It has been my Fortune to have witnessed the Fantastic 'Phenomenon' that is Project F at many a Function. They are Furiously Funky, Fabulously Fun, and, and.... and....OK I've run out of F words? If you haven't seen them, WHY NOT??? They're the tightest funk band for many a mile, perhaps in the world 😎🤗❤️
