Les Funk Brothers apparaissent sur de nombreux hits Motown, comme My Girl, I Heard It Through the Grapevine, Baby Love, Signed, Sealed, Delivered I'm Yours, Papa Was a Rollin' Stone, The Tears of a Clown, et (Love is Like a) Heat Wave. En 2002, le documentaire de Paul Justman Standing in the shadows of Motown (Motown : la véritable histoire) retrace l'épopée du groupe, d'après le livre éponyme d'Allan Slutsky. Dès le début, le film annonce la couleur : « les Funk Brothers ont joué sur plus de hits n°1 que les Beatles, Elvis, les Rolling Stones et les Beach Boys réunis ». (fr)

Pas in 2002 werden ze bij een groot publiek bekend door de filmdocumentaire Standing in the Shadows of Motown van Paul Justman. (nl)

There is no undisputed list of the members of the group. Some writers have claimed that virtually every musician who ever played on a Motown track was a "Funk Brother". There are 13 Funk Brothers identified in Paul Justman's 2002 documentary film Standing in the Shadows of Motown, based on Allan Slutsky's book of the same name. These 13 members were identified by NARAS for the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and were recognized with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2007, the Funk Brothers were inducted into the Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum. (en)
