Shanachie Entertainment is proud to announce the signing of classic R&B/Funk band ConFunkShun & will release the band’s first new studio album since their initial break up in 1986. ConFunkShun initially broke through in the “golden age” of self-contained R&B bands in the 1970’s, joining such ground-breaking ensembles as Earth, Wind & Fire, War, The Meters, Kool & The Gang, & many others as innovative hit-makers.
ConFunkShun had 25 chart singles from 1977-1986, including 5 Top Ten hits & sold millions of albums. The band broke up when Michael Cooper went solo in 1986; he enjoyed a successful solo career in the ensuing decade. After playing some successful performances in the new Millennium the band reunited with key members, including lead vocalists Michael Cooper & Felton Pilate.
The new album will be released in the Fall following a heavy touring schedule this Summer. This signals the true re-emergence of one of R&B’s greatest bands!!!
