ABOUT FADETOBLAQ: Tired of the same watered down sound that you get from today's music, Bill Perry, Zechariah Lloyd, and Charles Washington decided to put their musical genius together and form a band that did something that is unique....create music on the spot. But not just for one show..for every show.
They performed their first gig at the world famous Ajax in Oxford, MS and there they were introduced to the band's MC, Demetrios Brown. Demetrios (Hec4show) took the mic that night, freestyled over the already awesome band, and the rest is history. We began playing gigs on an almost weekly basis at places such as Irie, Proud Larry's, The Blind Pig, Zorba's, The Upper Room, Underground 119, and many others throughout the state of Mississippi. Catching the attention of Miami Mike, CEO of Palm Tree Ent., Fade2Blaq then began pulling in bigger and better crowds. Recently playing the Civic Center in Batesville, MS and a month long residency at Proud Larry's, Fade2Blaq is ready to unleash their sound on the rest of the U.S.A., and the world.
Charles Washington on saxophone, Bill Perry on keyboard, Silas Reed on guitar, Zechariah Tillotson on drums, and Demetrios Brown providing the lyrics, Fade2Blaq has a unique sound and undeniable delivery and energy that is going to change the face of music, and give Mississippi a new light in the music industry. In the words of Miami Mike, "I think that on a scale of 1 to 10, Fade2Blaq is a 10."
Funk. Soul. Blues. Hip Hop. Groove. Jazz. This is what Fadetoblaq is about. Completely improvised. Completely raw. Completely music.
