FunkyBatz lists top funk picks


Our friends at FunkyBatz know what's up with the funk. Last week these experts put together their short list of can't-miss acts at Waterloo Fest! Check it out so you know where to get down with the funk lovers at the fest:


Oteil Burbridge & Friends 

The two-time Grammy winning bassist has toured with Allman Bros, and yet he brings the funk each time he shares the stage with too many rock and blues legends to count. Oteil drives the bus on stage!

The Motet 

Funk, afrobeat and jazz influenced powerhouse out of Denver. We are particularly fond of Joey Porter's B3 skills. This band didn't blow up overnight - they earned it.


California soul reminiscent of 1960s and 1970s-era funk and soul. Prepare to float.

Pimps of Joytime  

When New Orleans funk & San Francisco soul collide, we get the freshest funk-soul band ever! This band delivers the groove with a fine sharp edge!

Los Coast 

Austin's own psych soul buzz band that is wowing crowds with each performance. Oh that soul-rock sound!
