Seven San Franciscans To Complete For Title of The Master of The Funk?


Major event on April 11th to determine San Francisco’s funkiest with 100% of proceeds to benefit at-risk children

San Francisco, CA – January 28, 2009 – At midnight on Saturday, April 11, 2009, San Francisco will crown a new Master of the Funk at the Red Devil Lounge during the Fourth Annual Funk out with ROCK event. The winning candidate will be selected based on the most “votes” received online while 100% of proceeds will support San Francisco nonprofit Real Options for City Kids (ROCK) which provides at-risk children and youth with positive opportunities in the form of sports/fitness, outdoor adventures, learning enrichment and leadership development.

Funk out with ROCK is a major over-the-top social event featuring live, original funk music, a DJ, silent auctions and hundreds of San Franciscans. The Master of the Funk competition is an innovative spin on the traditional host committee for major events. All Funk out with ROCK hosts, otherwise known as candidates, go head to head to raise the most revenue from online ticket sales and donations. The candidate with the most “votes” is declared the winner. To entice the public to purchase a ticket and/or donate under their name, all candidates were asked to dress in their funkiest attire and film themselves doing their funkiest of moves. A YouTube video was created and is displayed on the event website for the public to determine who they feel should be crowned the Master of the Funk.

Funk out with ROCK be held on Saturday, April 11, 2009 from 9pm-2am at Red Devil Lounge in San Francisco. For more information about Funk out with ROCK, visit
