The Seacoast’s Funky Divas of Gospel set to entertain the audience at St. Kieran’s!
The group began 25 years ago on the seacoast of New Hampshire and over the years has performed in many different forms. Sometimes as a small band and other times as a band with up to 30 people in a gospel choir. All those steps along the way have led to the close knit group of today.
The Funky Divas sing with a purpose: to share great music. The spirit that flows through their songs goes back to the roots of music itself. It is universal and tells stories as old as time. It is hard rockin' and reflective. It is toe tapping, it is hand clapping, It can, and does, move audiences to their feet and into the aisles to dance. Recently after attending a Funky Divas of Gospel concert, a reporter wrote, "All bluegrass, soul and gospel fans be forewarned: if you miss this funky group, to paraphrase a line in one of their songs, it ain't nobody's fault but yours."
The Funky Divas of Gospel first performed at South Church in Portsmouth, NH. Since then, they have grown, performed for thousands throughout New England and upstate New York, and changed – constantly evolving, finding ways to improve their sound and vocal harmonies, making their performances more fun and entertaining, all the while remaining true to gospel music roots.
