New York City can be loud, dense, and funky. It can make you smile and want to dance. It also has a unique beauty and energy. Funk Shui NYC plays music that represents this great metropolis. Listeners hear in the first note that the band enjoys playing together. After several years of playing in groups as sidemen, we - Dave Morgan and Rob Susman - saw an opportunity to make our own music that was current, relevant, intricate, and a blast.

We were able to attract players who are technically skilled and creatively minded. Oh yeah, we also didn't want to be so serious all the time. Funk Shui NYC is an 'all-star band' in the sense that its members have impressive performing credits, but the roster wasn't selected for status. The musicians are our friends, collaborators, and each other's fans. After a few years of playing in New York City night clubs, we decided to record some of the material. On Funk Shui NYC's ZOHO debut recording, Shark NATO on a Plane, you will hear new compositions, arrangements and solos that represent the pride, joy and humor of Funk Shui NYC's members.

Shark NATO on a Plane: Composer Rob Susman started with a pun laden title before any music was written. Inspired by Hollywood film comedy horror, its content is exaggerated until it reaches a farcical climax. The 1950's style radio jingle theme rhythmically turns on itself. The groove blends Latin, Rock and odd street beat rhythms. It's like Bo Diddley playing a Greek Wedding. This is a danceable tune if you don't think too much. Dave Morgan on baritone sax & Rob Susman on trombone are the soloists.

July Groove/September Funk: Noel Cohen and Dave Morgan co-authored this tribute to the slick funkiness of the seventies. Building from an easy rhythm section groove featuring Noel's sly guitar to a trombone/tenor tune, July/September reflects on the lazy days of summer meeting the first coolness of autumn. Bryan Davis' fiery trumpet and Charles Lee's soulful alto solos light up the track.

Press Quotes

Modern funk that mixes in some second line with the kitchen sink and serves up a fun time for today's ears that might not remember old school funk but are redefining it their own way. As big and bold as the crew itself behind it all, this is a wild ride that provides great thrills and spills as it rollicks it's way home. Great for shaking up tired blood.
