TRUNK. speelt Funk in een Jazz hoesje. De muziek is niet alleen lekker om naar te luisteren maar swingt zo hard dat je niet stil kunt blijven staan. Ik had TRUNK. uitgenodigd om te komen spelen op de maandelijkse zondagmiddag FunkMis van Gigstarter op Ruigoord. De muziek, show en presentatie vielen goed in de smaak, er werd gedanst, er was veel interactie met het publiek en men bleef lang plakken. TRUNK. zelf ging ook lekker lang door, ze genieten echt van spelen in deze samenstelling. Stuk voor stuk professionele en gedreven muzikanten. Heerlijk!
