To transcend musical genres, space, and time. The core of the group, Chris, Jon, and Ian, joined forces as a power-trio in August of 2004. They blended each otherís influences to create a newer, edgier funk sound, attracting an instant fan base in and around Gainesville. The addition of Coop (past front-man), in the spring of 2005, sent Funkatron to a whole new level, incorporating wild synth sounds and powerful vocals. The group worked, consistently gigging, toward their debut EP-"Skylab Sessions", which came out Jan. of 2007. The addition of Grant (the chicken!) on percussion furthered Funkatron''s sound and added a whole new element to their live show. Funkatron released their self-titled full-length album in September of 2008 with much anticipation and even more acclamation! Since then, Funkatron has added two new members in replacement of Coop, who has taken to New York for his own musical adventures: Dylan Samore now rocks the funky vocals and backing guitar, while Rickie Santiago throws down those funky keys and backing vocals! The boys are currently working on many new songs to premier all around the state and are eager to get back into the studio for another HOTT release! Funkatron always puts on a great shows and loves to host guest artists, so hit us up!
