April 16, 2013 - Face The Funk live debut!

Frequency Entertainment presents the debut of Vegas' hottest new funk act "Face The Funk" - April 26th 10:30pm at Vinyl inside the Hard Rock Hotel, Las Vegas.

"Face The Funk" is the brain child of award winning composer, Frank Klepacki, who's love of old school funk music is reflected and based on the edgier founding influential bands of the genre.

Comprised of an all-star line up featuring musicians who have toured with such names as The Family Stone, Gladys Knight, and Celine Dion, this band packs a serious groove.

"After watching the Woodstock film performance of Sly & The Family Stone as a kid, I said to myself, 'that's what I want to accomplish someday,'" says Klepacki. "Since then, I was then fortunate to have the opportunity to tour with The Family Stone as their drummer for 3 years."

Face The Funk's debut album "Here At Last," draws from old-school funk influences, while presenting new cleverly written material. "I've been inspired by so many great funk artists and musician friends who share in the love of this music, and because there are so few new artists doing this, I've pieced together an album and band to help re-introduce this music to the modern generation."

The Review Journal quote on Face The Funk: "With a get-up-out-of-your-seat horn section, touches of wah-wah guitar, plenty of badass, booty-moving bass lines and trilling keys, this is a hard- funk sweat bath!"
