2. When and how did Funked Up start?

Funked Up was created during the summer of 2008 after a day of riding BMX in our home town Abbekås, when Charlie asked Mårten if he wanted to play some covers. The same summer, Dennis broke Pelle’s leg after many intense games on Abbekås soccer field, which put Pelle in a wheelchair, where he gained an interest in playing the bass. Charlie, Mårten and Pelle started to play together, but were missing a drummer.

After using a drum machine on a keyboard for some time, the three of them asked Charlie’s brother Dennis if he would like to become their drummer.  Dennis, who had never touched a drum set, learned incredibly fast. And that’s how it all started.

SONJA SKIBDAHL + FUNKED UP

Friday, April 27th, Malmö: Another amazing music night at STPLN with the crowdfunded concept The Night Starts Here.

A gig was suggested for Sonja Skibdahl and Funked Up and over 20 of their fans got together to make it happen. The result? A fun night in the always cozy atmosphere with a lot of great music.

Anna Tenfält and Josefine Trilhamn welcomed the crowd and kept music playing at all times, with great indie pop beats.

On stage, Sonja Skibdahl‘s music transcended the lyrics: between Swedish and Finish, it was a personal sound that could speak to our hearts. An intimate start followed by her witty guitar and warm personality.

On a bit different pace, Funked Up took the stage and it was loud and good: groovy music that got everybody on their feet and wishing for more! There was crazy energy on stage on a sound that felt much more mature than their look. Oh yes: they know how to set the tone for a party.
