Bio:
808 Music is a production, performance, and promotions company, specializing in Hip Hop, Reggae and R & B music. The 808 Band is a collective of the area's dopest musicians that backs independent artists and performs original break-based compositions. Bubblin up from mid-90's Oakland, Cali, The 808 Band began with Big G performing on drums with The Living Legends Crew, consisting of Mystik Journeymen, MURS, The Grouch, Eligh, Bicasso, Arata and Asop. The 808 Band soon expanded to the trio of Big G on drums, J-Mage on Keys and DJ Raw B on the tables. From there, the duo of J-Mage and Big G put in work in the bay as house band at La Pena's legendary Collective Soul series, backing such artists as: Zion I, Planet Asia, Goapele, Destiny Wolf, Aya De Leon, and recording with Pep Love, The Grouch, Deuce Eclipse, Bicasso and Maya Azucena. The 808 Band has also backed Andre Nickatina, Bicasso, Maya Azucena, Lost Souls. Big G is heard playing drums on SonicBloom's fresh new release "Paradigm Lift." The 808 Band can be seen (and heard) most recently backing Sonoma County's smooth, soulful crooner with a west coast reggae swing, Robert Herrera, along with Big G, guitarist Eric Sajovic and bassist Josh Barrett. Catch the crew at a show near you! What's an 808? The name "808" comes from the legendary Roland TR808 drum machine, used in countless Hip Hop songs throughout history. Big G plays a custom drum kit built by the African American Drum Company, designed to sonically mimic the famed Roland TR808 Drum machine, creating the bumping bass that has been a fixture in Hip Hop since the genesis. With a special technique, Big G is able to create this sound 100% natural, playing "the world's only acoustic 808 drum."
