Known as a powerhouse band that packs dance floors, equally impressive are the resumes of the individuals members, two of whom have played for a who's who list of classic and contemporary soul artists. At the age of 19, drummer Eddie Ray Johnson became a much sought after touring sub drummer, having played for Rufus Thomas, Wilson Pickett, Bobby Bland and West Side Soul; while keyboardist Mwalim DaPhunkee Professor has such artists as Angie Stone, The Four Tops, and a myriad of r&b, hip-hop, and house music studio sessions under his belt. Both Mwalim and bassist, Richard Johnson played at Carnegie Hall before they were in high school, and Mwalim was one of the youngest session players in EMI Record history. Percussionist and MC, The ZYG 808, who is 15 and on the rise as a solo hip-hop artist played his first studio session at 7 and was headlining the Boston Jazz Fest at age 12.
Labor Day weekend brings The GroovaLottos back to New York City where S.O.B.'s will be the place to be.
