Funk Worthy is a name that speaks for itself, yet means more than meets the eye. The band members seek to combine their eclectic tastes to form music that isn’t easily pinned down by genre. They began with classic funk in mind, but came to embrace many styles, including heavy rock, R&B, hip-hop, neo-soul and jazz fusion. In testament to their versatility, the band has opened for groups such as Ghost-Note, The Nth Power, Aqueous, The Plain White T’s, and the Squirrel Nut Zippers. In the summer of 2019, they released a set of 4 singles, the first set of original songs with the current lineup of the band.
The group consists of Chuck Worthy (sax/vocals), Harrison Belew (guitar), Will Ash (drums), Julian Dittmer (keys), Asher Chalkley (bass), and Tyler Blackford (lead vocals).
