Funk Plate is an Elon jazz and funk supergroup with members from all classes. Kavian Bina’s lead flute is complemented heavily by the jazz piano techniques of David Williams and smooth drums of Mike Hagen. Funk plate is heavily improvisational and eager to blow the minds of their listeners. Next Sunday, we really don’t know what we’re getting into, but it’s sure to be entertaining.
