Giant Step's 1st Anniversary At The Florida Room With De La Soul And Brendan O'H
Giant Step presents De La Soul for the 1st anniversary of its monthly series at the gorgeous Florida Room at DELANO.
De La Soul is the Grammy Award-winning hip hop group best known for their eclectic sampling, quirky, surreal lyrics and contributions to the evolution of the jazz rap and alternative hip hop subgenres. Members Kelvin Mercer (Posdnuos, Mercenary, Plug Wonder Why, Plug One), David Jude Jolicoeur (Trugoy the Dove, Dave, Plug Two) and Vincent Mason (P.A. Pasemaster Mase, Maseo, Plug Three).
With its playful wordplay, innovative sampling, and witty skits, the band's debut album, 3 Feet High and Rising, has been hailed as a hip-hop masterpiece. De La Soul has influenced numerous other hip hop artists such as Camp Lo, Black Eyed Peas and Digable Planets. They were also instrumental in the early stages of rapper/actor Mos Def's career and are a core part of the Spitkicker collective.
Brendan O'Hara & The Big Bounce will support the night.
