Non-Existent is playing their own part, however small, in the funk revival of the 21st century, offering their own take on funk as well as a mix of related genres including jazz, blues, rock, and more. Non-Existent's music is often playful, but also has a serious groove; it is largely instrumental, but also catchy; it is highly orchestrated, but also leaves plenty of room for improvisation. The songs are full of tight transitions, challenging rhythmic switches, spirited solos, and overall a whole lot of energy. Drummer Mike Brown and guitarist Robin Schmidt have been playing together since 6th grade (1996)! Throughout their existence, Non-Existent has become continuously funkier and tighter. In the last 6 years they have added bassist John Zinder (also of the band IY), tenor saxophonist Moses Wilks, and trumpet player Danielle Koplinka-Loehr. All living in Ithaca, NY since childhood, the members of Non-Existent are currently at college (Danielle at the Oberlin Conservatory of Music, Robin at Bard College, and Mike, Moses, and John at Cornell University). Non-Existent plays high-energy shows over the summer and college breaks and continues to write new material. They just released their new album, Pole to Pole! They are also excited to have recently won first place in the 2006 Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance Band Contest!

Non-Existent's influences include (in arbitrary order):
