Jubee and The Morning After:
JuBee and the Morning After is "a venture for the charismatic frizzy fro’d half of City Council, who brings a passionately nerdy group of backing rockers to flesh out a pop sound that will surprise you" (Macon Telegraph).
JuBee and the Morning After features the magnetic vocal delivery of JuBee, a rapper that provides "deep, emotion-filled lyrical creations" (Savannah Urban Arts Festival), and a slew of musicians with accolades of their own right. The rhythm section is comprised of Captain Danny Effin Davis (bass, backing vocals) and Alex Scarborough (drums) whom hail from Athens, Ga based R&B conglomerate Dope John Paul. Matt Moncrief a singer/songwriter from Atlanta, Ga, Austin Young on Keys/Sax round out the permanent members of the group. Influenced by the transparent honesty of Hip-Hop fundamentals and the energetic groove of 1970’s funk and R&B, JuBee and the Morning After is an eclectic blend of Indie Rock, Hip-Hop, throwback Funk, and look forward soulful southern Rap. Its so good that the hipsters might shed the hoodies and wish they could dance.
With dozens of mixtapes under his belt, a fresh new EP and LP in 2011, and having shared the spotlight with Dumpstaphunk, Deltron 3030, Gym Class Heroes, Yelawolf, Curren$y, The Cool Kids, Raheem, and Al Scarborough of Stillwater, JuBee and his team have the experience and the drive to bring a party so hard that fans will never forget JuBee and the Morning After the morning after.
Squisch formed as a collaboration between Alex Eversbusch and Andrew Varela of Lazy Locomotive, and Ryan Banks of The Kinky Aphrodisiacs after they shared the stage at the Georgia Theatre in the summer of 2013. Squisch is a genre-shuffling enigma that will keep you grooving all night.
