The Funky Seeds were planted in June of 2009 in the Burgs of St. Pete. The Funky Seeds blend several genres into what is now called “Plant Driven Funk”. “With rollicking guitars and keyboards, the group lives up to its name, in that they're incredibly funky and boogieable!” –Sean Daly, Tampa Bay Times
“The Funky Seeds infuse their infectious music with swaying reggae grooves, hip-shaking funk, organ-driven blues rock, and sax-drenched Latin jazz, their sound marked by the gruff and gritty vocal stylings of Steve Scarcliff and the expert keywork of Funky D.” –Leilani Polk, Creative Loafing
The Seeds have been busy in the studio too! They have recently released their second studio length album ‘Taking Root’. The Funky Seeds released their first album ‘Germination’ in 2010 featuring the hit singles ‘Pressure’ and ‘Shrink’. ‘Pressure’ and ‘Shrink both made it to the #1 spot on the Tampa Bay music charts and ‘Pressure’ was also one of the TOP TEN songs of 2010 on musictampabay.com.
Since the release of their first album, the Funky Seeds have been featured on WMNF 88.5, Rukus Radio, Indie 104 iRadio L.A., Indie Life Radio, New Music Tampa Bay, musictampabay.com, and The Bay Buzz.
The Funky Seeds have also played several festivals including SUNFEST, Orange Blossom Jamboree, Jambando and Bay Buzz Fest. See you at the next show!!
