Novalis has some funky songs and so does Magma.
Who are the other prog bands that maketh funky music?

I recommend one band and one jazz artist. Elephant 9 (it's a norwegian fusion band but I think that they have funk elements) and Eddie Henderson (very funky). 
Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

Just remembered there's some funk in Rick Wakeman's solo albums.  I'm thinking of No Earthly Connection in particular.

Deep Purple's Coverdale & Hughes phase. Nice if you like that sort of thing, but easily, IMO, their worse phase.


In Lazland, life is transient. Prog is permanent.

I felt that Brand X were rather funky. If you consider them in the prog rock vain? Some of their pieces were slow paced with a Genesis feel and others were standard formulas for Jazz/Fusion. After hearing more than 8 of their cd's I have a difficult time lumping them into Jazz/Fusion and they cross into styles of prog rock writing as they do improvise so the term feels a little un-natural to me. For example with the instrumental/vocal short titled "Maybe I'll Lend You Mine After All" is more of an ambient prog scape that you might hear from Genesis in between tracks of the Lamb Lies Down on Broadway album. But....maybe I'm off thread, but if you consider them prog....they are funky.

Weather Report (especially Black Market) and, if you accept "groovy" as funky, then Ozric Tentacles too. These two are my best examples.
