Brooklyn Funk Essentials / Bio

Brooklyn Funk Essentials was born out of New York’s buzzing hip-hop-jazz and slam poetry scenes of the early nineties as a 10-piece live outfit consisting of some of the finest young musicians, singers, rappers, dub poets and djs the Big Apple had to offer. BFE has released four studio albums, ‘Cool & Steady & Easy’ (1995), ‘In The BuzzBag’ (1998), ‘Make Them Like It’ (2000) and ‘Watcha Playin’ (2008) that along with massive critical praise, have earned them Grammy nominations and ‘Album Of The Year’ acclaim. But perhaps most notably, their amazing live shows have given them a worldwide loyal fan-base.
