Kluster Phunk is a 5 piece reggae funk band that thrives on improvisation and musical exploration. They have developed a large following throughout the Northeast due to their soulful original music and high energy stage presence. By sharing stages with members of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong and bands such as Consider the Source, Lespecial, Flux Capacitor and many others, they have begun to develop a name for themselves in the "Jam Band" community and are quickly gaining traction as an up and coming original band.
Formed in early 2016 out of Wilkes-Barre, PA, Kluster Phunk's founding member Silas Farrow (Guitar) began piecing together the band while he attended college in Nanticoke, PA. With the goal of playing original and improvisational music that got its audience up on the dance floor, he quickly convinced his longtime friend James Morrissey to play guitar and front the band. What started out as an acoustic duo quickly turned into an electric jam band with a rotating cast of musicians that would include percussionists, pianists and drummers, with James and Silas at the core. Throughout 2016 and 2017, the band went through many incarnations until they found their first patch of solid ground when they approached Sean Hodge to fill the keyboard/synth position and Warren Charles on drums. Shortly after, the next change occurred in January 2018 when Justin Sollenne stepped in on Bass, and finally with Jovon Jordan on drums after Warren left for the Navy.
The real work began after the band settled on its members. With an already semi-developed following around the Northeast region, Kluster Phunk further solidified its hold by getting heavily involved in the summer music festival scene. Sharing the stage with bands such as Goose, Flux Capacitor, Peter Prince and Moon Boot Lover and playing with members of Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, they realized they were gaining traction in the industry and needed to capitalize on their progress. Now they are developing a following in key rooms in the jam band scene such as The River Street Jazz Cafe, Sprout Music Collective, Stella Blues and many more.
With Kluster Phunk’s release of their debut album “Two Blue Buddies,” they are carving their own path to being a household name in the jam scene.
