Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Suburban Thug Soundsystem has spent the last 15 years traversing the underground Detroit scene, always floating just beneath the radar, performing with such varied talent as urban folk singer/songwriter and poet Blair, illbient duo Amorphous Puddle of Sound (with Mike Woo, a.k.a Milieu), jazz-noise improv quartet Illume (with Brandon Murphy, Milieu, and Chris Winter), improv ambient group Quaker Cage (featuring Faruq Z. Bey), and as a performance DJ under the name The Other DJ. He has had the pleasure of performing with a large variety of artists from sometimes seemingly disparate genres and levels of recognition in such historic venues as CBGB's, The Bowery Poetry Club, The Old Town School of Folk Music, Hart Plaza (for the Detroit Tricentennial), and The Knitting Factory. Faruq Z. Bey, Stevie Wonder, Kevin Saunderson, Doormouse, James Blood Ulmer, Todd Osborn, David Blair and Shaun Reeves are just a few of the great talents he has shared a bill with. He has recently found a wider international audience in Germany, the UK, Belgium, and Japan. In the future Suburban Thug Soundsystem will pursue an even wider international audience through clever DIY advertising via the internet. He is available for immediate booking.
