Bubonik Funk features a guitar-driven style that balances on the border between funk and soul. Organized in 2006 when its members were in their sophomore years at Charlotte Catholic High School, the group includes Stefan Kallander, guitar; Daniel Allison, drums; Dylan Ellett, vocals and keyboard; and Nick McOwen, bass.

Bubonik Funk’s recording “Carolina Phase” was released recently on the Diffuser website to a national audience. The group has toured up and down the East Coast and opened for funk legends George Clinton and Parliament Funkadelic during an early June show.

All concerts in the free series are scheduled for 7 p.m. on Thursdays. Upcoming acts include Doug Gibson, July 16; Buchanan Boys, July 23; and Steph Stewart and the Boyfriends, July 30. The rain location for all the events is Illusions in A.K. Hinds University Center.
