BLAKDENIM infuses hip-hop, funk, rock and soul with lyrical content that ranges from the serious to the absurd, the tone from sweet to heavy, all connected by head nodding melodies. The lineup includes drums, bass guitar, piano, trumpets, saxophone, a female vocalist and an emcee. With a style that defies genre expectations, they have been compared to the likes of The Roots, The Fugees, Rage Against the Machine and even Earth Wind and Fire. The band has created serious buzz with live appearances at venues big and small including Ottawa Bluesfest, Quebec City’s Festival d’été, The Montreal Jazz fest, The Burlington Jazzfest and The NAC. Catch this band on the way up!
