Kris Yunker is a funk/soul Hammond organist who brings his unique sound and vintage gear to every gig he plays.

In addition to his own project Yunker Funker, he’s also in the rotation of such acts as The Glen David Andrews Band, The Garcia Project, Alan Evans Trio, On The Spot Trio, Elise Testone, Drew Angus, Love Raptor, The 7 Day Weekend, and many more. He played and toured with Goose in 2017 just before recording his first solo album, Bicoastal Waves. Kris recently subbed for Soulive’s Neal Evans at Bowlive with George Porter, Jr. When not on stage, he’s in the studio, having recently released his single “To Be Fair” with Karl Denson, Will Bernard, Mike Dillon, Alan Evans, and the BT/ALC horns on the Vintage League Records label. Lately, he’s also appeared on the albums of Alan Evans, Joe Marcinek, Sugar Business, Frank Sellman, Drew Angus, Greg Mattson, and Mike Oehmen.
