Funky Organ are Thom Whitworth (guitar and trumpet), Paul Deats (organ), Dave Shields (bass guitar) and Stevie Smith (drums). Having performed together in many different lineups, the group became a regular fixture at Lincoln University’s Jazz sessions. With an obvious shared respect and enjoyment for the infectious, spontaneous results of these meet ups, Funky Organ has established itself as a firm favourite at LPAC, and excited audiences at Peggy’s on opening night and New Year’s Eve.

Playing funk influenced compositions from Jimmy Smith to Bob Reynolds, as well as the organ swing of Larry Young, or funk-era Herbie Hancock and Grant Green. Expect contagious funk, soulful Hammond swing and explosive grooves
