ABOUT BACK ALLEY
BLACK ALLEY has been pushing the art of music to its rhythmic limits for some time now. Determined to create a unique musical elixir, BLACK ALLEY has taken the finest ingredients of funk, hip-hop, soul and rock to create their own genre-bending sound called “Hood Rock”. The band is one, each musician surrendering to the union of sounds, each delivering music from their soul, while in dialogue with one another through their instruments. Each member of this collective is essential to the workability and funkability of the unit, which is BLACK ALLEY.
BLACK ALLEY is one of the most followed, trendsetting and sought-after music groups hailing from the nation's capital. With endorsements from national recording artists such as Grammy Award nominee Raheem DeVaughn, Hip Hop standouts Common, Big
KRIT & Wale, and legendary musicians Doug E. Fresh and Sheila E, Black Alley is untouchable, striving to rock harder and heavier each time they unite and contribute to the greater good of music.
