The Palumbo Phunk are a London based funk rock collective formed in 2011 by guitarist, frontman and Australian singer songwriter Dion “Blindman Jumbo” Palumbo.
The ensemble was born out of The London Centre of Contemporary Music (LCCM), where Palumbo was inspired to add a horn section and two backing vocalists to his usual 4 or 5 piece rock extravaganza.
Boasting a line up from around the world PATF have become regulars on the London scene.
BBC Introducing have been early champions along with Gary Crowley who described them as “a musical powerhouse”.
The band released 1st single ‘Get It Right’ from new album ALL THE RAGE WE ARE, in early 2016. It and other tracks Takes Too Long and Funky Place have been receiving regular airplay globally from stations such as Shoreditch Radio, The Deuce Show, The Rock Emporium in L.A., and hosts of community radio.
Get It Right was voted number 1 for 3 weeks running on Dutch Station For The Love of Music in June 2016. Takes Too Long has been inn the top 10 since January 2017 on the same station
ALL THE RAGE WE ARE follows up their 2014 award winning self-produced EP, ROCK THE FUNK which won the Jazz/Funk/Fusion Category at the Independent Music Awards (IMAS) and the full album will be released in May 2017 via Thoroughbred Music
