Amsterdam Funk Orchestra

The largest funkband in the Netherlands was founded in 2014 by Efraïm Trujillo (musical director) and Matthijs Klinkert (lead alt) and is now the fastest rising star in the clubs, both in the jazz and the pop circuit.

Amsterdam Funk Orchestra plays classic funk and afrofunk, specially written and arranged for this band by Efraïm Trujillo. The orchestra knows her classics and of course plays pieces by, among others, Fela Kuti. With a big rhythm section with double percussion Amsterdam Funk Orchestra is a band that makes you dance!

Concerts with saxophonist Benjamin Herman, singer Steffen Morrison, singer Denise Jannah and guitarist Anton Goudsmit and establish our name and live reputation. On October 14, 2017 the band released their first album, titled Pure Fiction. These recordings have been made possible by a successful crowdfunding campaign at Voordekunst.

Amsterdam Funk Orchestra is a spectacular, festive and especially danceable band that turns every party upside down!
