About

Inner City - About band

 

"YOU. WILL. NOT. STOP. DANCING. The best part about living in the '2000's is the different genres of music that smash like atoms, creating a brilliant flash of energy. Such is the genesis of the Inner City All Stars, who slams together old-school funk, New Orleans jazz, D.C. GO-GO, rap from back in the day and blaxploitation wah-wah rock into one big booty-shakin' jam." - JONANNA WIDNER, DALLAS OBSERVER
