Tampa Florida’s Beat down Band (BDB) is living proof that raw talent and ambition can still prevail in the music Industry.
Composed of manager/vocalist/keyboardist/bassist Jack “BEST” Capheart, vocalist/bassist Joseph “Adverage Joe” Butler, saxophonist Marcus “MB” Boothe, drummer Nelson “Pop That” White, keyboardist Derrick “Scoota Keyz” Amos and lead vocalist Marcus “MVP” Vance. This group of aspiring men have aligned their unwavering dedication to a work ethic that has manifested a signature sound that has defined the landscape of today’s R&B and Soul Music scene. If you’re wondering where the name “Beat Down Band” originated, “381, It’s a long story”.
The backbone of their work stylistically has a range of influences from Quincy Jones, Prince, Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Earth Wind & Fire, The Eagles, The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Mint Condition, Maroon 5 and Musiq Soulchild. The bands attitude and work ethic reflect a mantra that says “anything is possible if you just put your mind to it.” Being exposed to music at such a young age BDB is firmly rooted in many different musical traditions, including R&B, Gospel, Soul, Blues and Jazz music. With their unpredictable musical arrangements, jabbing hooks and sensual structure they have become one of the tightest bands in the Bay area. By returning to their own musical influence the Beat Down Band gives us a unique reflection and chronicle of traditional American music at its best, creating a library of music that will stand the test of time.
Eyes have not seen, Ears have not heard of what’s about to go down with BDB. These young men are definitely a force to be reckoned with. You have not experience a Bombostic performance until you “Rock With The Beat Down Band”. Stay tuned, they may be in your city next, you better come Get You Some.
