While living in NYC has its pros and cons, seeing pop-up performances by talented unsigned artist is defintely a benefit. Like @MarleySings for example, singer from NYC. Even though we were unable to get a video, we were able to get a photo off before the train came. Fortunately, she's got fans, and more of her videos can be found online just follow her on social.

This electrifying NYC street performing duo, sax player and drummer, can often be heard under the streets of NYC freestyling funky jazz sets that instantly get you movin’ to the beat, remniscent of that classic 90's hip hop feel, mixed in with a little bit of that contagious James Brown sound.
After the we recorded a set, which you can watch below, we asked for their name and the drummer replied Blue Funk Orchestra.
Someone please sign these guys.
