Philly Undercover
It’s not a cover band, it’s not a tribute band… it’s Philly Undercover! We’ve asked some of our favorite artists to pay homage to their favorite artists for this series. You may not recognize these local acts as they take the stage playing full sets in their best musical disguise for one night only.

Arthur Thomas & the Funkitorium take on the Godfather of Soul James Brown, featuring special guests Zeek Burse, Carla Gamble, and Taylor Kelly.

“The Funkitorium” was birthed in Philadelphia, PA in March 2019. After a few months of filtering, the band finally found a crew that fits. Those Artists are Lead Vocalist "Arthur Thomas", Vocalist "Re-Mus", Guitarist "Zavetis", Bassist "The Jusman", Drummer "Chops", DJ "Ndot", Dan "The Man" on keys, and last but not least, Cam on Percussion/Drums. The Funkitorium was assembled like one of the superteams that you see in sports by front man Arthur Thomas. The band became a group with a chemistry that you don’t see that often - the brotherhood between them all plays a huge part in their success. ⁠⁠ Individually all 8 of these music artists are incredibly dope, but together Arthur Thomas and The Funkitorium are a force to be reckoned with. The music and their live performances show that funk music is a genre that is enjoyable to people of all ages and races."⁠
