Boogie Down Players
Based in: Brooklyn, NY
Nashville, Tennessee’s Boogie Down Players are living proof that raw talent, ambition and honesty can still prevail in an ailing music industry. What else would explain a blossoming career that has found over 600 shows on six national and nine regional tours, more than 10,000 copies sold of a debut album with no major distribution, and enough of a national fan base to directly finance a sophomore album.
By aligning their unwavering dedication to the do-it-yourself work ethic with a signature sound, singer Kenneth Griffen, bassist Curtis McLeod, and drummer Charles Kishpaugh have helped to define the landscape of today’s indie-music scene.
