Black Alley
Black Alley
Birthed in Southeast DC, Black Alley is known for pushing the art of music to its rhythmic limits. Determined to create a unique musical elixir, Black Alley takes the finest ingredients of hip-hop, soul, and rock to create their own genre-bending sound called #HoodRock. Each band member surrenders to the union of sounds, making each musician essential to the workability and funkability of the collective, known as Black Alley.

Black Alley is one of the most followed, trendsetting and sought-after music groups hailing from the nation's capital. With endorsements from national recording artists such as Grammy Award nominee Raheem DeVaughn, Hip Hop standouts Common, Big KRIT & Wale, and legendary musicians Doug E. Fresh and Sheila E, Black Alley is untouchable, striving to rock harder and heavier each time they unite and contribute to the greater good of music.

With celebrity fans ranging from Wiz Khalifa and Pusha T to Little Dragon and Lykke Li, Tabi Bonney is not your average pop star. Born Tabiabue Bonney in Lomé Togo, West Africa, the singer/rapper grew up in Washington, D.C. and now resides in Los Angeles. The son of revolutionary, African musician Itadi Bonney, Tabi began performing in high school and formed the group Organized Rhyme while in college. The group released material independently and opened for acts like LL Cool J, Cam’ron andOutkast.

In 2006, Tabi released his first solo album “A Fly Guy’s Theme” featuring the breakout singles “Beat Rock” and “The Pocket”. Subsequent releases “Dope”, “Fresh” and “The Summer Years feature cameos from Wale, Pusha T, Curren$y, Murs, Fat Trel, Raheem Devaughn, Nicole Wray and his father Itadi Bonney. He has also been featured on tracks from artists ranging from Shwayze to Good Charlotte.

He’s shared the stage and the road with Wiz Khalifa, Wale, Miguel, K’naan, John Forte, Shwayze/Mickey Avalon, Murs, Alice Smith and been a part of the Rock The Bells Tour, the Hip Hop & Love Tour and DC’s Trillectro Festival. 2018’s forthcoming EP “Bon Voyage” finds Tabi reaching back to his African roots in a fresh, new way with repeat collaborating producer DJ Smiles Davis.
Chuck Starr
Chuck Starr
Versatile is the best way to describe R&B/Pop singer-entertainer Chuck Starr. Chuck performs a dynamic range of music using an classic 90's feel with a modern sound and smooth vocals.
Footwerk
Footwerk
Footwerk, an Indie-Pop band vocally led by 'friend-zoned' power couple Kyle and Melissa. Empowered by the DIY mentality, calling their high energy live shows 'one night stands' and having 'no strings attached' relationships with fans have put the cult in pop culture!
