A Trike Called Funk
A.a.Ron Myers and Ed Word Galan are a dynamic duo who share a love for music, dancing, and community building. In late 2019, BeanTown Lockers, a group which they are both members of, won a grant to put on a series of monthly pop-up performances for the following year. In 2020, as they were forced to pivot on their initial plans, A Trike Called Funk was conceived as an adaptation to the changing rules around social gathering. Its founders wanted to be able to create fun and engaging experiences while also supporting local businesses and organizations who were also figuring out new ways to bring people together.
We believe that any time there’s a gathering of people there is an opportunity to induce beauty, generosity, creativity and magic. A Trike Called Funk is a vehicle that allows those things to emerge spontaneously and organically.
