Los Angeles, January 21, 2014: CONAN is gearing up to celebrate funk on February 10 when the show brings in jazz-funk groove machine Rock Candy Funk Party (RCFP) - a band that delivers a sound that's as celebratory as the name suggests - for their late-night television debut. With a music-loving, guitar-playing host, CONAN is known for its impeccable musical tastes and with RCFP's reboot of classic '70s/'80s jazz-funk, will be bringing the genre to the forefront. Powered by a lineup of world-renowned players - album producer Tal Bergman (drums), Joe Bonamassa (guitar), Ron DeJesus (guitar), Mike Merritt (bass), Renato Neto (keys), and Daniel Sadownick (percussion) - the band came together for the sheer fun of making music, and a mutual love of genre-blurring grooves.
