Dr Funk


Jonny Rubin other wise known as ‘Dr Funk’ born in Sunderland living in Newquay, Cornwall is a Multi-Instrumentalist, Live-Looper, & Jazz Funk Bassist.

Simply put the man lives to play the bass. That’s really all you need to know. Slapping, popping, strumming, riffing, he elevates the humble rhythm instrument to levels of melody and showmanship that are more commonly associated with the lead guitar. Inspired by legendary bassists – Marcus Miller, Victor Wooten, Louis Johnson – Funk is the type of player who could jam on a groove for hours, building it up with his loop machine and keys. Fellow musicians stop and play with him. Crowds gather. Intrigued ears fished by Funk’s playing, pausing and taking time out to enjoy a stranger’s soundtrack.

Internet Sensation Dr Funk amassing over 200 million views on Social Media platforms in the last 2 years brings busking into the 2020s. He makes the four-string sing!

He surfs. His dream is to own a 67 Mustang Fastback. He’s not actually a doctor.
