Funky Bunch to Marky Mark:

Reunion Would Be

'AMAZING!'

EXCLUSIVE

0306_funky_bunch_article_facebookThe Funky Bunch is PUMPED UP ... telling TMZ they heard Mark Wahlberg's comments about a possible reunion and now the guys want Marky Mark to know THEY'RE TOTALLY ON BOARD!

Just a few days ago, 41-year-old Mark reportedly told a UK magazine he "might" get the old band back together ... but, "I've just got to find the right time."

Now, 2 of the Bunch's former members -- Terry Yancey (aka DJ T) and Hector Barros (aka “The Booty Inspector”) -- tell us ... "Our initial reaction was that it would be amazing if he were to want to reunite with the group."

So far, the guys say there have not been any official conversations between the two sides ... but tell us a reunion has been something they've been thinking about for years.

"We always had the want of getting back together as a group (Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch). But once Mark’s acting career took off it became obvious it wasn’t going to happen."

The guys say they reached out to Marky Mark in 2008, but he respectfully declined -- "He expressed that he would love to be on tour doing music again, but he felt he was too far removed from it."

Now, the Bunch -- who still performs together without Mark -- tells TMZ they remain hopeful ... but realistic ... explaining it would be a thrill to perform classic hits like "Good Vibrations" with Mark, but they're not exactly holding their breath.

Maybe they just want to get together again and see what happens. If they can make some $$ and become musically relevant and sucessful again, whats the harm?

If sense were common everyone would have it.    

Would lil Marky Mark want to lose his "street cred" (heh heh) by reuniting with these guys? After all, isn't he a serious filmmaker now? Yah. His brother blows the doors off as far as acting is concerned, and Mark may as well be reading cue cards while he acts, like Damon, Affleck, and DeCrapio. For whatever reason, he gets all the hype but he's just an arrogant d*** who got lucky. Marky Mark, go back to rapping.

@if sense. You sound like you're overly obsessed with Mark. If you're a guy, did he steal your girl? If you're a girl, did he reject you. Lmao. Chill out.

I didn't even know the Funky Bunch were specific people. I just thought they were a bunch of various background singers.
