Chili Peppers, Faith no more has some good stuff. A cool band on MySpace called Pacifico has some funky stuff. Maroon Five has some funky music. David Bowe - Fame is funky fresh.

Infectious Grooves has a couple of sick albums. Also features Rob Trujillio(?) on bass.

Ya know who has some really good funk songs is Lenny Kravitz believe it or not. Never looked into him much but he has some awesome songs. Check out:

Tunnel Vision
Fear
Straight Cold Player
Supersoulfighter
Live
Thin Ice
Always on the run (slash on guitar)

I have to suggest all of Bootsy Collins' work, he did a lot of early Funkadelic records and his group Bootsy's Rubber Band is great.
