爲放客兄弟FunkyBrothers首張專輯催生:

我們是一個沒有唱片公司的全獨立樂團,到2012年就成軍五年了。
從一開始的四人編制團體,漸漸演變成為一組帶有管樂編制的10人大樂團,我們一點一滴的耕耘著這個難得的樂團,每年一到申請補助的時期,依然交出自己最滿心誠意的企劃書和期待,雖然最後仍是惘然,但我們從不放棄。

這幾年來,我們一點一點的成長,一點一點的進步,即便爹不疼娘不愛,沒有靠山的背景,也沒有靠海的勢力,但我們很清楚,身邊支持我們的人越來越多,深愛我們,期待我們用音樂餵養他們的人,也一直默默的在每場表演中,以出席表達支持。我們希望能向他們以及世人,交出一張作品。

能呈現一張完整的作品集。是我們一直期待達到的目標,更是所有做音樂的人,想要完成的事。錄音可以隨便,也可以認真,但許多愛我們的人期待我們發片,因為她們愛我們,所以我們不可以隨便,也不想隨便。

我們需要募集35萬來執行首張專輯的錄音,製作,實品生產,發行以及首賣演唱會。這個計畫不僅是為了實行專輯的錄製發行,同時也是為了兌現對樂迷的承諾和期待,更想打破樂團僅能靠和政府拿錢來發專輯的輪迴。

專輯錄製完畢後,發行計畫及巡演計畫將接著開跑,這不會是張製作完畢故事就到尾生的計畫,這將會成為一個獨立樂團生涯開始的起點!

放客兄弟同時也期待在交出首張專輯之後,台灣音樂市場上能多出另一種型態的樂團,另一種風格的音樂,正式走進台灣音樂圈!

關於放客兄弟

我們是Funky Brothers(放客兄弟)-你可以控制住你的身體,但控制不住你的心!一個不只給你無法自主的律動,還要給你無法忘記感動的樂團

從2007年開始成軍,主要將 70~80年代具有FUNKY精神的各種音樂類型融入其創作風格當中,從Funk/Disco/Blues到Nu-Jazz/Acid-jazz/R&B/Regga/Swing…放客兄弟的音樂創作永遠充滿groove(律動) 從感性到激昂,Funky Brothers用熱情令人想舞動的音符和節奏,表達對人群,對世界,對自我,對情感,對你對我的思維。

我們希望透過音樂,讓大家走進毫無拘束的叢林,我們不在乎世俗的眼光,不在乎社會的繫絆,也試圖用音樂爲聆聽者卸下心中的柵欄,解放每個人都有如野獸般的狂野自在。不只帶著充滿搖擺氣息的音符,在旋律線的背後,我們更堅持音樂的感動,歌詞的力量。「你可以控制住你的身體,但控制不住你的心!」跟著放客兄弟解放你的身心,跟著節奏一起擺動身軀。

五年來,我們歷經各大live house及音樂祭,河岸留言,The Wall,Revolver,海洋音樂祭小舞台,春天吶喊等。曾與Matzka,趙一豪,董事長樂團等前輩樂團同台演出,2012年更與日本前衛樂團Trippple Nipples一同受邀,擔任城市游牧影展開幕派對演出樂團。

CROWD FUNDING PROJECT for the Funky Brothers' debut Album

 

We are a totally independent band, free from record company or any other obligation, and it's been like this for 5 years already!

From the original 4 members, the band gradually grew up by incorporating the brass section, up to the now 10 musicians’ formation. Little by little, the Funky Brothers have kept going further all along through hard work and intense motivation to bring out this locally one of a kind band.  But every year when it comes to the time to apply for the government subsidies, our sincerity and hopes always turn into disappointment. But we never gave up!

 

Through the years we can feel maturity and improvement in all ways, even though ignored by the main actors of the industry or cultural development, even though we don't have the support of large influence circles or rich patrons, we have seen

More and more people around us, supporting us, expecting us and our music, our performances, being there every time every gig, coming again and expressing the warmest support a band can expect!

That is why we want to thank them and we want to keep sharing this music, this feeling to them, but also to everybody! And this goes through first producing albums!

 

Through producing complete pieces of work, representative of what we can do. This has been our goal for a long time already, just like anyone who plays music. It could be done lightly, but it can be done seriously too. Considering all these people loving us and cheering us, it is obvious that we can't allow ourselves to record a cheap production. They want, and we want to give them, a quality work.

 

In order to produce an album, we need to collect $350,000 NT, which includes recording, mastering, pressing, designing, publishing and selling costs. This is a lot of money but that's the minimum to honor the commitment and the expectations of any audience, and to prove that we can do something of that quality without any help from the government.

 

After the recording and the publishing of the album, the Brothers will go on tour to celebrate this achievement and to complete the full process. This won't be the end of a project, but the new start of an indie band!

 

The Funky Brothers also really hope that this achievement can help the music industry in Taiwan to open and propose new ways for the bands to emerge and to as well as to propose more various styles of music, in order to prove how rich is the Taiwanese scene !

 

About the Funky Brothers

 

 

We are the Funky Brothers(放客兄弟)-

You can control your body, but you can't control your heart! A band that will provide you a groove that you can't resist, and memories that you can't forget!

 

Formed in 2007, the Funky Brothers get their inspiration from the 70~80’s, the golden age of Funk, Soul and Disco. Add some Blues, R&B, Acid Jazz or Reggae and that will give you a taste of what the Brothers mix to have the audience dance into their borderless world. The power – we might as well say the magic- of the Funky Brothers is based on a friendly groove and dedicated to anyone, to everybody, to the world, to you, to us all.

 

The band is fronted by two awesome and completely different singers: Threestones, raising sitting crowds with his skill through his craziness, and Airy sharing her warmth with her powerful voice and charming smile. The Rhythmic section is based on the precision and creativity of drummer Guojin and bassist Yingmu. The multifaceted guitarist Andy brings some psychedelic feeling with his solos, whatever style it could be. And to complete the funky sound, the brass section of the Funky Brothers blows some color into the music.

Welcome to the family!

 

During 5 years we got to enter many of the Live Houses and festivals all around Taiwan, like the Spring Scream, the Ho hai yan festival, the Tainan May Jam, Riverside, Revolver, the Wall, Pipe Live Music; we had the chance to play on the same stage together with other artists like Matzka, avant-garde Japanese band Trippple Nipples, or our precursors the Chairman, Sissey Chao, etc...
