We were featured at #4 on Relix Magazine’s digital sampler for the month of June 2018, and featured in the print version of that month’s issue. Later that year, we travelled to New York City to perform for a video session held at Relix HQ.


After our show at the Bottom Lounge in October 2017, Jake Orbach-Smith wrote this for LiveForLiveMusic:

“The Bottom Lounge was filled when showtime rolled around, and Zoofunkyou got things going with a huge four-song set opener, including an extended cover of Pink Floyd’s “[Have a Cigar]”. Blending their psychedelic-soul foundation with boogaloo grooves, dueling guitar parts, bluesy crooning, and catchy melodies, Zoofunkyou had the room bouncing from the moment they hit the stage until they played their final note. Look for this young ensemble to make some waves in the future—they’ve got it all.”


IMG_0339-8.jpg picked up on some of the fun we had at 2018’s Down on the Farm fest, and published an article containing a Pro-Shot video from the festival!

“This past July, rising Chicago-based jamband Zoofunkyou played at the Down On The Farm festival in Manhattan, Ill.

YouTuber Instrumental Motion recently shared a pro-shot video the band performing two originals at the event, including the jam-laden “Argula” and the expansive “Ricardo,” featuring dual lead vocals from guitarists Bryan Scheinkopf and Derek Dare.

Zoofunkyou has a slate of tour dates scheduled for this November, and they recently launched a GoFundMe page to create their first full-length album.”


JamBase previewed our performance at Wrigley Field’s brand new Gallagher Way complex for the Cubs’ 2019 Grateful Dead night.

“One vinyl record will be granted for each ticket bought through the offer. A limited number of tickets are available as part of the offer on a first-come, first-served basis. Chicago-based funk act Zoofunkyou will perform on Gallagher Way from 5 p.m. – 6:45 p.m. before the game. A portion of net proceeds from Grateful Dead Night will benefit the Rex Foundation and its aim “to help secure a healthy environment, promote individuality in the arts, provide support to critical and necessary social services, assist others less fortunate than ourselves, protect the rights of indigenous people and ensure their cultural survival, build a stronger community, and educate children and adults everywhere.”
