Tweed Funk

Dec 4, 2015

Formed in Milwaukee in 2010, the six-piece soul and blues revue known as Tweed Funk plays a funked up, sexy live show that leaves fans screaming for more.  Tweed Funk is fronted by Joseph "Smokey" Holman who recorded under Curtis Mayfield in the early 70s.  As a member of Tweed Funk, Holman was honored as the 2013 Wisconsin Area Music Industry's Male Vocalist of the Year.  As a band, Tweek Funk has captured WAMI Awards for R&B/Soul Artist of the Year in 2012 and 2015.  With seven originals and four covers, "First Name Lucky" became Tweed Funk's third CD release in early 2014.  It received a nomination for a 2014 Blues Blast Music Award in the Soul Blues Album category.  Tweed Funk appeared at JazzFest 2015, presented by the Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues Society, on July 16.
