Upcoming Events for The Nth Power

A panel of expert musicologists recently formulated an intricate mathematical equation in order to define the phenomenon that a new super-group based out of New Orleans has been creating:

Nikki Glaspie
Nigel Hall
Nick Cassarino
Nate Edgar
N'Weedie Braimah

Seeing the newest, hottest musical project known as The Nth Power perform live is going to change your life. They will inspire you to dance, groove, make love, or just stand there with goose bumps. It is extremely challenging to define exactly what single type of music that The Nth Power represents and what musical genre they should be classified in. They will grab your attention and your imagination, taking you on a euphoric space cruise that visits the planets known as Funk, Psychedelic Rock, Jazz, Neo-Soul, World-Beat and R&B.

Very few bands currently pack as much punch in a four-piece, all-analog ensemble as The Nth Power. Here is their recipe: Start with Nikki Glaspie’s deep pocket, remarkable chops, incredible feel and sexy vocals. Next, mix in Nigel Hall’s energetic and soulful vocals and his innate ability to shred any keyboard-based instrument. Then add Nick Cassarino’s fluent rhythm guitar vocabulary, infatuating solos and magnetic vocals with Nate Edgar’s miraculous ability of holding down the deepest bass lines while simultaneously treating his listeners to wicked melodic fills. They have also recently added master drummer, percussionist and afro-cuban drum specialist: N'Weedie Braimah, to the lineup, making theire rhythm and sound more wicked than ever.

The 5 N’s (Nikki/Nigel/Nick/Nate/N'Weedie) all unanimously claim that they would rather play music together than do anything else in the world right now. When all the N’s find themselves together in the same room with their instruments in their hands, an overwhelming wave of love, passion, excitement, and creativity fills the air. To be a part of this vibe is a unique transformational and inspirational opportunity.

Each member of The Nth Power currently plays in a multitude of other professional music endeavors including Dumpstaphunk, Warren Haynes, Lettuce and John Brown’s Body, Big Daddy Kane and Jennifer Hartswick, Kreative Pandemonium to name a few... However, the magnitude of positive responses and encouragement that have followed The Nth Power’s recent debut performances is incomparable and insurmountable to any other music project they have ever been in. They are completely prepared to take this new project to the highest level of musical achievement and accomplishment possible!

Upcoming Events for DJ Craze

Craze's life is a legacy of rags to riches, geek to chic, no-name to world fame. He never had it easy from fleeing battle in Nicaragua at the age of 3 to a geeky adolescence to Hurricane Andrew hitting Miami in 1992 nor did have ever have any coattails to ride; his is a story that's an uphill battle, but a story that ends right at the top. "My mom always taught me I could do anything I put my mind to. So when she asked what I wanted to do with my turntables, I told her, 'Be the best DJ in the world,'" Craze casually laughs. And that he proved 3 times at the DMC World Championships, an unprecedented record, and a title that no other solo DJ has yet to match. While Craze is regarded internationally and unquestionably as one of the best scratch DJs in the world, it's still astonishing to see his overwhelming number of titles on paper: Craze has won first place for the USA DMC Championships in 1998, World ITF Scratch Off Championships in 1998, ITF Western Hemisphere Scratch Off Championships (1998, '99), Winter Music Conference Scratch Off Champion (1996, '97, '98, '99), East Coast DMC Championships (1997), East Coast Rap Sheet Championships (1996) and Zulu National Championships (1995, '96), to name but a few. Additionally, DJ Craze claimed 2nd place in the first DMC Team Championship with his Allies' crew (which included fellow champions A-Trak and Infamous) in 1999 and then in 2000, the Allies' won the Team Championship title, taking it from the previous year's winners the Scratch Perverts.

Upcoming Events for GRIZ

GRiZ: "A true pioneer and master of musical expression, GriZ (Grant Kwiecinski) stands head-and-shoulders above the competition in terms of the sheer variety of his ever-evolving technical prowess. A tremendously passionate and soulful producer, GriZ has a peerless knack for creating profoundly engaging melodies to offset the presence of his phenomenally designed bass. Where many artists become mired in a over-simplified and standardized method of production for the sake of creative efficiency; GriZ has no qualms sacrificing speed for the sake of quality, technical diversity, and an unrelenting devotion to progress and dynamism. Beginning his saga as a producer at the young age of fourteen, it is immediately evident that his talent and devotion will lead him on a journey of exceptional musical diversity and exploration. From funky rhythms to jazzy melodic embellishment, GriZ effortlessly incorporates his instrumental zeal for the saxophone with his lifelong dedication to soulful, laser-infused beat-making. This is only the beginning for Grant, and already the stylistic range of his material is both inspirational and utterly awe-inspiring." -Written by Ethan Baer (SubSynthesis.com)
