The Funky Jandals

Funky Jandal and the Murray Brothers (AKA The Funky Jandals) are relatively new onto the NZ blues scene, but the band members are certainly not!

Henry ‘The Funky Jandal’ Beattie (furious 3, the legacy band, juice on the loose and rsb) holds the groove of the band down on drums and vocals backed up by brothers Warwick and Stafford Murray on various guitars, uke and harmonica.  Henry has been gigging for over 25 years and is known both domestically and internationally for his incredibly funky drumming and distinctive soulful voice.

Warwick has played in most continents of the world and has brought out several solo albums and recently enjoyed chart success with the Strait Shooters (‘That’s all we have time for’ March 2017 No. 20) and The Fabulous Murray Brothers (‘Sing it Chap’ January 2018 No.6) in the NZ domestic chart.

Having played for many bands in Britain and Europe for the past 30 years, Stafford moved to NZ in January 2017 and subsequently joined the Fabulous Murray Brothers (along with Aaron Nonoa and Mark Thomas of the Strait Shooters and Rusty AZ) and featured on the ‘Sing it Chap’ CD and has been playing extensively up and down the North Island since!

The ‘Funky Jandals’ will play soulful mix of funk and blues, with 3 part vocal harmonies and a huge array of musical instruments on show!!!
