BandHip HopR&B

"The KOMANDOZ are a Dayton-based R&B/Hip Hop "collective" that appeal to many audiences." Their versatile style and clean lyrics create a universal attraction for the masses. With an energized stage show, their sound is a mixture of hip hop, jazz, reggae, funk and anything else they can flip.


Established in 1991, as a collective of world and urban rhythm makers, KOMANDOZ O.G.C. combines organic beats with schematic rhyme flow. Our music is raw, thought-provoking, and brings together all generations and races. Our travels led us to open for many talented acts including Mos Def, Biz markie, Latin Hip Hop Phenomenon Ozomatli, and Grand Master Flash and we also participated in the 2005 Scribble Jam in Cincinnati, Ohio. Our performance history includes the majority of local clubs and universities in the tri-state area, Club Safari holds special memories for us. We support our city in events like the Fly City Music Festival and the Black Cultural Festival. Dayton is our home and we plan to keep it on the map for universal music. Our music influences consist of Hip Hop, Reggae, Jazz, and Funk House music and spoken word. We believe in self-production and promotion to establish our sound in the world. Family-oriented and expanded (always) we speak for freedom of the mind and living peacefully with all beings.
