Funky Bunch Comeback Tour?

8/11/2008 10:49:00 AM
Remember when Mark Wahlberg went by Marky Mark? Seems like a lifetime ago. Well, according to the Globe, the Funky Bunch is going to try to make a comeback.

New Kids on the Block aren't the only Boston boys making a comeback. The Funky Bunch, whose droopy-jeaned frontman is the A-list actor known as Mark Wahlberg, are also reuniting and, with any luck, will be playing a few dates this fall with NKOTB.

"The goal is to drop our single and get on tour," said Scott Ross, who's back with original FBers Hector Barros and Terry Yancey. "We're bringing 1990 back." (In fact, it was 1991 when the band had its first and last No. 1 hit "Good Vibrations.") Ross said Wahlberg, a.k.a. Marky Mark, has a hand in the reunion, but he's staying strictly behind the scenes.

The new single, called "Let's Party," sounds like the old stuff, but updated. "It's more Timbaland-ish, if that makes sense," he said, "more club-ish." The band is shooting a video for the song this weekend, and getting ready to take its show on the road. "We're older dudes now," said Ross. "But we still got it."

It's not really a reunion if Mark Wahlberg doesn't perform too, right? But, he's probably too busy with Entourage - speaking of which I just said the commercial for the new season yesterday - it's going to be awesome.

    I believe Wahlberg's comment on the reunion was "Not a f---ing chance"
