NIGHTSHIFT: Bang Like an 808 with The GRiD Band and special guests Nigel Hall, Khris Royal and Kayla Jasmine followed by DJ Dynamite Dave Soul

BR

A tribute to the most influential drum machine of all time and the music it birthed from funk, R&B, Hip Hop and Rock.

THE GRÏD is a Hip Hop/modern funk band led by drummer and singer A.J. Hall. With a thick low end sound complimented by lush synths and unique guitar parts, the band puts forth a vibe reminiscent of 90s hip hop production and the classic 1980s Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis sound. In 2016 THE GRÏD released their debut EP "Evasive Maneuvers" as a snap shot of the band's sound and attitude. 

Those who know of “The Dynamite DaveSoul” or have heard him spin before acknowledge him for his boundless taste in music and ability to bridge the gap between young & old music lovers alike. Dave is know for spinning grooves spanning Jazz, Reggae, Afrobeat, Funk, Disco and Soul.

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.

Khris Royal was born to be a musician. This young and exceptional New Orleans native began playing the saxophone at seven years old, and producing and writing music at fourteen. Royal’s musical talents were nurtured at the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (NOCCA) High School, in classrooms once shared by jazz greats such as Wynton Marsalis, Branford Marsalis, Terrence Blanchard, and Donald Harrison. When Royal was only 16, he was granted a full scholarship to the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA and his career has taken off since then. In addition to leading his own band, Khris Royal & Dark Matter (see below), Khris Royal has been the only horn player in George Porter Jr. & the Runnin’ Pardners since Fall 2009.  In 2011, Royal joined as a touring member of the popular West Coast rock/reggae band, Rebelution.
