Quarantined As FUNK!
Share the Show
In the early COVID times, Queer As Funk got together to play some tunes, and the energy and love were palpable. While we can’t play for live audiences for the time being, we hope you enjoy a couple of songs directly from our practice space. “There’s nowt so queer as folk”, or so the old English adage goes. Queer As Funk believes in celebrating differences, and what better way than with a big ol’ dance party?

It started, like most good ideas, over beer and song. A few short years later, Vancouver’s Queer as Funk is renowned for its tight rhythm section, hot horns, and soulful vocals, bringing together the city’s best musicians in a dynamic, high-energy dance band. There’s nothing this tight-knit band loves more than performing together, and that love is palpable to audiences everywhere.
With repertoire ranging from beloved funk, soul and Motown classics of the 60’s and 70’s (Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, Stevie Wonder) to contemporary pop favourites (Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars, Justin Timberlake), Queer as Funk is also the sharpest-dressed suit-and-tie band in town.
