"We attract thousands of visitors of all ages. Thanks to the support of our musicians, volunteers, sponsors and host towns, we're able to keep jazz and blues music alive and rolling in the region."

Long Branch Jazz & Blues Festival headliner is Funktion 11. With their outstanding original compositions and dynamic interpretations of iconic and contemporary hits, Funktion 11 brings an international and contemporary spin to the funk tradition with three lead vocalists, an electric guitar, electric bass, keyboards, a four-piece horn section, drums and percussion. Spawned from the creative vision of Band Leader and percussionist Ronnie Nalven, Funktion 11 has been garnering a strong East Coast following for their infectious rhythmic grooves and captivating original material. Their energetic, dynamic stage performances feature original choreography and undeniable crowd chemistry, making their live shows as much about dancing and having a good time as listening intently to the tight groove and virtuosic playing of each individual band member.
