"The Funk Family"
Julie Vineyard and her husband Vinnie "Funkmaster V" Vineyard started Funkmaster V's Uptown Cabs of Renown in Knoxville TN in the summer of 2013, and moved the company to Sevier County in 2015.
Funkmaster V's Uptown Cabs of Renown is first and foremost a family business. After years of working for "the man", husband and wife team Vinnie and Julie Vineyard decided to take a chance and start a taxi company. After two years of success in Knoxville, the family decided they needed a change of scenery, and moved the company east into the Great Smoky Mountains.

Not only were they successful, they felt welcomed and appreciated immediately. The company kept rapidly growing, and now "Uptown Cabs" has the largest fleet and highest ratings of any taxi cab company in the Great Smoky Mountains.

They believe their success is based on their core values:

1) Treat EVERYONE with respect.

2) Never rip anyone off.

3) We are not, and we do not employ: creepers, druggies, skanks, skeezers, or zipheads.

4) We do not know what a ziphead is... but we heard someone say it in Back to the Future II.

5) In all things... be funky.

If you are wondering where the name of the company comes from, it stems from Vinnie Vineyard's alter-ego, pro wrestler and entertainer "Funkmaster V". Vineyard has enjoyed a successful and varied entertainment career, having stints with music, radio, and stand-up comedy. He still currently wrestles and acts. Vineyard is also a Bail Bond agent, Bounty Hunter, and owns another business.
