Getting into blues/funk music

I come from a punk rock & ska background and I'm really diggin' funk and blues lately, I play both guitar and bass. Name me bands/artists that you enjoy in these respective genres, I might even enjoy them myself I need some funky rhythm chords/licks & groovy, funky bass lines. All suggestions are welcome

Check out Herbie Hancock, Roy Hargrove, Robert Glasper's black radio, David Sanborn's funky stuff, Mike Stern and much more to come. They will keep you busy for a couple of years

A lot of it is searching around though. Find an artist that you like on youtube, for example, and then click on another that you haven't heard of in the suggested column.

Some of my favourites are Rory Gallagher, BB King, Albert King, Freddy King, SRV, Jimmie Vaughn, Bonnie Raitt, Eric Clapton, Joe Bonamassa, Warren Hayes, Derek Trucks, John Lee Hooker. Many others, but I won't name them all.
