The Funk Sextet is a side-project that Brooklyn Funk Essentials started during the pandemic, when their gigs got cancelled, but they still wanted to keep playing. Since all members of the international band couldn’t be at the same place at the same time, those that did live in the same city began doing live streams in which they played much looser and jammier versions of the band’s songs and also trying out completely new compositions. As restrictions started to loosen up, the band decided that it would be fun to continue to do select Funk Sextet gigs in various parts of the world, when the opportunities arose. It was also a fun way to bring in new guests and musicians into the funky fold.
