"Face The Funk" is the brain child project of Frank Klepacki, who's love of old school funk music is clearly reflected in it's debut release, "Here At Last."
"I began my funk journey at the age of 12 when I watched the concert film 'Woodstock' and discovered the captivating performance of Sly & The Family Stone" says Frank. "I said to myself, 'that's what I want to accomplish someday,' and since then, though my path has been a musical journey through all genres, I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to tour with The Family Stone as their drummer for 3 years."
"Here At Last" contains all of Franks major funk influences wrapped up in a single package of all newly written material, in an effort to keep the sound of old school funk alive, and is dedicated to all the founding influential bands of the genre.
"I've been inspired by so many great funk artists and musician friends who share in the love of this music, that I've pieced together an album that I feel is a good representation of everything I love about it. Funk music in this form is a rare breed these days, so I wanted to contribute a new reminder to how positive and groovin' this great genre is."
While Frank writes, produces, sings and performs most instruments, The album also features some of Las Vegas' finest musicians, including horn section The Fat City Horns, and special guest appearances by guitarist Nate Wingfield, bassist Walter Jones, and singer Princetta Saray.
