Black Alley - Rock Live Act in Washington DC

Black Alley Short Info

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, jazz, soul, and rock to create a sound and genre all their own; they call it “Hood Rock”. The band is one, each musician surrendering to the union of sounds, each delivering music from their soul, while they are 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 has become 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 Big KRIT & Wale, and the legendary Sheila E, Black Alley is untouchable, striving to rock harder and heavier each time they unite and contribute to the greater good of music.

BLACK ALLEY has been featured on various media outlets to include Okayplayer, EarMilk, ThatsEnuff.com, Washington City Paper, and Washington Post. BLACK ALLEY's music catalog contains two critically acclaimed independent releases. In 2012, the band released "Soul. Swagger. Rock. Sneakers". The 16-track compilation features original music from Black Alley in collaboration with Raheem DeVaughn, Nicholas Ryan Gant and Phil Ade. Their follow up album, "Black Alley: Live from the RNR Hotel" is the live recording project chronicling their powerful performance at their SOLD OUT album release event. Both albums are available on iTunes and BlackAlley.Bandcamp.com. The video for their single "Artist Prayer" is in heavy rotation on VH1 Soul and the video for their single “Bad Girl” recently debuted exclusively on MTVHive.com.

BLACK ALLEY has been honored to share the stage with renowned artists like Common, Erykah Badu, Hiatus Kaiyote, Talib Kweli, MC Lyte, Doug E Fresh, Gin Blossoms, Marsha Ambrosius, Mack Wilds, Raheem DeVaughn, Wale, Bilal, Busta Rhymes, Scarface, and Chrisette Michele just to name a few.
