Ready & Willing
Prime Time Funk has built a reputation for being one of the most highly talented acts in Upstate New York and that reputation is spreading throughout the States and Europe. Their CD 'Ready and Willing,' produced by Grammy Award winning producer Jeff Tyzik, links all the musical styles together and is performed by a band with chops and heart. The CD, like the band, is a diverse-but cohesive-mix. It opens with an uptempo blues 'Never Make Your Move Too Soon' then heads into the hiphop-style title track. PTF funks up Bill Withers 'Use Me' and then gets down (or up, depending on your point of view) with a Tower of Power flavored 'One Life To Live'. 'Hopelessly In Love' brings to mind the smooth style of 'Babyface', while 'When You're Hot You're Hot' was inspired by George Clinton. 'Tongue Tied' is a musical journey in itself, with a stop at Graham Central Station. PTF makes Lionel Richie's 'Love Will Find A Way' it's own, along with the James Brown classic 'Get Up'. 'Champs Elysees', inspired by the bands 2 trips to the Lionel Hampton Jazz Club in Paris, France could easily fit into a 'Smooth Jazz' format. Finally, PTF crosses over into Latin territory with 'Fiesta De La Noche', and puts a reggae groove to Janis Joplin's 'Piece Of My Heart'. This is 'a world class act' that lends a balletic canvas to Funk; R&B and Latino tracks with a variety of graceful and perfect sounds for parties or kicking back at home with plenty of room for dancing--day or night! Put this CD on, turn the volume up loud as get ready to wash your car or clean your house. And be prepared to tell your friends, when you are asked 'who are these guys', how they can order their very own PTF CD! You can also let them know that this is a band who's musicians and vocalists have been employed by HBO; Walt Disney Productions; and Buick for national Ad campaigns. The PTF horn section has been hired to tour with The Temptations and The Four Tops. As Producer Jeff Tyzik says, 'This ain't no bar band! This is a world class act!'
