ABOUT

Musician, artist, believer, dreamer, and visionary Scott Plesha is on a mission to bring a new kind of funk, groove, and love from the streets of Chicago to intimate porches, houses, and venues across the USA--and eventually the world--with the hope of creating a scene where the divide between musicians and fans no longer exists.

By combining groovy acoustic rhythms with old-school funk/hip-hop textures, dance-floor ready beats and bluesy vocals--Plesha has created something entirely new with his project The Funk Yes!

Inquire within and join the revolution. Let's get the real party started.
