Keyboardist-drummer-producer Asha Santee (BOOM) and vocalist-songwriter Jennifer Patience Rowe (scat) came together in the fall of 2012. They have since released their first mixtape, The Trilogy, performed at several venues in Chicago on their “Peace & Body Roll Tour” and gained support from gospel music legend Richard Smallwood.
During their residency at Joe’s Movement Emporium, they present a Hoop Jam, a Community Sing and a Showing and Conversation.
