24-7 Spyz w/ CCDE [big room]
Formed in South Bronx, NY in 1986, the band is best known for mixing R&B, soul, funk and reggae with heavy metal and hardcore punk. The fact that they are African Americans playing variations of heavy metal led critics to compare them to bands such as Living Colour, Fishbone, and Bad Brains. They were early pioneers in the fusion of these particular music styles, influencing many artists and finding their own commercial success along the way. In the midst of creating music that was true to themselves, 24-7 Spyz also helped to shatter the stereotypes and dispel the myth that “Black Bands Don’t Rock” by releasing eight groundbreaking albums.
