Live Music at City Bar: Crizzly - Electro Rouge

  • City Bar Baton Rouge

Electro Rouge & City Bar Baton Rouge Presents...

Crizzly


Anytime he hits the stage, Crizzly has no choice but to go hard. Channeling hyperactive energy and uncontainable swagger, the San Antonio DJ and producer ignites crowds with an intoxicating, infectious, and inimitable blend of dubstep and hip-hop, which he affectionately terms, "Crunkstep". 

Music became a part of Chris Lee "Crizzly" Marshall's life at a very young age. As he recalls, he discovered it as a child-insisting on making his kindergarten class listen to the Space Jam soundtrack during naptime-but he didn't formally embrace it until high school. Picking up a set of turntables, he scored his first gigs at birthday parties. At 19-years-old, production began to inspire him, and he started remixing rap songs from YouTube with a distinctive flare. He released his own takes on Waka Flocka Flame's "Hard in Da Paint" and "Snap Back Swag" from AJ Hernz, and suddenly he set the blogosphere ablaze. Numerous web sites began reposting these cuts, and Crizzly developed a fervent following.

However, some guerilla tactics helped garner even more high profile attention for the fledgling DJ. After playing 2011's Electric Daisy Carnival Las Vegas, he took 20 USB drives with his music and distributed them to some of the festivals top names. "I made it a mission to pass them out to my favorite producers," he remembers with a smile. "I was nervous, but I gave it to Diplo. He listened, and now he plays 'Hard in Da Paint' in his set."

Meanwhile, he slipped "Snap Back Swag" into a playlist on Skrillex's tour bus, catching the megastar's ear in the process. As a result, Skrillex added the remix into his set as well. Soon after, even more support came in addition to Skrillex and Diplo with Excision, Datsik, and many others introducing his remixes into their shows.

Marshall’s instantly recognizable style proliferates through inventive bootleg interpretations of acts like Skee Lo, Macklemore, A$AP Rocky, and Lil’ Flip, his tasteful official remixes, and his legendary original works. His works have tallied up tens of millions of plays collectively, catching the eyes and ears of bloggers, tastemakers, promoters, and fans alike.

He describes his sound and style best though. "It's definitely a mixture of two different worlds, dance music and hip-hop," he goes on. "People can connect because there's a lot going on, and there's more than one dimension. The audience responds immediately too. Since there's a half- time feel, the blend just makes sense. It feels right to me."

Most importantly, it feels right to audiences. He's been on a highly successful tours with 12th Planet and Flinch, and shows alongside Zed's Dead. In the midst, he was featured in the July 2012 issue of Spin. He's been on the bill for the installments of Nocturnal [California and Texas], Electric Daisy Carnival [Las Vegas, New York, Puerto Rico, Orlando, and Colorado], Atlantic Impulse, Electric Forrest, White Wonderland, Escape From Wonderland Lights All Night in Dallas, Global Dance in Kansas City and Denver, and more. 

In fact the best way to experience Crizzly is to actually be in the audience. "I play a lot of hard stuff," he concludes. "I expend a ton of energy. I want the fans to get buck wild, crazy, and crunk. I want them to make some bad decisions and have fun." One thing's for sure: there ain't no party like a Crizzly party.

While his chart-topping tracks certainly bring fans in, Crizzly’s live performances keep them coming back. Lovingly referred to as his Slice Gang, this dedicated group of bass-hungry fans eagerly line up at notable clubs and major festivals to experience the encompassing, head-banging, unrelenting sets that come from this storied producer/DJ. That’s the true magic with Crizzly’s music: From grand stages at EDC, Lollapalooza, Coachella and Warped Tour to sold out clubs across the globe, people aren’t just listening; they’re experiencing.

Bruce Willis is still not entirely sure what this movie was about...but in the late 90s!?...Bruce signed up for whatever. BWubs' character in this particular film is also forever down. Bruce plays Korbin Dallas - taxi driver with an action hero past, patiently waiting for his next adventure...and love interest. 

There is no denying that this movie is awesome and it uses special effects perfectly. Why this unique story is getting Spoofed is beyond us, but here you go! It will definitely be a good time. The folks with FD Comedy know their stuff, and will celebrate this film with a lot of laughs... and drinks.

Live Music at Manship Theatre: Quinn Sullivan

  • Manship Theatre

Quinn Sullivan has been a music professional for more than 75 percent of his life. He’s shared the stage with Buddy Guy, Eric Clapton, Los Lobos, The Roots, Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi and Joe Bonamassa, and he opened for B.B. King, who later invited him to play his treasured “Lucille” guitar. He has performed on concert and festival dates throughout the United States – including at storied venues like Hollywood Bowl, RFK Stadium and Madison Square Garden – traveled overseas – performing at both the Montreux Jazz Festival and India’s Mahindra Blues Festival – and played several editions of the Experience Hendrix Tour, backed by Jimi’s original bassist Billy Cox. He’s also appeared on national TV, with guest appearances on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Oprah, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Conan and twice on The Ellen DeGeneres show.

Yes, Sullivan has packed some extraordinary experience into his decade-long career, and that’s even more remarkable when you consider that he’s only 17. His third studio album, Midnight Highway, was produced by multi GRAMMY® winner Tom Hambridge – who also does double duty as Quinn’s studio and road drummer – and will be released on January 27th in North America, and on March 24th in the rest of the world. The album is yet another milestone in Quinn’s extraordinary journey, which began with him jamming with the kids music combo Toe Jam Puppet Band at age three, appearing on Ellen when he was six, and being taken under the wing of blues legend Buddy Guy at age eight, whose protégé he remains to this day.
