For some musicians funk is where it’s at: It starts and ends with the groove!
Funk Engine is one such band. The Sydney five- piece is dedicated to groove-based music, including funk, jazz-fusion and soul. The band members all grew up in Sydney except Felix Lalanne who is originally from Byron Bay.
The band formed in January 2013 at the Sydney Conservatorium of music being brought together by band leader, composer and electric bass player, Siebe Pogson. The rest of the band include Holly Conner (drums), Nischal Manjunath (Tenor Saxophone), Felix Lalanne (electric guitar) and Nicholas Twiney (keyboard).
