Monks of Funk

Based in Irvine CA

We are a small 5-member jazz group based in Irvine CA, consisting of Tenor, Alto, Guitar, Keys, and Drums. We are all high school students, but we are fairly advanced musicians. We play mostly jazz standards as well as some modern jazz and funk pieces.

A sample of our set would include - Black Nile by Wayne Shorter, Strasbourg/St Denis by Roy Hargrove, Since You Asked by John Scofield, Maiden Voyage by Herbie Hancock, Speak No Evil by Wayne Shorter, A Night in Tunisia by Dexter Gordon, Recordame by Joe Henderson, High Noon by Chris Potter, The Red One by Pat Metheny, and other jazz/fusion pieces as well
