Warfield Concert Picnic Time with the Funky Dawgs


By Philly Rains

Helena, Arkansas – The Warfield Concert Series is excited to announce that the Funky Dawgs will be playing and singing at our annual picnic on the grounds of PCCUA at 6 PM on May 26, 2024.

The Funky Dawgs are one of the premier touring acts on the live music scene today. It is impossible not to enjoy yourself during a show as they play a contagious, upbeat mix of original music, hip-hop, funk, and today’s top hits with a brass twist. Emerging from Connecticut, they have toured internationally and have been featured in all corners of the live music scene. From playing sold-out shows at Madison Square Garden as the horn section for Dispatch, to Okeechobee, to closing out The Peach Music Festival, their performances flow seamlessly from EDM festivals to jam band festivals. They were also recently featured multiple times on nationally televised programming on ESPN (house band for the March Madness Tournament Challenge, opening segment of First Take) as well as on the Hulu and FX hit series “Fargo” starring Chris Rock.

The Funky Dawgs are dropping jaws. These high-energy horns have been featured with Dispatch, Tower of Power, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, Galactic, Sammy Rae & The Friends, Lawrence, Vulfpeck, We The Kings, Pigeons Playing Ping Pong, Snarky Puppy, The Soul Rebels, Lettuce, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Rebirth Brass Band, Twiddle, and the list continues.

When the band is not playing shows, they are giving back to the community. The Funky Dawgs aim to connect, engage, inspire, and rejuvenate music education in inner-city schools across the country. The band frequently gives performances and master classes to young musicians in elementary, middle, and high schools across the region.

Come see what all the hype is about. Ain’t no party like a Funky Dawgz party, ‘cause a Funky Dawgz party don’t stop!
