Dilla Day NOLA VI hosted by Slangston Hughes w/ DJ E.F. Cuttin + The Grid Band + sg Nigel Hall

dilla day eflyer v2

Paying homage to the late, great hip-hop artist J Dilla with an all-star cast of New Orleans' best in hip-hop, breaks and soul. The GRiD makes sounds you never thought possible and will illustrate why they are your favorite rappers' favorite band. 

Nigel Hall is in many ways an artist who needs no introduction. An in-demand sideman, he’s built a mighty foundation of funk over the years onstage and in the studio with collaborators including the Warren Haynes Band, Jon Cleary, Soulive, Oteil Burbridge and Roosevelt Collier, Ledisi, the Soul Rebels, Lettuce and countless others. Legions of fans are already well in the know about Hall’s copious keyboard chops and powerful vocal style. But even to them, his Feel Music/Round Hill debut solo album will be a revelation – a confirmation that Hall has stepped out front and center into a creative space to call his own.

There is no substitute for a true, experienced and authentic DJ. Experienced DJ’s study their crowd. DJ E.F. Cuttin is a living crowd-barometer, playing the right music based upon the crowd’s: “ooohhhh’s and aaahhhhh’s” whenever a record is dropped.

Hosted by Slangston Hughes, a musician and an activist for the music community.
