Ivan 'Choi' Khatchoyan - Drums/samples (Cookin on 3 Burners, the Traffic, Mayfield & Killahertz) Adam Rudegeair - Keys/tar (Lake Minnetonka, The Bowie Project, Black Wax) DJ Paso Bionic- scratchin/samples (TZU, Curse Ov Dialect) Craig Strain - Bass (Pickpocket) Brian El Dorado - MC (The Tuesday People) Matt Robb - Guitars (Killahertz) Percussion- Neda Rahmani
Playing all the classics from the bands first 4 records and a few rarities you will be hearing the music in full blown live mode. Be prepared to sing/rap along and be amazed at the bands ability to reinterpret songs written from samples into full live arrangement's. Support DJ's on the night performing both before, after and in between will be none other then PBS DJ's Mz Rizk and Miss Goldie.
