Nate Phung is a Southern California-based punk rock/ska musician who grew up in Los Angeles's underground ska scene and Southern California's punk rock scene, cutting his teeth as a keyboardist and collaborator in bands such as The Two Tone Boners, Isolated Victims, LiveSka All-Stars, Half Past Two, The Maxies, Odd Robot, and Bad Manners. He was also a contact point for touring ska and punk bands, organizing and promoting DIY shows between 2012 and 2015.
While a regular member of The Two Tone Boners, Nate Phung filled in for shows the band had to drop from time to time, performing solo acoustic sets of The Two Tone Boner songs, originals, and ska and punk rock covers. Over time, he would continue writing songs and performing at open mics and backyard parties.
Nate Phung is now a high school band and orchestra teacher who moonlights with his new punk rock/ska/power pop songwriting project Nate Funk. Nate Funk follows a DIY music recording and distribution ethic, recording and releasing music digitally on a donation-based, "name your price" basis.
The Nate Funk and the Phunky Bunch current performing band lineup includes:
Nate Phung (of The Two Tone Boners and The Maxies) - guitar/vocals
Logan Barton (of Odd Robot, Knockout, The Maxies, Paul Collins Beat, and The Skeletones) - bass/vocals

All digital proceeds from Nate Funk directly support music education in the city of San Bernardino.
