Trunk Funk Sound System

Trunk Funk Sound System was born out of the legendary Kumfy Klub parties in the late 90s and early 00s, where DJ Smiley and percussionist JD (Jonathan Dalwitz) would often perform together as the headline/closing act of the night playing an energetic mix of bassline driven house, breaks and big beats.

The duo’s popularity grew and high profile bookings at the Adelaide Festival clubs such as Lola’s Pergola (2014) and Persian Garden (2008) followed. However, in the last few years has seen the duo pursue individual gigs and projects and perform less often together.

That is all about to change with a new energy being devoted to the Trunk Funk project. Smiley has armed himself with a stack of new global house, worldly grooves and killer edits & remixes. He has also added bongos, shakers and MC duties to his repertoire. JD is primed and ready to set the dance floor alight with his extensive percussive setup and there will be special guest sax and horn players joining the ranks regularly.

Look out in 2019 as Trunkfunk Goes Tropical with global house, disco flavours and worldly grooves aplenty.
Positive vibes guaranteed!
