Jessica Adlawan is the other half of the fearsome femme-force of Funk Fatale. Her tone, her range, and her power set Jess apart from the legion of cover-women. While you may not have heard of her before Funk Fatale, she's surely leave you wanting to hear more.

Andros Howes... provides the feverishly funky bottom end bass grooves. Andros hails from South Caroline where he lit up stages on both the bass and the trombone. He's toured South America, Europe, and the States on both instruments and has been getting funky for the past 10 years here in Sonoma with the Black Sheep Brass Band, Loosely Covered, Burnside, and of course, Funk Fatale. He brings the thump!

Graham Edwards has been slinging his axe in gigging bands for the past 20 years. He currently plays the "Billy Gibbons" role in the Bay Area's premiere tribute to ZZ Top, SleaZZy Top. He's also the lead guitarist for the North Bay's loosest cover act, Loosely Covered, serving up the sounds that make the wine go down smoother, faster, and tastier.
