Tune in from 12-2 P.M. today for the Zest Pool on KCSB-FM 91.9, or KCSB.org, to listen to UCSB Battle of the Bands’ 2013 victor and sweet-singing sextet Alpha Phunk. This self-proclaimed “Sly Stone kind of R&B” group utilizes a smooth-talking MC, feisty female vocals, on point percussion, rhythmic strings, and a crowd-pleasing trumpet to keep the vibes moving to the funk grooving. Jonny Lipshin is hosting.

Alpha Phunk will also be playing Extravaganza next Sunday, May 19th!
