Dylan Slattery The Funky Knuckles have come out with their Senior Album bringing their tasty improvisations to a new plateau! Everybody brought in amazing results but special shoutout to Wes who put out some of the finest bass work on this album! Props to the whole band on a mouth watering closing on the Bombastic Groovy Acid Fusion Suite Digital Compromise where I had my face melted and sold to the finest chef for how thoroughly cured it was by this album. Second fave is Stormcrow. Favorite track: Digital Compromise.

The Funky Knuckles belong to a new generation of improvising musicians, challenging the constraints of genre, but never losing sight of the groove. This is not your typical funk band... or jam band... or jazz band. The Funky Knuckles are something different entirely. This is the improvised music of the new generation, and it is continuously being re-defined, even as it is performed.

In recent years, Texas has gained a reputation as a hotbed for groove-oriented improvised music, and The Funky Knuckles have been a part of that movement for over a decade. It is a common occurrence to hear world-class musicians sitting in at their weekly residency in Dallas, and band members can be seen as sidemen with Janet Jackson, Stanley Clarke, and Larry Carlton.

The Funky Knuckles are releasing their fourth album, “Delicious” in November 2019 on Ropeadope, and will be touring domestically around the release.
