Biography

Kontraband Muzik is a five-piece band that seamlessly blends hip-hop, rock, and funk at full speed in a style coined “Mash-Up” Music. We’ve been referred to as “a musical tsunami” by NUVO Music Magazine, described as a “Sonic mixed drink” through the eyes of Intake Weekly, and bring a flavor that continues to attract a diverse following by easily meshing with any style of music or artist.

Lead singer of the renowned group “The Franchize”, Nate Davis released his solo album and began touring with Mark Steele/DJ Unorthodox (also of The Franchize), drummer Leon "Quiksticks" Kittrell, singer/songwriter and guitarist Davey Heritier, and later added bass phenom Jeremy "The Professor" Taylor, creating “KontraBand Muzik”. The new line-up's career highlights include sharing a stage with such artists as Usher, Mary Mary, Bo Diddly, Jonathon Butler, Bone Thugs ‘N’ Harmony, Stone Temple Pilots, and most recently, Ludacris, at the world famous Playboy Mansion, hosted by Kendra, Holly, and Bridgette from “E” Entertainment Channel’s, “The Girls Next Door”.

Rocking the streets from Indianapolis, IN to Atlanta, GA, the group has already gained the reputation as one the hottest independent bands in the Midwest and is now taking the Southeast music scene by storm. After moving to Atlanta in 2010, the group played to a standing ovation at the world famous Apache Café, were invited as featured performers at Patchwerk’s “I Do Music” Showcase, Georgia State’s “The Leak” Music Festival, and were asked to appear with several Grammy award-winning musicians at The Tabernacle to play alongside Cee-lo of Gnarls Barkley and Goodie Mobb fame. The group has also made a solid footprint in the historic Athens, GA music scene by rocking out popular campus music venues including the Fabulous 40 Watt, Tasty World, New Earth Music Hall, Last Call, Bad Manor, and Sideways. KontraBand Muzik’s mash-up music style, matched with a polished sound and unrivaled showmanship, makes every show unforgettable!

“These guys should be playing at Phillips Arena. They are ready.”
--Michael Freeman, owner of Kat’s Café (Atlanta, GA)
