United Funk Order

T&T AND THE UNITED FUNK ORDER WERE FOUNDED BY THULANI AND TECKDADDY. THIS WAS THE RESULT OF TWO PEOPLE SEEKING THE SAME MUSICAL GOAL AT ONCE IN CYBERSPACE. THE GOAL WAS GOOD MUSIC. THEY FOUND THEMSEVES ASKING…. WHERE IS THE GOOD MUSIC?? THE REAL MUSIC OF OLD. FUNKY, ROCKIN” BRINGING IT FROM YOUR TOES” MUSIC. THULANI AND TECKDADDY (T&T) FOR YEARS HAVE PERFORMED AND RECORDED FOR OTHER COMPANIES AND GROUPS SEPERATELY BEFORE THEY MET.

WITH EXTENSIVE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE WRITING AND PERFORMING; THEY TO THEIR SURPRISE HIT IF OFF VERY WELL PROFESSIONALLY... UNDERSTANDING THE NEED FOR A FUNKIER WORLD THUS GAVE BIRTH TO….“THE UNITED FUNK ORDER˝.

TECKDADDY WITH HIS RESPECT TO PIONEERS SUCH AS: LARRY GRAHAM, RICK JAMES AND PARLIAMENT; LAYS DOWN THE MUSICAL FOUNDATION AS WELL AS THE HEAVY BOTTOM GROOVES THAT SUBSTANTIATES "THE FUNK". THULANI WITH HER RESPECT TO PIONEERS TO SUCH AS: CHAKA KHAN AND RUFUS, JOYCE "BABY JEAN" KENNEDY, FROM MOTHERS FINEST, MANDRILL AND JIMMY HENDRIX, KEEPS THE ROCK EDGE ALIVE IN THE MUSICAL ARRANGEMENTS AND LAYING OF HER VOCALS.

RECRUITING LONG TIME FRIEND AND GUITARIST, TECKDADDY -(PARALLEL) CALLED UPON LACHO- (INDIGO) TO HELP HOLD DOWN THE RHYTHM AND PLAY LEAD GUITAR WHICH HE DOES SO WELL. THULANI LOOKIN FOR VOCAL SUPPORT CALLED ON HER LONG TIME FRIENDS KATHERINE JOYCE REILLY-(VIXEN) AND TANYA COOK - (LIONESS) WHO BOTH BRING TO THE GROUP THAT GOSPEL/FUNK VIBE AND THAT “LABELL” SOUND THAT THULANI WAS LOOKING FOR AND BRINGING THULANI'S BACKGROUND VOCAL ARRANGEMENTS TO HARMONIC DELIGHT. DRUMMER DENIS-(THUNDA) BRINGING THAT GROOVE AND ROCK/FUNK FOUNDATION AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST KEYBOARDIST ADAM HOLZMAN- (BUCKADAMS) WHO HAS PLAYED AND TOURED WITH SUCH GREATS AS MILES DAVIS, GROVER WASHINGTON AND WAYNE SHORTER.

“THESE GUYS ARE DAMN FUNKY AND ROCK JUST AS HARD, OLD SCHOOL IS BACK CHURCH OUT, STEP BACK AND DIG AS THEY DO IT TO YOU IN YOUR EARHOLE AND PUTTIN THEY CYBERFOOT IN IT”.

AS THEIR CARTOON COUNTERPARTS SAY WHEN THEY ARE ABOUT TO GO INTO BATTLE “LETS GET FUNKY!”
