Formed in late 2010, Tweed Funk's national ascent has been driven by their horn-fueled, Memphis flavored blues, roots, and soul. This Milwaukee, Wisconsin 6 piece soul-blues revue is fronted by Joseph "Smokey" Holman, who recorded under Curtis Mayfield in the early 70's. Tweed Funk boasts 5 Wisconsin Area Music Industry (WAMI) Wins in the last 4 years for the band and its members.
On April 29, 2016 Tweed Funk will release their 4th album, Come Together, which consists of 10 new original songs. The band made a concerted effort with the new album to focus on writing quality songs as opposed to writing to a formula. Additionally, Tweed Funk wanted to take advantage of their revised line-up and work more collaboratively in the songwriting process. Special guest Doug Woolverton (trumpet) of Roomful of Blues appears on the entire album along with special guests Chrissy Dzioba and Sara Moilanen of The Whiskeybelles who lend their backing vocals to 5 of the new songs.
