Starting as a college band in 2012 at the University of Alabama, the band got their first big break when they got the opportunity to open for 90’s American rock band, DISPATCH, at Costa Greekfest in their home town of Tuscaloosa in early 2013. When Josh Ferrell of MOTHER.FUNK asked Chad Stokes of DISPATCH the best piece of advice he could offer, Chad simply said, “Just give your music out for free to anybody that will listen.”
And that’s what they did.
Since the adoption of that philosophy and the release of their debut album, Coastal, the band has received critical acclaim and has become a widely sought after band in the south east. 2014 saw the band offering up opening support for a wide array of musical acts such as Corey Smith, Wiz Khalifa, Moon Taxi, the Revivalists & Zoogma.
The four members of MOTHER.FUNK have all relocated to Nashville, TN where they are currently working on their next album with plans to tour in the Fall of 2017.
