They are, unquestionably, among the heroes of Funk with romantic ballads and dance-party hits galore.  Memorable melodies, inventive horn arrangements and clav-guitar woven grooves, make the group absolutely essential to the evolution of funk. They charted four consecutive Gold’s and one Platinum album. Their 20 hit singles included 8 Top Ten R&B Hits and one #1 R&B smash.

A new round of funk came when they contributed two new tracks to “United We Funk AllstarsCompilation” (and Tour) including GAP’s Charlie Wilson, Rick James, Dazz Band, RogerTroutman, SOS Band, Barkay’s, and The System. In addition to the band’s schedule, Michael Cooper has released. Band member Pilate emerged as a multi-platinum record producer in his own right for his award-winning production on M.C.

Look for the LATEST CONFUNKSHUN CD “MORE THAN LOVE”

More Than Love is an exciting chapter in the evolution of ConFunkShun. For over two
decades they have found a way into our hearts and ears with their timeless and funky
anthems and memorable slow jams. The new album is a testament to their staying power
and ability to deliver music that is right on time and in the pocket. Michael Cooper sums
up the secret to their success simply: “ConFunkShun is still all about Funk ‘N Love. That’s
what we’ve always promoted.”
