About

Hi!

We're George and Will, two graduates hailing from Newcastle University, UK. We've spent the past year trying to build The Funk and Soul Revue - aimed at funk and soul connoisseurs and newbies alike. We also love introducing folks of our generation to the Funk, Soul, Disco and Motown greats. When we set out to create the Funk and Soul Revue, we did so because we wanted to create an online home for this music that speaks to so many people. 

Quick history: This time last year the Revue didn't even exist. Over the past year, we've been fortunate enough to secure interviews with some fantastic classic artists and have the immense pleasure of meeting and hearing exciting new artists coming out today as well. Some of our readers asked us for recommendations on classic songs to listen to, so we created the Collections subsite with the aim of creating some ready-made playlists to pick up and go. This site continues to expand, and rather excitingly, we're starting to get guest musicians and artists to suggest their favourite collections of songs too.

Why the Funkraiser? 

Firstly, the money will help us to maintain our current server costs.

Secondly, however, we want to try something a bit different. We want to create a community site for funk and soul lovers alike - a site where you can sign up, have your own little profile, and interact with others on the site, as well as hear about gigs and new bands starting out. In time, we hope to build this community to incorporate music fans, musicians themselves, music venues - a social media site specifically for Funk and Soul lovers where we can all meet and share the genres we love. 

Your kind donations will be therefore also be going to our expansion for this new Community site through server costs and web design.

If you have any questions about this project, please ask us on here or on our contact us page: http://bit.ly/1QwQzm8

Please help us in any way you can to bring the Funk and Soul communities that are fragmented over the internet together under one roof, and enable us to keep spreading the funky word.

Risks and challenges

George and Will are the only two people working on the Funk and Soul Revue.

We're trying our best to do as much as we can with two people. Getting the Revue to this stage has taken time, and we would love to keep growing.

Please help us to achieve more by donating!

We're always looking for help - if you'd like to write for us, in English or in code, then please get in touch: http://bit.ly/1QwQzm8
