Funkadelic Astronaut is a New Jersey based Funktronica group.  Initially formed in 2013 as a duo, the group has gone through multiple lineups in the never-ending search for the perfect sound.  Currently the band consists of Keyboardist Ryan Gavin, Drummer Kevin O’Neill, and Bassist Sam Luba.

The band is known for their heavy improvisational style: mixing intricate compositions with extended jam sections, never playing a song the same way twice. Drawing on inspirations from classic funk bands and present day electronica, Funkadelic Astronaut blends the best of both worlds to provide a unique sound known as “Funktronica”.

The group remains committed to their ongoing mission of bringing their “A-game” to their true passion-moving people with their music.

In 2017, Funkadelic Astronaut released their first EP as a full live band titled “Emergency Exit”.

In 2018, the band released their second EP titled “Magrathea”.
