Album Notes
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 "East Bay Soul Sound," this 10-piece ensemble has maintained that tradition and more.

With their first national release, " Prescription for Soul," on the Oaklans-based label, Strokeland Records, DoctorfunK joins other standouts such as Glenn Waters and Fred Ross, as well as Doc Kupka's own Strokeland Superband.

"Prescription for Soul" contains sophisticated arrangements hand led by a seasoned, tight, five-piece horn section, with powerful vocals and an extremely well "greased" rhythm section. All combine to deliver the deepest of grooves and smoothest of ballads.

DoctorfunK is poised for a place in all of our CD collections of the finest in soul and funk music. Listen for them on your local radio stations and watch for upcoming performances in your area as well.

Old School in the New Millennium is here to stay. So if music is your medicine, make an appointment with DoctorfunK for your "Prescription for Soul".

Lucio Gomez

Great lyrics and outstanding music!!!
Takes me to a frame of mind of listening to Tower of Power. I love the brass section and how the Baritone seems to fill in the spaces, bringing a true link to all the songs on this CD.....I can hardly wait for future releases fron Doctorfunk!!

Oakland is the Prescription for Soul !
A -Must have CD- for all that like Tower of Power style soul. The albus contains new songs from The Doctor himself and it´s like coming home :-)


Absolutely Fantastic!
If you are a TOP fan, then this a must. The original music is great. The covers are brilliant. I love "I'm a Man." The TOP tribute is also great. Bottom line: BUY IT!

Awesome...Dr. Funk is in the house
From the maestro of funk another solid collection of danceable ditties and memorable balads. I grew up in Oakland and remember T.O.P. from the On Broadway in Jack London Sq. Funk is in my blood and this album is a soul transfusion!
