Trypta-Phunk is an instrumental rock/funk group formed by Nashville based musicians Tracy Broussard (drums), Beau Tackett (guitar), Rob Byus (bass), and Philip de Steiguer (Keyboards). Many would consider Trypta-Phunk their "side project" given that they spend most of their time touring with Country superstar and two-time reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year, Blake Shelton.
The group focuses on developing original, groove oriented material while utilizing an instrumental approach. Not a typical funk/rock group, Trypta-Phunk stretches out musically by using a variety of effects, time signatures, and complex arrangments to weave solid melodies throughout a steady groove-fest of rhythms.

Trypta-Phunk to be Featured on Blake Shelton's Christmas Album!
Blake Shelton's first ever Christmas album, "Cheers, it's Christmas," is available EVERYWHERE! In March, Blake asked the guys to write some song ideas for the album. But, he did have one request. He didn't want them to come up with any of that, "weird Try-Funckta stuff that you guys do!" So, they pitched him some ideas and landed two songs on the album! "The Very Best Time of Year," was co-written and performed by Trypta-Phunk and "Santa's Got a Choo Choo Train" was co-written by Blake and the guys. If you want your Christmas to be extra "Phunky," download it or go out and get it!
