has been described as an amalgamation of jazz from Mahavishnu Orchestra and funk ambience of George Clinton’s P-Funk.

True to form, these are among the group’s influences as are artists such as Jean Luc Ponty, Herbie Hancock, George Duke and Noel Pointer. The band has become redirected as a musical concept, developing the live vibe as various musicians add their creative influence to the flow.
