With Confidence Steal the Show

St. Andrews Hall in Detroit was certainly rocking last night with the diverse styles of four power-punk-pop bands. It was the second stop of the Around the World and Back Tour for State Champs.

Don Broco

Don Broco set off the night with an energetic live show. At one point, they asked us to take a knee and get as low to the floor as we could. They then counted us in, and the entire club was jumping up and down.  It was intense. The floor had a bit of a give to it. It was literally bowing and bending beneath our feet.  The club must have invested money in this floor. I wasn’t worried for a moment that we would fall through it.

With Confidence

Next up was, With Confidence. They absolutely stole the show. As soon as they got on stage, the entire crowd pushed up about ten feet. And we were already jammed packed in the club. Now, with barely any personal space to move or breathe, we collectively responded to the energy the band put out. It was an amazing set and by far, the hypest one of the night.

Against the Current

Against the Current took the stage next with an amazing light show and powerful vocals. Even the bass drum was even illuminated and changing colours throughout the set. The lead singer brought some much-welcomed feminine energy to the night.

Headlining Act

The headling act, State Champs had the crowd singing along to every single song.

State Champs

One of the members is even from Detroit and was able to celebrate with the capacity crowd.

With Confidence (Detroit show)

This fabulous shot of the audience was taken by Brandon Lung. If you look closely, you can see in the middle wearing a fitted baseball cap.

I had a blast at this show. If you were there, please add a comment with any memories you have of the night too.

Live-N-Direct Celebrates 20 Years on the Air

lnd20

Live-N-Direct is celebrating 20 years on the airwaves with a big show this Friday at The Spice Factory in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. I am proud to be part of the celebrations and holding down the night on the 1s and 2s.

I have been a fan of this radio program from the very beginning. It was always a pleasure to turn on 93.3 CFMU and hear DJ Realistic cutting it up with great music, transitions, and mixes. Eklipz held in down on the microphone as the host and together their program delivered real hip-hop music and talk.

The baton has been passed a few times, but the show has continued to bless the airwaves every Saturday night from 9:00 – 10:30 p.m. since its debut in 1996. The show is now hosted by RashDon and The Oddfella and they are planning a huge celebration this Friday.

The award show / concert is proudly sponsered by PDN, Trenz Clothing, HamiltonHype.com, ReMax, Delta Nine, Mama Dee’s & View Magazine.

I hope to see you there.

WHAT: LND20 – Live-N-Direct’s 20th Anniversary Celebration
WHERE: The Spice Factory – 121 Hughson Street North, Hamilton, Ontario.
DOORS: 10:00 p.m.
TICKETS: $10 before Midnight

Doug Crawford

Doug Crawford, also known as one half of the Canadian rap group Secret Society, has broken out as a solo artist and is bringing his impetuous flow to the masses. Crawford’s ability to channel his thoughts and feelings into astute and opulent rhymes is what continues to draw in the fans, and the release of his 3rd album F.A.M.E – For All My Efforts makes a strong statement about his talent, his work ethic, and his drive to break through.

Crawford’s LA upbringing seeded the inspiration for his future endeavors and laid the foundations for working with some of the same artists that he grew up listening to – having opened for Ice Cube, Mobb Deep, and Snoop Dogg among others.

Crawford has sold tens of thousands of albums and collaborated with legends of the game, including Royce Da 5’9″, The Outlawz, and Obie Trice. His reach only widens via extensive international press attention and radio play, yet Doug Crawford’s focus remains about the impact his music can have on others. In his own words, “I work hardest on improving my music and changing it with the times.” He’s ambitious, up and coming, and hard to miss; Doug Crawford’s time is now.

Doug has been taking the global scene by storm now performing to larger audience than ever before. With fans now spanning the globe Doug is poised for breakthrough success. Watch for Doug Crawford to establish a serious international presence for himself in the near future!

Tyrone Parsons aka Knucklehead

Tyrone Parsons is an actor, best-known for the role of T, a member of J-Roc’s Roc Pile. from Trailer Park Boys.

Parsons was born and raised in Lucasville, Nova Scotia. Tyrone has had an active rap career under the name Knucklehead.  Since 1993, beginning with an association with Atlantic rap troupe DJ Ruckus and Mad Craz. This association landed him a record contract under which he collaboratively released two albums and conducted three tours with other rappers.

After appearing in a music video by Classified, he began to make the move to TV, landing an audition with Mike Clattenburg who was casting the Trailer Park Boys series at the start of its run. Even after landing the role of T, Parsons remained in the rap game, signing first with Change The Game Records (home to Anonamyss), then left with some the artists under this label to form Musik Overmatter, an independent label. Since then he has played a major part in the production and release of several albums, and released his first solo record, KnuckleUp in 2005, and a Mad Craz record in 2008.

In the show, T is sometimes referred to as T-Knuckles, a subtle nod to Parsons’ real life rap persona.

CheZZa Bio:

With the formation of IceBurgh Society Entertainment, CheZZa has grown within himself as well. As he is a member of Blaq Roche, within the group he helped form his voice, which has begun to bring about a new change to his music, and to the way he views the world.

CheZZa went from making music to please the masses, to now making music to heal the masses, and becoming the newest voice for the voiceless, and the new head to the headless. IceBurgh Society Entertainment is a reflection of this change, and it is only the beginning.

From his days of opening for Hip Hop groups such as D-Sisive, ONYX, Merkules, Snak the Ripper, JD Era and Rich Kidd just to name a few, he has begun to separate himself from the constraints of the Hip Hop genre so that he could become what he feels is needed in the world and our society.

Stay tuned for the newest wave of CheZZa, and open your mind and ears to the true new world order, which will be lead by CheZZa and the IceBurgh Society.
