Born and raised in Bed Stuy, Brooklyn, identical twin brothers Amiri and Rahiem Taylor do not make the type of music that their borough of origin is usually associated with.  Growing up in the mecca of hip-hop culture, the Taylor brothers had more exposure in their house to pop, funk and soul music from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. In high school, they taught themselves how to play guitar and write songs based off of the Beatles.  After high school they formed Blac Rabbit, bringing in former metal and church drummer Patrick Jones, followed by resident shredder Josh Lugo on bass (and sometimes guitar) to play their original psychedelic rock tunes. Tired of working boring grocery store jobs, Amiri and Rah started performing Beatles covers on the NYC subway, earning some pocket change, slowly building a reputation around the city while also performing their original material in New York’s best venues for up and coming acts.  On December 23rd, 2017, the band released their debut self-titled EP, which was also self-recorded and self-mixed. On January 26th, 2018, Rah and Amiri were filmed performing Beatles songs on the train by New York Nico, the “Unofficial talent scout of New York City,” who posted the video to his 120K+ followers on Instagram. One of the videos went viral generating over 25M streams, leading to numerous TV and Radio appearances, including The Ellen Degeneres Show. The band also recorded a cover of “Michelle” by The Beatles for a Gucci ad campaign featuring Harry Styles.  Meanwhile, Blac Rabbit’s fan base has increased significantly while they have been touring globally and recording their debut full-length album, set for release early 2019.

Insane Clown Posse: The Great Milenko 20th Anniversary Tour – 10/18/17

Insane Clown Posse:
The Great Milenko 20th Anniversary Tour
with R.A. The Rugged Man, Lyte, Ouija & Web Three

@ The Hangar in Miami.

Insane Clown Posse

Few artists have as devoted a fan base (“Juggalos” as they call themselves) and are as roundly dismissed by critics as Insane Clown Posse, the Wayne, Michigan, rap-metal duo of Violent J (a.k.a. Joe Bruce) and Shaggy 2 Dope (a.k.a. Joey Utsler). Still, ICP’s longevity and marketing acumen have brought a success even their detractors must acknowledge.

Originally, Violent J and Shaggy 2 Dope were part of a rap quartet called Inner City Posse, which formed in 1988; when the group broke apart, Insance Clown Posse took its place in the local firmament. Their debut, 1992’s Carnival of Carnage, introduced the group’s new sound, which mixed harder rock elements among the beats and rhymes and its essential pose (clowns in full make-up anticipating the apocalypse, basically). But despite a steady stream of albums that sell well to the group’s surprisingly large core, ICP’s main draw is its live show featuring all manner of sideshow shenanigans, including pyrotechnics and the liberal tossing of Faygo soda onto a willing audience.

With a growing fan-base, 1994’s The Ringmaster sold well, eventually going gold, and led to the band signing with Jive records for 1995’s The Riddle Box. The band jumped to Hollywood Records for 1997’s The Great Milenko (Number 63) which helped propel ICP into the national spotlight; Hollywood’s pulling the album off shelves due to questionable lyrical content gave the album an even further push as the burgeoning nü-metal audience couldn’t wait to hear what all the fuss was about. Island eventually issued the disc. The band began making headlines but not so much for their music but thanks to a road accident (Violent J suffered a concussion), fights with their own audiences and at an Indiana Waffle House, and a panic attack onstage in Minneapolis (J’s).

By 1999, when the group issued The Amazing Jeckel Brothers, it had enough clout to debut at Number Four on the Top 200, and like Kiss before them, they began merchandising like crazy: multiple CD covers, a movie (Big Money Hustlas, which bypassed theaters for video), comic books, even part-time careers as professional wrestlers for both members, as well as appearances in a pair of wrestling video games. The group closed out the initial run of its ‘Dark Carnival’ series of albums with Shangri-La and Hell’s Pit, with the former album proclaiming that they had been leading their fans to God the whole time. ICP’s profile has shrunk in recent years (they’ve gone back to indie labels and tour in less high-profile a fashion), but their fan base remains as loyal as their 2007 release the The Tempest, which debuted at Number 20 on the Top 200, proved.

Way more than just a rock/rap fusion outfit, Web Three Music is its own genre. It’s a “work hard, party hard” ethos mixed with social commentary, hard-hitting beats, live instruments, witty lyrics, and an undertone that urges listeners to be themselves. Web Three is “Do You” music, blending genres from hip hop to rock, with a touch of electro and soul. Having shared the stage with such artists as HED (p.e.), Twista, Project Pat, and Rehab, the band has developed a dedicated fan base and a close-knit family like following which fills venues. Web Three’s sound has been compared to Linkin Park, The Beastie Boys, and Rage Against the Machine… It’s up to you to decide for yourself.

Web Three’s name derives from his initials. Born William E. Bachelor III, Web is a charismatic rapper who is a self-described one-man mosh pit of style and a hip-hop fiend. He blends a natural gift for verse with a “f— it” attitude, making him the MC that stands out in a field of regurgitating one-offs. Equally important is his supporting cast. The incessantly joking Dita Von Bloom functions as the band’s hype man and second vocalist. Mike Dickson, the band’s guitarist, brings live instrumentation and adds energy to the already amped-up shows. Demonic theatrics are embodied by Ratt. The soft-spoken DJ Needlez runs the sequencing and turntables during the live show.

The lyrical flow has variety and is effortless. The music is firm and thick. The entire sound is full yet rageful. The complementary releases of the harder album “Do You,” and the more introspective “Loss, Love, and The New Normal” featuring Kaaren Styles, taken together present a complete range of talent that showcases the true depth of Web Three.

The legendary Wailers band returns to bring its revolutionary sound to fans around the world. Steered by famed bassist and founder Aston “Familyman” Barrett, and joined in solidarity with original Wailers’ guitarists Junior Marvin and Donald Kinsey, The Wailers continue to make musical history.

From 1973 to 1980, Bob Marley & The Wailers recorded, toured, and performed before countless millions worldwide. Since 1981, Familyman and Junior have carried on the mission to “keep The Wailers together,” just as Bob requested, affirming: “By doing that, you keep me alive through the music.”

In tribute to the late co-founder and drummer Carlton “Carly” Barrett, The Wailers present Aston Barrett, Jr. on drums. It’s startling how the young powerhouse delivers in his uncle’s inspiring landmark style. Lead singer Joshua David Barrett is a Rastaman by lifestyle and culture. Josh delivers Bob’s powerful message of Jah love and unity through his performance and interaction with the audience.

Also on stage are singer Shema McGregor, daughter of I Three Judy Mowatt; Owen “Dreadie” Reid on guitar/bass; and Javaughn Bond on keyboards. The performance anchor is engineer Dennis Thompson, the man responsible for The Wailers sound in stadiums, clubs, and studios throughout the ‘70s.

There are more than 250 million Bob Marley & The Wailers recordings sold, including 1977’s Exodus, anointed Best Album of the Century in 1999 by Time Magazine, and “One Love,” named Song of the Millennium that same year by BBC. Spin Magazine listed Bob Marley & The Wailers at #4 of the “50 Greatest Bands of All Times,” while The New York Times named Bob Marley the most significant musician of the 20th century. These accolades were made possible by the creative, timeless, and distinctive music, lyrics and production by these incomparable Wailers musicians.

Junior Jazz (Wendel Ferraro), Montego Bay, Jamaica, West Indies. Ferraro was nicknamed Junior in his early years and, inspired by his love of jazz, added the name of his favorite musical genre to complete his moniker. His early musical influence and experience was gleaned while performing in his local church choir. He met producer Lennie Hibbert who helped the young singer to polish his musical skills, although the duo did not record together owing to Junior Jazz’s resettlement in New York, USA. On his arrival in the Bronx, Junior Jazz’s connection with Hibbert resulted in him being recruited to accompany visiting Jamaican artists including, Beres Hammond, Gregory Isaacs, Judy Mowatt and the Mighty Diamonds. While supporting the cream of Jamaica’s recording industry Junior Jazz resolved to perform in his own right and formed his own local reggae band. In 1991, as a soloist, Junior Jazz recorded the George Benson hit, ‘The Greatest Love Of All’, which was featured on a Japanese reggae compilation. His interpretation of the song proved especially popular in the Far East. Through to 1997 Junior Jazz developed his career by performing at the renown S.O.B.’s nightspot, where a representative of Vincent Chin invited him to record his album debut. The release resulted in him being nominated in four categories at the Tamika Reggae Awards and global touring alongside artists such as Bunny Wailer, Buju Banton, Beenie Man and Shabba Ranks. Junior served as musical director/guitarist for Diana King. Junior also tours with world famous Monty Alexander. Junior is now the singer/guitarist for Reggae Force.

An Evening With Draco Rosa – 5/13/17

An Evening With Draco Rosa

@ Flamingo Theater at The Four Ambassadors Building in Miami.


Tickets: http://ticketfly.com/event/1405794


An Evening With Draco Rosa showcases a softer side of the multiple-time GRAMMY and Latin GRAMMY winning musician’s repertoire. The intimate tour will unveil new tracks from his forthcoming project.

Draco Rosa, aka Robi Draco Rosa, or simply Draco, is a multiple-time Grammy and Latin Grammy winning American-born Puerto Rican musician, singer, songwriter, composer, multi-instrumentalist, dancer, record producer and entrepreneur.

Born in Long Island, NY, Draco was raised surrounded by an eclectic mélange of musical tastes: from his mother’s affinity to the rock of the Beatles, Led Zeppelin, the Who and the funk-ridden R&B of the seventies, to his father’s propensity toward salsa—not just any salsa, but, as Rosa puts it, “the dark, aggressive kind.” At a young age, his family moved him to Puerto Rico, where he became a member of the increasingly popular band Menudo in the 1980s.

After leaving the band he moved to Brazil where he released two albums, achieving mainstream success. Afterwards he moved to California and formed the band Maggie’s Dream, which split after only one album, allowing him to resume his solo career. The singer and composer has released several studio and experimental albums, and has composed/produced multiple songs for major artists.

In 1996 he released the critically acclaimed Latin alternative rock album Vagabundo produced by Phil Manzanera, just before helping launch Ricky Martin’s musical career into a new global setting with the album “Vuelve”. Rosa wrote and produced various of Martin’s hit singles including “Maria”, “Living La Vida Loca”, “La Copa De La Vida”, “She Bangs”, among many others.

Phantom Vox Studios, Rosa’s own multi-media recording studio worked as Music Supervisor for Livin’ the Life, an independent movie that won the Best Film Award in the 1999 New York Latin Film Fest. The studio filmed and edited the video for “Commitment #4,” a track Draco composed and recorded in dedication to the freedom of the island of Vieques, a municipality of Puerto Rico.

In April 2011, Rosa was diagnosed with non-hodgkins lymphoma. This kept Rosa in a hiatus for a few years until his return in March 2012, when he started recording his award winning album “Vida” along side artists such as Juan Luis Guerra, Rubén Blades, Enrique Bunbury among others. In December 2012, he was declared cancer-free. After a very successful “Vida” tour in 2013, on December 9, 2013, his cancer had relapsed and was later overcome, becoming cancer free once again after a second (alogenic) bone marrow transplant.

Taking some time off to ground himself in his native Puerto Rico, Draco took advantage of this new awakening to write “El Secreto de La Vida A Base de Plantas” , with friend and renown nutritionist Nina Niessen. The book became an Amazon.com Top Seller in 2015, and a must read in Alternative Medicine literature. Also, Phantom Vox, his legendary recording studio, was relocated from Los Angeles to his 100 acre estate in Puerto Rico, ‘Hacienda Horizonte’, where his coffee brand “Café Horizonte” became a premium export brand, acknowledged among national and international coffee growers.

In recent months, Draco created a new local coffee brand in Puerto Rico called “Draco Rosa 100% Cafe de Puerto Rico” which directly impacts the local economy by increasing employment on the island and contributing to the growth of local coffee farming. He also created the Vox Forte Alliance, a foundation that strives to educate, create awareness and give support to stem cell transplant patients. He also sponsors the island’s Museo de Arte, Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, and set up an annual scholarship for outstanding students at Puerto Rico’s Music Conservatory.
