Kris Funn

Discussion in 'Bassists [DB]' started by Alex Spradling, Dec 29, 2006.


  1. Who knows anything about Kris. I dig his playing with Kenny, its energetic and fun. I know about his road story webpage, its fun, but i'm looking for biographical info.


    thanks,

    Alex

    I don't know him personally, but I used to see him every week for a couple years. I watched him really grow as a player over that time. I remember first seeing him and thinking he was a good local guy, but as time went on I found I would miss his playing if someone else was filling in for him. When more seasoned players would show up, he really elevated his game. As far as his bio, I don't know much. I know he went to college in DC and I believe his father is a music teacher in Baltimore City schools, or perhaps Baltimore County. Good player. I miss seeing him around town.

    I heard him once in Ottawa playing with Kenny Garrett. He was playing a borrowed bass and could definitely play.

    Likin' that so much.
    . Christian plays so well and he's so funny with the bling. ('Fess up -- you want that horned ring, don't you?)
    . Elena Pinderhughes is so musical -- I saw her with Stefon Harris at Newport last month and she was slaying. As of this writing, she is an undergraduate student!!
    . Funn finding the perfect way to say more with less -- "Twin" is busy and Funn is just hanging in The Zone
    . And nobody holds back a drop. Full speed, full energy even playing to an office of newsies.

    Me too. I listen to this over and over, and yes, I want the ring real bad.

    shameless plug zombie thread. I just dropped an album and therefore have developed an ego. Would love for my fellow bassists to give a listen.

    Just giving another shout out to Kris. Listened to him with Joey Alexander and Johnathan Blake at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, PA. Killer playing from all. What a great concert!
