Yacht Club with Poppa Neptune Cancelled

Due to an unfortunate booking conflict, The Young Funk will not be joining Poppa Neptune tomorrow night at The Yacht Club in Iowa City, IA. We’re really bummed about this, but we’re already planning a date to reschedule the show. When those plans are final we’ll post here again! Sorry for the late notice friends…

We’ll be instead taking the night to rehearse for our Saturday night show in Carroll, IA at B&S Bar. We’re looking forward to playing for our family and friends in Carroll, and we’ve got some tricks up our funky sleeves. See you there!

We just put together a quick video of one of our new songs, ‘Spirits Raising’ from our performance on the 1st of December at The House of Bricks in Des Moines. Check it out, and subscribe to The Young Funk’s YouTube Channel!
