Day Old Funk ::
White Boys who play that “funk”!
Redefining the Fall River funk scene, “Day Old Funk” started in a basement with its two original and current members, Aaron Correira and Jesse Copley. In 2002 shortly after graduating high school, what was once just a musical hobby for the duo became a small time career. For the next few years, they worked on forming what they describe as an “eclectic, funk rock fusion” band. Their music is heavily influenced by bands such as Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Pearl Jam. They were set to start making music, but one thing was missing- another band mate; so in 2005 Todd Langlois joined the mix. With Jesse on rhythm guitar and lead vocals, Aaron on bass, light percussion and vocals, and Todd on lead guitar, percussion, and back-up vocals, the band could now focus on their song-writing and playing. For three years they bounced around from basement to basement working on their strong harmony based originals. In 2010, the boys picked up "the beat machine" Steve Lennon, who has brought the beats to every show.
The group is currently working on the release of their first album (Year at the Beach) which is set to be available the end of September. The album will include 11 all original songs and a bonus track, and they will soon have a single available to purchase on iTunes. The band’s aspiration is not to make it big, but to make the best music they possibly can.
