12pm: DJ Rice Pilaf + Dillanwithaq

All Vinyl DJ sets from our favorite two wax spinners.

5pm: Queen City Cutups

Queen City Cut Ups is aVermont-based acoustic band who blurs the stylistic lines between bluegrass, old-time, cajun, classic country and all things Americana. Their music features sweet vocal harmonies, fiery picking and a tasty repertoire of classicAmericana music.


Behind the decks since the turn of the century, CRWD CTRL knows many names and locations. From South Beach, Miami, to downtown Denver, San Diego, Albany, Milwaukee, NYC, and Boston, this traveled DJ and musical talent has as much musical smarts as mileage covered. Everything from classic soul and extensive vinyl knowledge, to contemporary and future house/tech/hip-hop vibes, the taste is comprehensive and well-acquired. One fan best sums it up: "You seem to always pick the beat that I could listen to for hours and still keep grooving."

9pm: The Medallions

The Medallions, “the best cover band in Vermont + The World”, play upbeat, classic dance music for humans of all ages. Covering the hits of disco & disco-adjacent rock music , they’re sure to get your juices flowing. Often accused of coming out of the band Madaila, The Medallions in fact come out of the year 1977, when the disco rockers got stuck in an elevator at the Philadelphia Spectrum Arena & transported to the Year 2015. After 8 years of wedding gigs raising money to build a time machine to get back home, the band has made zero financial progress due to its exorbitant fondue budget. With no choice but to keep on rocking, The Medallions are sure to come down to Funk on the Water and rock your dang socks off.

[FOTW Website] This site has all things FOTW. It’s live now, and we’ll continue to add more info in the coming weeks.


We will not be selling tickets ahead of time. We’ll be charging a $5 “donation” at the door.


Funk on the Water has always been a fundraiser to raise money for Lake Champlain. This year, given the circumstances in VT, we’ll be donating all door charges, and then some, to flood recovery funds in Vermont. More to come on this, the music, the food, and the fun.

Stay tuned, and get ready for a hell of a day and night in Burlington. September 23rd. See you there.
