Black Stax lineup is:  MC Silas Blak, MC Jace ECAj and vocalist Felicia Loud, who together create an eclectic, urban sound. The tour also features  Owuor Arunga on trumpet

In Portland, also taking the stage to entertain you, will be homegrown rapper Mic Crenshaw, DJ Neebor, DJ LUVVA J,  and the three first ladies of Portland hip hop, Rose Bent.

Black Stax makes creative, challenging and emotional music with an injection of hip hop and 70s-era soul, explains Jace ECAj.  "Our sound is the soul of a songbird full of parables and riddles.  We speak to the streets, classrooms, clubs and community."

Blak says, "It's more than hip hop, R&B or soul, it's more of a classic combination like Soul 2 Soul and Groove Theory or just dope ass vibe music."
