Thanksgiving at The Grog Shop w/ our pals Broccoli Samurai & Smoke Screen!
Broccoli Samurai broke ground as the brainchild of Cleveland natives Ryan “Bruce” Hodson and Chris Walker. In December 2009, bassist Steve Fade joined them, and in 2010 they set out their journey to make a footprint in the electronic jam scene. For nearly 2 years, the psychedelic overtones of progressive electronica with a heavy drum and bass groove have thrilled audiences across the Midwest. Their positive vibe, energetic stage presence, and undeniable talent have earned them praise among their peers. “Broccoli Samurai inject much-needed playfulness and humanity into the chill out genre. As they put it, “Arrive in good humor, proceed accordingly.”” - Scene Magazine The mind-altering, dub-stepping, trance-grooving, zone out or get off your ass and dance music breathes a breath of fresh air into the jamtronica scene.
Since 2007, the group has released 5 full-length projects. 2010's greatly-received "Imagination Beyond Illustration" LP was followed by the adventurous remix project "Re:Imagined".
Chemist and Mooke, the two MCs that make up Smoke Screen have influences in disparate realms of music - alternative, Top 40, underground etc... but when the two Cleveland MCs combine, they have an explosive and party-s
Smoke Screen has done countless shows throughout the East Coast and Midwest promoting their releases. They have rocked the stage with the likes of Black Star (Mos Def & Talib Kweli), Girl Talk, Das Racist, Wale, Big Sean, Mr. Lif, Evidence, Brother Ali, Clipse, Wiz Khalifa, Kid Cudi, Mac Miller, and more.
After a Spring 2011 East Coast Tour, performing at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the legendary Cleveland Public Hall and rocking the stage at The House of Blues in Cleveland, Smoke Screen remains consistent and innovative and they are continuously evolving and highly ambitious.
With a new EP titled Ice Cold Water, Smoke Screen is sure to keep you hydrated!
