Brooklyn Funk Essentials


This is the rescheduled show from Sunday 13 December. All tickets from the previous date remain valid. Across a career that stretches 25 years, Brooklyn Funk Essentials have established themselves as an audacious project fusing soul, hip hop, spoken word, jazz and, of course, funk. Established in the early 90s by Arthur Baker and Lati Kronlund, Brooklyn Funk Essentials were regulars of New York’s vibrant club scene by the time their debut album Cool & Steady & Easy hit the shelves. Between recording six studio albums (the most recent dropping in August 2019), the Essentials have made a name for themselves as absolutely electric performers, exhilarating their loyal and adoring fanbase with performances across every continent. Line up: Alison Limerick – lead vocals Desmond Foster – guitar and lead vocals Anna Brooks – saxophone and vocals Iwan VanHetten – trumpet, keyboards and vocals Hux De Lux – Drums Lati Kronlund – Bass
