New York Funk ExchangeDrawing influences from the likes of Aretha Franklin, James Brown, and Stevie Wonder, “New York Funk Exchange” is an unforgettable force preparing to take over the industry one groove at a time. Hailing from Brooklyn, the band is fronted by powerhouse vocalist Serena Fortier and complemented by a funkadelic cluster of brass “The Wall Street Horns”. NYFE are now in the process of finalizing the follow up to their debut album, “The Funkonomic Stimulus Plan”, that was released in 2009 and garnered rave reviews which helped paved the way for performances on SIRIUS XM’s “Ron and Fez Show”.

 

Coming together in 2007 after meeting at Berklee College of Music, New York Funk Exchange has performed all over the United States, showcasing their powerful presence by mixing some of their favorite old school funk and soul music with a new school popular edge. Sharing the stage with artists like Fred Wesley & the New JB’s, Melvin Seals, Martha and the Vandellas, Eddie Money, Damian Marley, and Nas, the band has played widely known venues including New York City’s B.B. Kings, Baltimore’s Sound Stage, Vermont’s The Rusty Nail Stowe in addition to earning a residency at Manhattan’s Club Groove.

In between touring the US, NYFE frequently performs at Club Groove where the best musicians in the city jam with hall-of-famers.
