All About B.A.S.S

We believe in quality over quantity,
But why not have both?

Why Funktion One?

Music is one of life’s greatest gifts. When a DJ plays a track, sound waves pump through the room vibrating ear drums, setting the mood for a night of dancing and connection. When a track is played through a professional sound system such as a FunKtionOne, the output is experienced with the depth and crispness that the original artist intended. Within this audio perfection, patrons lose themselves on the dance floor and become completely emerged in the music, succumbing to the rhythm as they dance along with the beat. Creating this experience for a room full of people is one of the most rewarding feelings to have while on the job. That’s why Funktion One.

Joanna “Bean” Zobjeck

Co Founder / Artistic Director

With a formal background in the fine arts and design, I have always been drawn to the art, performance, and entertainment industries. Music has been a powerful muse for me since I can remember, inspiring countless artistic productions. It’s fascinating how it can alter a mood or bring forth unworldly visions! When I’m not hard at work, I can be found spinning fire with friends, chilling with my cat, reading a good book, or planning my next travel adventure.
