On the ‘Bobbito Garcia Show’ Alongside the Legendary Crazy Legs of The Rock Steady Crew – 07.29.13

photo (2)

 

I’ll just tell y’all this… It was already an honor to get an email from the brother Bobbito Garcia not too long after checking the D.C. screening of his new street ball documentary Doin’ It In The Park letting me know that the door is open to be a guest on his brand new radio show whenever we could schedule a time to do so…. AND to sit in on the show for its entire duration (two hours)…. But on the way up while cussing out every toll booth I passed through giving money away to roads and freeways that never really improve, my day flipped real quick. I learned that Crazy Legs, the president and one of the original members of the LEGENDARY Rock Steady Crew would also be on the show with me. I was buggin’ out, calling folks like, “YOOOOOOOOO!!”

Anyway, it was real dope to be able to kick it with two kats whom I consider to be legends and who have both played pivotal roles in not only hip-hop music, but culture overall. The great thing about it all is that it was documented and archived so those of you who missed it live can check it out right here…

“…Give it up for Lorenzo Ferguson a/k/a Zo!, y’all!!” © Phonte in LA • Photo by Kris Perry (Oct. 2012)

2012 has been another helluva year. I got to do some traveling and play shows in LA, NYC, DC, Chicago, Detroit, Nashville, St. Louis, Bethesda, MD, Greensboro, NC, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Columbia MD, Boston, Virginia Beach, Raleigh, Vienna, VA, Memphis, Indianapolis, San Francisco, and Phoenix …..and Durham, NC for this coming New Year’s Eve. I completed my first year as a full-time musician after the school I taught music at closed last year – I was then able to continue teaching by conducting individual piano lessons and workshop to groups of young ones. I began endorsing Moog Music, received another standing ovation during a performance back home in Detroit, and got the bulk of the recording finished for my newest album ManMade. Sy Smith and I did some touring this year playing big solo shows at DC’s Blues Alley and NYC’s Blue Note and received big performance props from Sheila E while I was back on the road with The Foreign Exchange who wrapped up performances for an album we have been touring for two years, Authenticity. I hit my ten-year anniversary of releasing music as well. Outside of all that, it was a fairly quiet twelve months……….

…Looking forward to 2013. Enjoy the photos!!
