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.

To even say the word "music in connection with hip hop and "rappers" is delusional bordering on insanity.

I wouldn't do it if I were him. He's finally reached A-list actor status. Why remind the world of his one hit wonder days that are now seen as a joke. Donnie I can understand going back to New Kids as his acting career has stalled, but not Mark.

They'll have to find another artist besides Mike Dunn to ripoff if that's the case since 'Good Vibrations' is nearly a carbon copy of the previously released track, 'Shake that Body'
They even steal lyrics from the 'Shake that Body' rap.
Pathetic~!!!

Marky Mark has already climbed up the ladder, and doesn't need them anymore.
