Funk Ensemble


SLUFunk plays music from American R&B and other musics of the African diaspora. It is modeled on a working band: participants make decisions about membership, repertoire, and performances, and are expected take on necessary tasks from engineering recordings to writing arrangements to lugging gear.

Performance Dates

We currently seek a keyboard player, a percussionist, and a trumpet player, in addition to two female vocalists, one of whom is a high (or coloratura) soprano (i.e., can you sing the last verse of Beyoncé's "Love on Top"?).

To audition, or if you have any questions, contact director Larry Boyette.
