BIO (From the Monterey County Weekly)
DDL Roundhouse (a reference from the video game Street Fighter II) was born in 2005 after an impromptu jam session in a tiny Hollywood apartment. The eight-piece ensemble is not the quintessential hip-hop outfit: each member of the group brings a different musical style resulting in a melding of funk, jazz, rock, blues and rap. At times, the LP Connect sounds like The Roots; at other times it sounds like The Red Hot Chili Peppers. [AJ]
The group consists of: Christopher “A.I.” Cruz (Vocals), Barry “DJ Retrospekt” Fernando (DJ), Jason Agpalo (Keys), Alex Messano (Guitar), Kristofer Musni (Bass), Michael D Chef (Vocals), Rob Abergas (Drums), Erika Jaye (Vocals), Taylor Wheeldin (Trumpet).
