With a smooth bassline by Björn Orri Sæmundsson and jazz guitar, compliments of Pétur Jónsson, Sölvi Rögnvaldsson funks it up on the drums and Bergur Þórisson and Björgvin Ragnar Hjálmarsson top it off with their very funky trombone- and tenor saxophone-playing. There‘s no way you‘ll not be loving Fönksveinar!
The jazz/funk band Fönksveinar, which loosely translates to Funkboys is a rythmic, jazz, funk quintet composed of young boys from Seltjarnarnes. They have been playing in its present form for a few years, have funked Icelanders all over the country and are far from stopping.
Their jazz will make you feel like christmas morning and as warm as the just-out-of-the-oven christmas cookies and their funk will make you want to buy new sunglasses, a new suit and never stop dancing. There is absolutely no way you‘ll not be loving FÖNKSVEINAR!
