¡ESSO! Afrojam Funkbeat came to life in late 2013, drawing from the members’ shared love of dance, soul, and high energy music. Earning their start as the house band for a live music night in downtown Chicago, the rotating members collaborated live onstage until a solid foundation assembled. With a growing setlist of original material, co-founders and songwriters Armando Pérez and Kevin Miller recorded and released their first original recordings an online EP mixtape in 2014 via Belmont Electric Studios.
