Established in the early 90s by Arthur Baker and Lati Kronlund, Brooklyn Funk Essentials wereàregulars of New York's vibrant club scene when their debut album, "Cool & Steady & Easy", hit the shelves.

Fast forward to 2019 and following 2015's reunion with Dorado and the success of "Funk Ain't Ova", the band are set to release "Stay Good", a fun, funky and fresh collection of tracks featuring throughout are the powerful and soulful vocals of Alison Limerick, now a full time member of the band.
