rejuvenate the live music scene with classic funk tunes featuring a
fiery horn section. This seven-member ensemble features:

Steven Michael Smith - lead vocals, guitars
Brian Mesko - drums
Lew Taylor - keyboards and vocals
Joel Kennedy - bass
Brett Kirby - saxophones
Robert Mott - trombone
Tim Weir - trumpet

Funk45's set list is a refreshing "blast from the past", featuring
songs made popular by Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind & Fire, Steely Dan,
Tower of Power, James Brown, Maceo Parker, The Meters, Kool and the
Gang, The Commodores, Billy Preston, K.C. and the Sunshine Band,
Average White Band, Al Green, Marvin Gaye, The Isley Brothers, Rufus
and Chaka Khan.

With Funk45, you get the incredible local players with big-name, world-
wide experience -- including members who have toured with or backed
national acts such as K.C. & the Sunshine Band, The Temptations, Dr.
Lonnie Smith, and Gladys Knight -- committed to professionalism,
