Primarily a 6 piece instrumental Acid Jazz outfit playing eclectic tunes from the 60/70s genre right up to contemporary jazz funk. Performed by a line up of potentially Birmingham's best musicians, creating a groove that captivates an audience. Founded in February 2012 in the back streets of Harborne, the band is a coming together of mainly two groups who have collaborated in sessions with each other over the years as part of the music fraternity around Birmingham and the west midlands. With appearances at major festivals and top quality venues the band has a wealth of experience and all cut their teeth with established musicians and collectives in many genre's of music, bringing these influences into Funk Ghetto's performance.
Grace Brown is a young highly talented vocalist from the cool streets of Moseley. She has extensive performing experience for her age and raises the bar when performing with any band she sings with.

Grace is one of Funk Ghetto's esteemed guest vocalist who will be performing with them.
