Baker Street is the pinnacle of Rochester funk. Their lineups are consistently flowing and evolving with each performance, interspersed with long jam sessions. They also incorporate frequent audience participation, encouraging the crowd to sing along to slow reggae choruses. Their reggae tracks provide a pleasant contrast to the traditional funk and jazz stylings that comprise the remainder of their setlist but, they transition so fluidly from one set to another, you get swept away by the unceasing wave of rhythm and sound. ”

You really ought to get to know the promising Rochester soul quintet Baker Street. This group of Nazareth College musicians — led by singer-songwriter and guitarist Karis Gregory, and producer-keyboardist Matt Ziegler — has created the most polished debut album I've heard in a long time. The band subtly blends elements of funk, jazz, R&B, and reggae with its brand of smooth-grooving, mid-tempo soul music.” - Daniel J. Kushner
