Set Phasers To Funk!
The only thing we love more than seeing a kid shred a musical instrument is seeing them have a great time while doing it, and in that regard 10 year old Clifton checks both boxes as a video of the youngster jamming Lakeside’s ultra funky “Fantastic Voyage” makes its rounds all over the internet this week. Armed with a Jack-O-Lantern smile and a tiny blue bass guitar, Clifton sets his phasers to funk, thumping away at this 1980 classic with all the ease and precision of a seasoned professional; his playing is actually so spot on that we had to put on the original “Fantastic Voyage” to compare notes, realizing that this young man nailed it – and boy, did he nail it hard.
Fun Fact: Together with his parents and 9-year-old sister Melody (who is a musical powerhouse in her own right), Clifton’s taking social media by storm with his out of this world covers of classic rock and funk hits.
Fiercely talented and fiercely in love with his craft, Clifton and his “Fantastic Voyage” cover make it impossible to sit still, but be warned: you’ll find yourself hitting your own groove just as the video cuts off, so be sure to swing by Clifton’s Instagram to check out more fun videos of him jamming away with his parents and 9-year-old sister, Melody!
