July 14, 2021

On this episode I chatted to musician Donovan Funk. Donovan creates alternative rock inspired by Kings of Leon, Jeff Buckley, Tom Petty, and Tor Miller; both in lyricism and musical expression. He started playing guitar at an early age, learning classic rock riffs that he heard while forming early memories with his dad. After his teen years he rediscovered his love for the instrument and began building songs based around what he could learn from the internet.

Donovan Funk is currently working on an album in his home studio writing and recording original compositions to share with the world via streaming services and live performances. Using intuition and classical training from school orchestra, Donovan Funk is able to include a multitude of instrument to his productions such as bass, drums, keyboard, and cello.

You can also find Donovan Funk performing at festivals, markets, and venues in Oklahoma City with a set that starts out mellow and builds to a screaming finale. Playing covers and originals with supporting members Christian Pearson on bass and his brother Conner Funk on drums.

They constructed many brick streets, bridges, and did work for the Rock Island Railroad. Connelly Paving Company constructed the first highway in the state of Oklahoma from Bartlesville to Dewey, which was approximately 6.5 miles.

Since the days back in El Reno, Connelly Paving moved a few times and currently headquarters in Oklahoma City. Connelly Paving works with general contractors all around the central Oklahoma region. We are a fifth generation family business that has operated within the central Oklahoma region for over 100 years.  Connelly Paving Company prides itself on serving their customers and providing a quality product.
