FUNK40K is made up of DJ’s Griz & Honey. They began their music careers separately, met in 2001 and got married in 2007. They are both from the New York City suburbs.
Griz has been collecting vinyl and spinning house music since 1994 – he has played events ranging from college house parties, packed nightclubs and international music festivals. He was known as DJ T-All for most of his career and performed alongside Brooklyn’s Mr. Danomyte as the Avenging Disko Godfatherz all over the east coast.
Honey is a classically trained musician and avid collector turned DJ. She has been performing since the age of 7. She began her DJ career in the mid 90’s on college radio and began working in broadcast radio in New York City in 1997. In 2001, Honey met Griz & Danomyte, joined the Avenging Disko Godfatherz and fell in love with Chicago House Music.
In 2007, Griz & Honey relocated to San Diego and began spinning as FUNK40K. They bring a unique blend of New York City club culture achieved from years of… eh-hem… research in the field of body rockin’ beats, coupled with a passion for Chicago thump and West Coast soul. They have an unmatched ability to rock any crowd and drop the perfect record for the moment – their presence and personality is undeniable and has been called infectious and intoxicating.
FUNK40K can be seen weekly on The-Lost-Art.com and at various venues all over the country.
We mix house music using turntables and have been since the mid 90′s.
