You gotta believe Mark Wahlberg still loves his old home town. Now maybe we’ll see just how much he’s willing to do for the city of Boston.
Wahlberg said he would put his old hip-hop group Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch back together to play a tribute concert for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings, according to TMZ. Wahlberg reportedly made the announcement to a reporter as he was leaving T.C. Williams High School in Alexandria, Virginia.
Apparently he won’t have to twist the arms of his former music mates -- Scottie Gee, Hector the Booty Inspector, DJ-T and Ashey Ace -- to make it happen. In a March interview with TMZ, The Funky Bunch said a reunion would be “amazing.”
Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch group formed in 1989 and recorded two albums, 1991’s Music for the People and 1992’s You Gotta Believe before breaking up. Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch were best known for their 1991 number one single “Good Vibrations.”
The move would, indeed, help send good vibrations across the city and raise money for those impacted by the Boston Marathon tragedy.
