It’s finally summer again and that means that Tim is getting wrapped up with school for the semester. It also means that he’s getting back into playing and has started back up with his band Harmonautica. They have been playing off and on for the past couple of years, but this summer have already scheduled a bunch of up and coming shows. The band consists of:
Eric Blood – Bass / Lead Vocals
Josh Francis – Keyboard / Trumpet
Jimmy Hendricks (his real name) – Guitar
Tim Funk – Drums / Cajon
Tim started playing drums when he was nine years old and has since played in music ranging from jazz to rock, with a band named PDEX which took him on multiple tours throughout the west coast. Harmonautica came to be when Tim met Josh while working at Musician’s Friend in 2007. Josh introduced Tim to Eric when looking for a good jam band trio. Recently they adopted a guitarist named Jimmy Hendricks to add more versatility and depth to their soulful music.
They have played a few shows between then and now, but this summer are going to have a busy schedule with multiple shows lined up. The first big show of the summer will be at the Tahitian Noni Center in the Riverwoods in Provo (5151 N. 300 W. ) on June 12 at 7:00 pm. To hear their live album they have it posted on facebook and you can check that out by going to Harmonautica’s Facebook page. Their goal this summer is to have a full length album recorded and up for grabs. Hope everyone enjoys, and let the band know what you think of their music.
(Bravo to Tim on his first blog post on Sarah + Tim!!!)
