Graham Funke and Stonerokk are known in the thriving nightlife community as The Captains of Industry. They are well-known for pushing the boundaries of which songs are acceptable for play in America’s nightclubs, delivering skilled and eclectic shows nightly, and possessing entertaining A-type personality traits with opinionated worldviews, which has made them favorites amongst their peers, employers, and corporate and celebrity clients.
