Description 
When it comes to exciting music, showmanship and an ongoing mission to bring the funk to the people, no one does this better than the Universal Funk Orchestra. Fronted by DJ Dizzlephunk (Family Gang, American Jesus, Unit Shifters), UFO's current line-up is a veritable who's who of their current scene, while retaining the familial ties of the past. From the positive rapid-fire raps
of Brian B-True (Beebs and Her Money Makers, Windchime, Horizen), the smooth-to-greasy Saxophone work of Joe Capati (The Mellow Relics, Gary Lazer Eyes), the energetic drumming of Chris LeBrane (Family Gang, Kaleigh Baker and NEM, The Aristocracy), to the frenetic kinetic guitar power of The Jester (Family Gang, Jester Royale, Tears of a Tyrant), Universal Funk Orchestra's sonic drive reaches far into many different genres.

As a live band, UFO is a spectacle to be witnessed.

As a fixture in the Americana scene and constant presence in the support of his fellow artists Mike has a holistic approach to rock n’ roll creativity through photography, videography and event production. “It’s all part of the story, the music comes first but everything around it helps tell the message.” That message is loud and clear in Dunn’s new tunes and fortunately for the rest of us, this is a rock ’n roll party with Americana grit and power pop hooks we’re all welcome to attend.
