Marty Funkhauser

Marty Funkhauser, man, myth, shit talker, funk slut was born in the thriving metropolis of Taber, AB in 19*6. In 2011 he returned to his roots in Lethbridge, AB, after honing his skills, terrorizing people and crafting his signature grease funk sound for 10 ten years in Vancouver, B.C. Marty loves to freely travel through all things funk and disco, from all out disco edit sets, funky jackin house, mid tempo funk, if it's funky it'll be played. Meticulous track selection and layered mixing is Martys forte. He has been featured twice on DJ Dans legendary Stereo Damage Podcast and has opened for a slew of legends including DJ Dan, A. Skillz, Deekline, DJ Brace, Tommy Largo, Neon Steve, Funkanomics, Slynk, Featurecast, Basement Freaks as well as opening for Stickybuds, 12 times in Nelson BC, Lethbridge and Medicine Hat. The last 3 years have seen him at Shindig Festival (UK), Fozzy Fest, Vibrant Festival, Moab Pride in Utah with DJ Dan as well as being a yearly resident at LEMF. Marty has been a part of the LEMF crew here in Lethbridge for a number of years doing artist bookings, local shows, fundraising and whatever else he can to try and push electronic music to more people in Southern Alberta. He is very proud to have been with LEMF since it's inception 6 years ago. LEMF is the only free all ages, family friendly music festival in Southern Alberta which is done solely on grants from the City of Lethbridge and yearly fundraising.

Long live funk and disco!
