What The Funk was staged by the Kingdom Theatre Company production in 2016, written by Press music columnist, John Murray.

It told the story of funk music and that glorious Hammond Organ sound, and paid tribute to the genre’s true greats from James Brown, , The MG’s, Motown, Sly & The Family Stone, Scotland’s very own Average White Band to Prince and Mark Ronson ... all packed into 40 minutes of live music, fully narrated with images of the era, and with plenty space for dancing.

The show is narrated by Jacqueline Ha nnah who also has performed with various companies throughout Scotland as well as working with Kingdom Theatre Company’s Fringe shows.

The second half of the show features Lights Out By Nine live on stage showcasing their out outstanding music of the past 30 years.
