Primary Instrument: Sax, tenor

Born: April 30, 1988    

Funka-nima is an up and coming funk/groove group that is tearing up the music scene in and around Boston. Their latest CD, which should be available this winter, contains original tunes and arrangements by the band’s founder, Steve Brickman. After a long and complicated search for a band name, Steve settled on Funka-nima. In Portuguese, anima means “it livens up.” Combining this with the word “funk” yields Funka-nima’s mission: “to liven up the funk.” Steve Brickman, [saxaphone] Jake Sherman [fender rhodes & hohner clavinet] Kyle Miles, [electric bass] and Sheldon Thwaites, [drums] are a tight ensemble of like minded musicians who have mastered a skill that many of today’s groups lack: providing intellectual stimulation for the most avid jazz listener while keeping the crowd dancing well into the morning.
