FUNK/SOUL/R&B/JAZZ-FUNK: ANYONE?

I live in Victoria, play bass and/or guitar, and would like to see if there might be others out there (drums, guitar, keys, vocals, brass) who are interested in playing funk, soul, and its variations. I am mostly interested in playing covers as opposed to originals, although quite often I like to put a new twist on a well-known song.

I find it somewhat difficult to motivate myself to practice without the band, so have not been playing or practicing much for the last couple of years. Previously I played with few garage bands, mostly classic rock.

Since finding common interests in music is the most important thing when forming a band, below are some of the performers whose music I find interesting and would like us to play:

Funk/Soul/Dance:

--Fun Loving Criminals
--Tower of Power
--Chic
--Earth Wind and Fire
--Kool and the Gang
-- Spice Girls (couple of good songs)
-- Barry White
--Jacksons 5
--Neville Brothers
--Solomon Burke
--Cliff Richard
--Larry Graham
--Simply Red
-- Prince
--Rick Astley
Etc.

G-Funk/ Hip-Hop Funk:

-- Tupac
--Warren G
--Notorious BIG
--Fun Loving Criminals

Jazz-Funk:

--Herbie Hancock
--Mike Stern
--John Scofield
--Brecker Brothers
--Frank Gambale
--Victor Wooten
--Maceo Parker

You are aged 30+ (I am 40), and are comfortable in communicating with people who speak with accents (English is not my first language). Sense of humour, as well as rehearsal space, is a bonus. No rock stars please!

Just email me a list of your favourite performers/songs, and we will take it from there.
