BOKU REVOLUTION Xis #Flyah








BOKU REVOLUTION X is a force to be reckoned with. As if out of some coming book super group
that forms like Voltron like an indestructible machine formed by interconnecting each limb with a unique
operator with a specific skill set that compliments the whole. With high-energy, explosive performances
heavy rhythm with, conscious-elevating lyrics, head-banging grooves, BOKU has been defying
categorization, and expectations, since 2005. Following the whiplash success of their debut live album
performing multiple sold-out shows at the House of Blues, BB Kings, Viper Room, El Rey, Congo Room
just to name a few. Including as an open act for the roots at UCLA concert series. Creating fans all around
the globe. Garnering major label interest, and support from artists like Natalie Imbruglia and Morgan
Heritage, the members of BOKU have come back. With new beats, new members, new ideas, new sounds,
picked up from their prospective travels, and with the same exhilarating energy, BOKU is coming to a
venue near YOU.

group and lead MC. He is best known for his performances in such classic hit films as First time Felon,
HBO, Next Day Air, Midnight Son and the upcoming TVONE show The Big Leaf. But what most don’t
know is that he is vicious on the mic and lyrically sharp with metaphors and similes, that, twist and turn
into poetic masterpieces that leave the listener trapped in his web of creation. His musical background
extends as far back as childhood and he has shared stages with such rap greats as Nas, Tribe called quest,
De La Soul, Pharaoh Monch Naughty by Nature and Master Ace.

Michelle Rose Exclusive Interview

  Q:  What's it like growing up in Mpls?   Does the city have interesting stories about Prince?     A:  I only lived in Minneapolis until I was three, but I have fond memories of it.  Even now that I live in a suburb of Minneapolis, I still feel like I'm a part of Minneapolis.  I think a lot of Minnesotans have "Minneapolis Pride", even if they don't live in Minneapolis.  Minneapolis has so many fun things to see and do, and the arts are very important here, with so many theaters and live shows.     Prince put us on the map for music.  I hear Prince stories everywhere I go in Minnesota.  I've met so many people who were associated with Prince, including one of his dancers, and even a former Paisley Park employee working as a cashier at the local grocery store, so I've heard many Prince stories.  I wish I could've been a Chanhassen resident when Prince was still alive, because I know that many Chanhassen residents saw him casually riding his bike around

Planet Of Rhythm Exclusive interview

  GCoulda you tell us what it's like being from L.A.?   LA is a great city for music, like any other large city.   Of course the downsides are things like traffic etc. but it is a wonderful place to create music, to hear music and experience great performances. Could you name the members in Planet of Rhythm and the roles they play? Doug Hafford (me): songwriter, singer, guitar Greg Thomas: Producer Rhythm Guitar, Bass, backup vocals Chad McKinsey: Producer, Drums, Guitar, backup vocals Juliet Roberts: Lead and backup vocals (what a talent she is) Elliott Jason: Lead Guitars Jorge Orellana:  Bass, Sax    Who inspired you guys to make electric blues rock music; is it something you guys just have in common?   The music comes from our love of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s style rockers.   Of course much of that was inspired by earlier artists such as Robert Johnson, or Howlin’ Wolf etc.  We love the simplicity mixed with great musical performances, overdriven guitars and a strong driving bea
