Bay Music and Entertainment performer The Funtouchables See below for Videos

The Funtouchables are the ultimate band for any party and have been a hit in the clubs around S.F and the Bay Area for many years. Their extensive song list includes surf classics including the Beach Boys and Jimmy Buffet, hits from the Beatles, Rolling Stones, and Stevie Wonder to name a few. If variety is what you looking for, The Funtouchables are the group for you! Comprised of some of the best musicians in the Bay Area, the Funtouchables blend three different “specialty bands” into one, covering songs from over seven decades!

Together for over 15 years, the band plays songs from the ’30’s to today’s contemporary hits. They not only sound convincingly like the originals, but also are great to watch as they combine dancing, comedy, exceptional musical ability and audience participation to make a fun and entertaining concert and dance. In 1993, the band (who also go by the name Shark Sandwich) won the top award for “the Best Unsigned Band in San Francisco” by Live 105 FM radio station.

Whether you want jazz standards, 50s, 60s, 70s disco, 80s, 90s or rock and roll, The Funtouchables will customize their play list and band size to your occasion. It’s no wonder that they are chosen for events time and time again. Members of the band have backed up or played in concert with: Chris Issak, Warren Zevon, Marshal Crenshaw, Chuck Berry, Frankie Avalon, Mary Wells, The Drifters, Jerry Lee Lewis, Suzanne Sommers, Ronnie Milsap, Ronnie Montrose, Ray Charles, The Marvelettes, The Harry James Orchestra, Wolfman Jack, The Platters, Maria Muldaur and Micky Hart to name a few.

With audience participation and veteran musicians at the helm and a huge song list spanning decades, your guests can be assured of a successful event. All of the members sing and put on an energetic and fun show, packing the dance floor with every performance.

“Everyone had a fantastic time and the band was great!! I’ve heard good feedback from everyone. At one point, the crowd got a little too caught up and jumped on stage to sing their own number, but the band seemed to handle that well…. Thanks again for all of your help and for recommending such a great band!” Regan Lebherz, Lisi

“Clint and I are still reveling in the magic. You and the band did so much to help create the pizazz of our special day. We can’t thank you enough. Shark Sandwich will always be the first band we recommend. People started dancing on the first song, and didn’t stop until they kicked us out! We’ll treasure the memories always…” Nicole and Clint

“JR and the crew of Shark Sandwich. YEAH!! We love you guys! Thanks for rocking our wedding…we had a blast” Matt and Krista S

“The group LOVED the Funtouchables! The band was really great. Played the perfect mix of music and the guests that got to play “rock star” loved it. People kept commenting all evening how great the band was. They were also very professional and engaging and really kept the energy level up. As always, it was a pleasure working with you. Thank you for suggesting the Funtouchables. They were the perfect end to a great event.” Pearl Lopez w/Goldman Sachs
