Until the release of the Standing in the Shadows of Motown documentary, the members of the band were not widely known. Studio musicians were not credited by Motown until Marvin Gaye`s What`s Going On in 1971, although Motown released a handful of singles and LPs by Earl Van Dyke. The Funk Brothers shared billing with Van Dyke on some recordings, although they were billed as `Earl Van Dyke and the Soul Brothers`, since Motown CEO Berry Gordy, Jr. disliked the word `funk`. Alternatively, the name `Funk Brothers` could have been given to the band ex post facto; the term `funky` as an adjective came to be associated with uptempo, southern-styled soul music in the second half of the 1960`s; the term `funk` as a noun is typically associated with uptempo soul music from the 1970`s onwards. In the `Standing in the Shadows of Motown` documentary, Joe Hunter states that the name `The Funk Brothers` came from Benny Benjamin. Hunter states that Benjamin was leaving the studio (known as the Snake Pit) after session work, paused on the stairs, turned and said to his fellow musicians, `You all are the Funk Brothers`. The band was then informally named.
The band used innovative techniques. For example, most Motown records feature two drummers, playing together or overdubbing one another Marvin Gaye`s `I Heard It Through the Grapevine` used three drummers. A number of songs utilized instrumentation and percussion unusual in soul music. The Temptations` `It`s Growing` features Earl Van Dyke playing a toy piano for the song`s introduction, snow chains are used as percussion on Martha and the Vandellas` `Nowhere to Run`, and a custom oscillator was built to create the synthesizer sounds used to accent Diana Ross and the Supremes` `Reflections` A tire iron was used in the Martha and the Vandellas `Dancing in the Streets`.
