MOUNT VERNON ó Local band, Funk Station, will perform Friday, July 19, at 7 p.m., at Sips Coffee House, 101 S. Main St., Mount Vernon.

Funk Station is a band from Mount Vernon. The bandís members include Tanner Jessup on drums, Ian Clarkson on bass and Trent Staats as lead guitar/vocals. The three bandmates met through performing with their high school jazz band. Jessup and Staats also performed in the Mount Vernon High School Marching band.

In 2012, the band played for a battle of the bands competition called Instaband at Groove U, a music college, in Columbus. The band made the audition for Instaband with their unique alternative funk sound. Although they did not win, Funk Station attracted the interest of a student who attended Groove U, and was picked up and signed by Dilligent Management.

Funk Station is currently in the studio working on their first debut EP. For more information visit or
