Purple Funk Metropolis

Purple Funk Metropolis is a charismatic six-piece instrumental band with a lively sound inspired by rock, jazz, funk, and old-school soul. With driving melodies at the forefront of the groove they build the party from the ground up with every performance. Whether in a Como basement or a downtown dive bar, Purple Funk's energy notoriously gets the whole room dancing.

From the raw energy of Morsels (May 2017) to the explosive, vintage sounds of Mumbojumbotron (July 2018) and the artisan-woven Magic Carpet (December 2018), the many flavors of Purple Funk leave your palette cleansed and thirsty for more. Currently in the studio working on new tunes, rest assured PFM is always keeping it silly, keeping it light, keeping it funky, keeping it tight.
