The family core of TJ Funk, consisting of Chris, Jesse, and Ronnie Casas, began performing together in the spring of 1984 with their band Mystique. In the year 2000, Chris began managing and renamed the group TJ Funk. The band has always taken pride in the ability to appeal to the masses by performing covers of a variety of dance music. With its signature horn section, TJ Funk has strong roots in R&B/Funk, Country, Classic Rock, and Disco. When the occasion calls, the band can perform genres from Big Band Swing to Latin Big Band to Tejano music. With a vast song library, the band can perform an R&B/Funk/Classic Rock gig one night and a Big Band Swing gig the next.
Vocal harmonies are as vital to the signature of the band as is our horn section. Male and female lead vocalists accompanied by superb background vocals provide us with the opportunity to offer many ranges of musical styles. It is an identifiable trait the band takes great pride in.
After 35+ years, musicians have come and gone, music has certainly changed, but the band has always focused on offering dance music of all genres and continues to deliver music that is hard to resist.
No matter the occasion, the music selection, or the crowd, the professional standard of TJ Funk is steadfast and our goal has been, and always will be, to provide a high-quality performance that will impress, entertain, and have you excited to spread the name.
