The Correspondents tour dates
Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five formed in the South Bronx of New York City in 1978 and comprised five rappers Mele Mel, The Kidd Creole, Keith Cowboy, Scorpio, and Rahiem, together with one DJ, Grandmaster Flash. The group's use of turntablism, break-beat deejaying, choreographed stage routines and lyricism was a significant force in the early development of Hip Hop music.
Whilst rapping a scat routine at a party for a friend who had just joined the US Army, Cowboy began scat singing the words "hip/hop/hip/hop" in a way that mimicked the rhythmic cadence of the marching drill. He then worked the "hip hop" cadence into part of his performance. This evolved into the term 'Hip Hop', which was later adopted by the industry.
The Furious Five tour dates
Slamboree is a live band with a Smörgåsbord of circus performers, daredevils and entertainers. They take each show as it comes, assembling a different crew from their collective for each show and every gig is very different to the last.
Musically it fuses bass-driven beats with live guitars, percussion, loops, visuals, brass, pyrotechnics and performance. The genres bounce around breakbeat, dubstep, drum & bass, dub, techno and electro fused with balkan, folk, and 'gypsy' flavours - all original and all live.
Within their short time on the road, they've been fortunate enough to perform their live shows at some amazing places such as Glastonbury Festival, Electric Picnic, Boomtown, Shambala, Beatherder, Kendal Calling and the River Thames in London.
