  • Details

    Presented by the Cultural Center of Cape Cod on Saturday, June 25, from 7:30-9:30pm. Table seating, bring your own refreshments. For ages 21 and up. “If I make the room phunky, I’m playing my position.” So says The ZYG 808 (pronounced 'Zee Why Gee' Eight-Oh-Eight), a world-class, Grammy nominated producer, composer, performer, and recording artist of Afrobeats, EDM, and Hip-Hop. As a leading figure in the Southcoast Thump & Soul music movement, he is definitely doing his part to bring the good vibes music to the people. From coming on the scene at the age of 7 as an Afro-percussion session player, to headlining the Boston Jazz Fest at age 11, to becoming a Grammy nominated hip-hop artist and producer at age 15, The ZYG 808 has been a rising musical force … a creator of music ranging from feel good, ambient grooves and flows to energizing, hardcore, club banging beats topped with old-school style MCing and lyrics, or rawly mellow vocalizing. The ZYG 808’s sound can be described as a genre-bending blend of Afrobeats, rock, hip-hop, and jazz. When he’s not rocking the mic at a show, The ZYG 808 loves the background side of making music. He is a staff producer for Polyphonic Studios, working with edm, Afrobeats, rock, folk, and hip-hop artists. He is the drummer for The GroovaLottos, and DJs dance parties. “Music is how I connect with people. Melodies, grooves, beats, and stories play in my head all of the time. Other people continue to make incredible music. I feel a need to share it all, bring the good vibes, and get folks dancing and feeling right.” Visit the Cultural Center's website for information on their COVID policy. $25.
