Reverend Barry & The Funk are an 8-pc funk band featuring a 3-pc horn section, and one of the fastest-rising “buzzworthy” acts in the state Florida. Fueled by their recent #1 Global Position on Reverbnation’s Funk Charts after the release of their debut album “SxyGdLuv”, and the success of their recent breakout single “LoveShine”, this 8-pc band is now headlining festivals and larger venues around the state.
This talented band features:
Grammy-nominated drummer Ray C. Williams (Erykah Badu, Stevie Wonder)
Grammy-Nominated vocalist Yaya Diamond (for her work with Walter “Clyde” Orange of The Commodores)
Grammy-Nominated guitarist Mark Vincent (Melissa Etheridge, Stanley Clarke, The 5th Dimension, Dionne Warwick, Michael Sembello)
Bassist, Lead Vocalist & Bandleader “Reverend” Barry Nicholson has performed and recorded with several top acts in Los Angeles, Dallas, TX and more.
The super-tight horn section – comprised of Chris Chiodo (trumpet), Bob Miner (sax) and Donald Parker – have decades of performing credits in every imaginable musical style and configuration, from traveling circuses to big band jazz.
This band’s live performance is a MUST-SEE! Their high-energy performance features not only originals, but also true-to-the-original cover versions of funk & soul classics from Earth, Wind & Fire, Tower of Power, Commodores, Kool & the Gang, Prince, James Brown, Jackson 5, Rick James, Aretha Franklin and much more.
This show will be presented in a limited-capacity cabaret setting to promote proper social distancing. Tables of four will be available for purchase as a package. To avoid close contact with others outside each group, seats will not be sold individually.
