HomeFunkStill Funky Carl August 23, 2012 Funk 2 Comments I look for any rationale for playing great tunes. So, happy 58th birthday, Mark Avsec. Avsec was the keyboardist in Wild Cherry, whose Play that Funky Music reached number 1 in the U.S. in 1976. Avec is a member of Donnie Iris & the Cruisers and a copyright attorney. The question is whether he still can fit into that black jumpsuit. Soul of Wit I love this song and “Ah! Leah!” by Donnie Iris. I never knew of the connection. Carl Never heard of Donnie Iris. But this is funny but a good song as well.
