It doesn’t feel like you’re watching an instrumental band…you don’t have to be a instrumental music head or a funk head or a jazz head to, to have a good time…

Andrew Tomten

Saxophonist, Purple Funk Metropolis

We chatted with Andrew Tomten, saxophonist for Purple Funk Metropolis, we discussed origins in music, the path from jazz to funk, and the origins of this seven-piece instrumental band.

Catch them LIVE AT Mid West Music Fest in Winona, MN!
