Trouble Funk is an American R&B and funk band from Washington, DC. It helped to popularize that area’s local funk subgenre known as go-go. Among the band’s well-known songs are the go-go anthem “Hey, Fellas.” They released several studio albums including Drop the Bomb, In Times of Trouble, Live, and Trouble Over Here, Trouble Over There (UK #54), and two live albums, Trouble Funk – Straight Up Go-Go Style and Saturday Night Live. In 1982, they released a single “So Early In The Morning” on D.E.T.T Records, later reissued on diverse labels as 2.13.61 & Tuff City. Trouble Funk sometimes shared the stage with hardcore punk bands of the day such as Minor Threat and the Big Boys.

Its song “Pump Me Up” was sampled by many other artists and was featured in the film Style Wars and the fictional R&B radio station Wild Style in the game Grand Theft Auto: Vice City.

“Pump Me Up” was sampled in Dimple D’s one-hit wonder “Sucker DJ,” which went to #1 in Australia.

Keyboard player Robert “Syke Dyke” Reed died at the age of 50 on April 13, 2008, from pancreatic cancer.

Trouble Funk continues to remain a figure on the Washington, DC, area live-music scene, and holds a weekly Friday night spot at Alexandria, VA’s Holiday Inn.

Trouble Over Here (also titled Trouble Over Here, Trouble Over There) is a studio album released in 1987 by the Washington, D.C. go-go band Trouble Funk.
