Local Music Spotlight: The Funky Knuckles

October 22, 2021 | Deep Ellum Team

In most entertainment districts, Mondays are a day to recover and prepare for a busy week ahead. However, in Deep Ellum, there is no rest for live music lovers who make sure to never miss a Knuckaround Monday at Three Links! 

The Funky Knuckles are a world class jazz, funk, and vibe group composed of six members: Cedric Moore on drums, Phill Aelony on guitar, Ben Bohorquez on saxophone, Evan Weiss on trumpet, Kwinton Gray on keyboards, and Wes Stephenson on drums. Put together, this sextet brings the funk to Deep Ellum every Monday night.

Three Links on Elm Street has long been a staple for weeknight entertainment from some of the most talented and exciting local artists and their Monday night residency with the Funky Knuckles is no exception! For the past several years, patrons lucky enough to pass by Three Links’ open garage door can’t help but follow the energy emanating from a high-energy jazz-fusion Funky Knuckles’ set any given Monday night. The group brings musicality, energy, and originality every time they touch the stage and their Deep Ellum following proves that they’ve got the goods. 

Check out some of their live performances to see what the hype is all about and make your plans now to join the next Knuckaround Monday at Three Links!
