BEHIND THE GROOVE

LAST WEEK I FLEW DOWN TO PHILLY WITH AKROBATIK TO CONNECT WITH THE ROOTS AND ANTIBALAS, FOR THE SHOW THAT WENT DOWN LAST NIGHT... WHICH WAS BANANAS. HISTORIC SHIT YALL. BOSTON DOES NOT GET IT IN LIKE THIS..... I WILL POST VIDEO OF THAT SOON...AS LUCK WOULD HAVE IT....I RAN OUT OF VIDEO WHEN ANTIBALAS GOT ON STAGE WITH THE ROOTS AND JAMMED TOGETHER DOING THE DOOBIE BROTHERS WHAT A FOOL BELIEVES!!!
YALL MUST UNDERSTAND !! THE AMOUNT OF RAW TALENT, PASSION, LOVE, AND PROFESSIONALISM IN ONE ROOM....THE ENERGY WAS INCREDIBLE. TOP NOTCH MUSICIANSHIP.
AT ONE POINT I HAD THE IDEA (SHOUTS TO EDAN!) OF BOTH BANDS COVERING CAT STEVENS "DOG WAS A DOUGHNUT".
THAT ONLY GOT AS FAR AS THE ROOTS ROCKING IT...ACTUALLY KILLING IT PUTTING SOME JAZZY CHORDS ON IT.
?LOVE AND I COULD HAVE NERDED OUT ON THAT TIP FOR YEARS ON END....BREAK AFTER BREAK AFTER BREAK.

ANYWAY, HERES THE 1ST ROUND OF VIDEO, CHECK OUT THE BIG HOMMIE ?LOVE ROCKING THE DRUMS FOR ANTIBALAS DOING ONE OF FELA'S ILLEST JAMS ....MORE TO COME STAY TUNED. BIG SHOUTS TO AKROBATIK !
