BOKU REVOLUTION X is a super, funky, highly, skilled, ethnomusicology, rap band...
Fronted by lead vocalist Jo D. Jonz with Mike Tree on drums and Billy White on keyboard. BOKU has performed all over Los Angeles to sold out crowds at the most premier venues in the city, such as House of Blues, El Rey, The Whiskey, The Roxy, Henry Fonda and the Troubadour. They were considered ahead of their time by legendary reggae group Morgan Heritage and garnered fans such as Grammy award winner Natalie Imbruglia. Their skill set is unmatched along with their innate, seamless, style, in which they morph, different, genres into their own unique sound.
They made the perfect opening act at the summer UCLA concert series, for The Roots. They are considered the second coming of The Roots, yet more conscious. They have also been compared to the likes of Outcast for Jonz’s lyrical content Mos Def and Big Krit on production by 24Our music magazine, earlier this year. Their song “Buddha Walk” was chosen as song of the day by Songshooter.com, And As they prepare for the first studio album and tour BOKU could not be any more suited for the current climate of music.
They are still in a class of their own and are able to rock any crowd from hardcore Hip-Hop to Punk, Rock & Grudge, which they so famously proved after arriving at a gig in a parking lot of a strip mall to a crowd of teenage punk fans. Surprised but undaunted BOKU took the stage and turned the skeptical crowd into true believers.
BOKU members are comprised of hip, futuristic, impresarios that have nothing but love and knowledge of music that will surely delight any listener, from small rooms to concert stadiums.
The new album is of course in their signature BOKU tradition, a hybrid of sounds and tones that have a bit of something for everyone, mixing, traditional hip-hop, trap, trip, soul, funk, rock and EDM.
As BOKU Revolution X prepares for their upcoming, international tour, they have been using New York City as their testing ground... With a new sound and a new audience, BOKU has wowed diverse New York audiences at such venues as SHRINE, THE WELL and SIDEWALK, where one impressed fan said after the show said to JONZ “It’s, your time.”
This band is in fact, what legends are made of and as understood by an unsuspecting, new fan, who happened to walk in on their performance in Harlem, said. “I was feeling down and I came in and heard you guys and y’all lifted my spirits. Thank you, you guys are so bad m’fo...” And with their forthcoming visual album “FANTASY MANIFESTO”, the world will surely know it and the music scene will be inspired and uplifted by their originality and musical integrity, forever!
