Well how is everyone? Thank you again so much for your support! 2009 has been a busy, progressive year for A Funk Above The Rest! We were featured on Channel 9 News in february, given an official endorsement by Motown-Universal Music Enterprises, Funky Town Grooves out of London England and The Arkiteks Music group sponsored by McDonalds for support and giveaway's of CDz/DVDz on the "live" broadcast. Due to our support of independent artists, I was picked to be a judge for the R&B portion of songs nominated in the "Independent Music Awards."

I have also been invited to attend The L.A.Music Awards Show Nov 12 as a guest of Aysha, who is gaining more and more attention on a major national and international level. We are proud to have exposed her to our faithful audience.

The year 2010 will bring even more to the show. We will introduce a new segment called "funk it or junk it" as well as recognize "youths who make a difference" in our schools and communities! Yes, we are the show with a "local feel but international appeal!"

Thank you so much for helping to make it all happen! U R truly appreciated!

The award-winning show (Best of Westword 2008) "The 1ST School of Funk" continues its series at Jazz@Jacks every Tuesday night from 8-11pm. The program is hosted by KUVO radio personality Skip The Funktologist, whose music show "A Funk Above The Rest", can be heard Saturday nights from 11pm-1am right here on jazz89 KUVO (89.3FM). Due to the show's popularity, it is now syndicated on both terrestrial and internet stations in New York, Orlando, Los Angeles and Atlanta.

Westword's Best of 2008

Best Funk Night (2008)
1st School of FunkJazz@Jack's

500 16th St.

Skip Reeves isn't called the "Funktogolist" for nothing. Dude knows his funk, which becomes obvious when you listen to his Saturday-night show on KUVO, "A Funk Above the Rest." He's working overtime spreading the funk gospel, and in his quest to make Denver one city under a groove, he's been hosting the 1st School of Funk every other Tuesday at Jazz@Jack's. There, in addition to laying down everything from Larry Graham and Funkadelic to the Gap Band and Kool & the Gang, Reeves also brings in some the city's finest funk outfits, such as Soul School and Funkiphino.

Well, everyone,
Since our last news item, so much has happened. Once again, I want to express my sincere thanx and appreciation for those of you who support, KUVO Jazz Radio 89.3 and the music show, "A Funk Above The Rest"! Because of our strong interest in exposing Independent Artists, Colours TV has recognized that there is a tremendous void in giving these deserving artists a larger audience. So with their support, we have signed on to do a 1/2 hour program to be called, A Funk Above The Rest Presents: "The Independent Artist Showcase"! We hope to air our 1st show in late November. So please stay on the lookout for it on Dish Network Channel 9407. Time slot is yet to be determined.
