Heatbox, aka The One Man Entertainment System, is a Minneapolis-based creative force known for effortlessly blending vocal percussion and vocal turntablism with the simulation of horns, strings, and musical instruments. But that’s not all. His dedication to beatboxing and live looping has earned the respect of the hip-hop community and jam music scene throughout the United States and abroad. He’s no stranger to the road, having toured the US and Canada with fellow solo act That One Guy, and has opened for artists such as Boyz II Men, Wu Tang Clan, Warren G, and many others. Performances at festivals like Summerfest, and Big Wu Family Reunion, as well as international festivals have exposed numerous people to his diverse set of talents.
Heatbox’s discography includes three full-length studio albums, Entertainment (2006), System (2009), and Get Some (2013). Included on System was the video game, Ninja Strike, designed and programmed entirely by Heatbox himself. Look for Heatbox to continue to make a significant impact in the creative community through his much anticipated solo performances with the internationally acclaimed tap dance and music variety show, Feet Don’t Fail Me Now. You can also catch him co-hosting the G’Night Jam, a “late-night” talk/music/game show he co-created with fellow Minneapolis musician, Maxaphone. A creative force to behold, indeed.
