Melissa Funk: Caught In The Act

Slow Trucks Go Fast With Melissa Funk

By Leslie Hampton Published March 6th, 2010

Drummer: Melissa Funk
Band:Slow Trucks
Venue:The Blank Club, San Jose on February 10th

Melissa Funk plays rocking rhythms in indie- and shoegaze-inspired Slow Trucks. Melissa sets up her drums fairly flat, chokes up high on her sticks and likes to play with electric lights around her kit. Check out Slow Trucks on their Northwest tour which begins this month through SXSW and completes at the end of May.


When not designing web pages, plonking her rare guitars or banging on her eBay drums, Leslie Hampton haunts northern California clubs and house concerts photographing musicians.
[Ed. Note: Each episode of Caught In The Act features drummers in action, from the famous like Danny Carey to the not-so-famous local indies. If you're a photographer who'd like to feature your work in Caught In The Act, drop us a note.]
