Mark Wahlberg wants to return to his pop star roots!

The actor and producer got his start as the lead singer of Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch (in addition to being a Calvin Klein underwear model) and told TMZ Wednesday that he’s not opposed to getting the gang back together.

Wahlberg, who is from the Dorchester area of Boston, said he’d be down to feel the “Good Vibrations” again in order to raise funds for the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings.

This isn’t the first time Wahlberg has hinted at a reunion. Back in March, he told a UK magazine that he just needed to “find the right time.” Other members of the Funky Bunch quickly told TMZ they were interested as well.

Could the time be now?
