The Funky Uncle
FunkyUncle.live has presented livestream music shows every week since April raising money for musician and gig worker Covid Relief. We continue this music stream every week, presenting a live performance given free to the universe from the shelter of the one of a kind Mardi Gras’ float, the Funky Uncle Lounge.
Combined with musician interviews and outreach news in the vein of Soul Train or the Midnight Special, the hour and a half program streams on this website, Facebook Live, Youtube, and Twitch raising money through virtual donations, sponsorships and the sale of live Frenchy paintings. The resulting fund, The Funk Fund, is distributed to musicians and entertainment workers impacted economically or medically by COVID-19.
