From the Northwest United States, a region long known for producing energetic and fresh musical talent, blazes the Emerald City’s latest sensation. Seattle’s own DoctorfunK.
DoctorfunK was established in 1995 and has set the standard for new soul music in the Pacific Northwest. Echoing the legendary passion of famed horn band Tower of Power and that “Bay Area Sound,” this 10-piece ensemble has maintained the tradition and more.
With their first national release,”Prescription for Soul.” on the Oakland-based label, Strokeland Records, DoctorfunK joins other standouts such as Glenn Waters and Fred Ross, as well as Doc Kupka’s own Strokeland Superband.
The follow-up release, “Second Opinion” introduces fresh new original material in a modern presentation that is rooted in the classic soul sound.
Tower of Power alumni Jeff Tamelier produced and collaborated on the material, along with Roger Smith and Prarie Prince who makes a guest appearances.
