CHUNKY BUT FUNKY (article first published : 2002-09-24)

The British band Chunky but Funky are visiting Durban as part of the Celebrate Durban week and the Awesome Africa Music Festival.

They will appear on September 27 at the Upstage Jazz Cafe at The Playhouse, on September 28 at the BAT Centre and again on September 29 as part of the Joy of Jazz Concert at the Durban Exhibition Centre

Rev Chunky is the father figure, lead singer and keyboardist of this popular band. Before becoming a singer he worked as a minister and his musical roots are steeped in gospel music. Others in the band are Wayne Clark on guitar, Toby Greenwood on sax; Sam Hobbs on drums and Pete Shand on bass. The five-piece band has a line up of drums, bass, organ/piano, guitar and saxophone.

With regular appearances at The Hi-fi, The Atrium and a residency at The Wardrobe, CBF have established themselves with distinction on the live music circuit playing classic soul (James Brown, Otis Redding) funky blues (Robert Cray, B.B King) and covering artists as diverse as the Rolling Stones, Bob Marley, Staple Singers and Hendrix as well as their own well-crafted original numbers.
