Funk Out Cancer 2 Brings the Funk Out for Cancer Research

by ,

Funk Out Cancer proved to be a worthy cause and great evening of fun for all who came out to the Orpheum Theatre in Madison last Saturday, November 20 to support cancer research at the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center. The benefit concert and silent auction in memory of Kate Gates Falaschi was presented by Widen Enterprises with Last Coast Productions and featured music by international recording artists funk/jazz trio SOULIVE along with special guests Madison’s own Phat Phunktion and Mama Digdown’s Brass Band

"You could literally see and hear cancer getting its butt kicked! We were all witness to the power a group of people collectively has in making a difference, and it felt incredible. It was a great evening for music lovers and for the fight against cancer," said Al Falaschi husband of Kate and founding member of Phat Phunktion.
