Enter the Beat and Get Your Funk On

Fresh off their Juno nomination for R&B/Soul Recording of the Year for their second album, We Can All Be Free, God Made Me Funky (GMMF) is celebrating the release of their third album, Enter the Beat at The Opera House tonight.

Formed in 1996, GMMF's music is a mash-up of funk, rap, rock and R&B. While their musical influences include Stevie Wonder, James Brown, Parliament Funkadelic, Marvin Gaye and Prince, they've got a vibe all their own.

Their energetic stage presence brings their music to life. This is music that's meant to be experienced live. It'll get you dancing. If you've never been to a GMMF show, you've never danced. Or, as chartattack put it, "If you can't dance to God Made Me Funky, you can't dance."

Become a NuFunktonian tonight and get your funk on. Tonight's show, presented by nufunk.ca also features Jason Palma, D.O. Holder and J Swift at The Opera House (735 Queen Street East) tonight. Doors at 9 p.m. $10.
