Funky Tonight by The John Buttler Trio Download now or listen on posterous 01 Funky Tonight.mp3 (5214 KB) John Butler Trio is Australian and awesome. Their music is indefinable, but it has elements of blues, folk, rock, funk, ethnic and hippie. Sustained listening provides a kind of rhythmic natural high. Or… maybe that’s just me ;)If you...
