I’ll let Che explain this one…
11/19 I performed my first live set with my band The Grand Union on the legendary and soon to closed (next month) Knitting Factory’s main stage…..
The Grand Union line up features Hassan (of Sankofa) on guitar, Big Reg (also of afro-punk rock group Sankofa) on bass, Jared Siegel on Drums and 6th Sense on keys (oh can’t forget additional vocals from my dude Von Pea lol!).
I’ve had a lot of great memories @ Knitting rocking Sucio Smash’s Lunchroom events, to drinking a 40oz with J Ro from Tha Liks, and almost getting beat up by Jean Grae for knowing words to an unreleased song of her’s. Can’t forget the time Just Blaze came out for a beat society and damn near deafened the crowd with what would later be Saigon’s “Come On Baby…” have KF stories for days! I’m going to miss that venue…..
