What do you get when you see Ja-Funk live? An eclectic blend of soulful and funkifed grooves with influence’s of pop & rock.
When they’re not throwing down that greasy groove, they’re giving you a bluesy and smooth swinging experience. Overflowing with tasty piano and organ solos, super funky bass riffs and Sax solos that will blow your mind.
SB4 has incredibly compelling melodies and is fun to watch. With Seth’s crazy banter, you never know what is going to happen next, this band is not to be missed.

“I had the pleaser of working with Seth and his band (Ja-Funk) for 3 contracts on the Oasis of the Seas. Seth and his band filled the Jazz On 4 venue on a nightly basis, we’ve never had a jazz group that was able to do this. Seth always pushed his band to the limits, learning new material. I never had to worry about Seth or his venue, I wish we could get them back.”
