After releasing a full length C.D. and going out on the road opening for national act BOOMBOX (a very successful electronic band from the shoals) touring in Ohio, Colorado, Mississippi, Alabama and playing over 220 shows in various states. After staying on the road and trying to hold down their day jobs, some of the members naturally grew tired and just needed a break. During that time Nate grew bored of not doing music and began to pick up side gigs as a DJ for Fraternities, Proms, Sororities, Banquets, Cooperate Events, and Weddings. Also Nate took a job managing and being house D.J. at Faces Bar and Lounge, hosting and working sound for such acts as as Juvenile, J.Dash, and Mystikal. During that time Nate began to write songs again and came up with the moniker "WAKETHECITUP" in light of all the people who were "a sleep" to his capabilities as well as the lot of other modern, liberal, and urban forms of music and art that are not being displayed in the Shoals Area. Successfully becoming one of the Shoals area's Top D.J.'s in just a couple of years, Nate is hitting the studio again to record a demo (Good x's, Every Time) (Good Times Every Time), of some of the songs written to the soundtrack provided by music from his brother from another mother, and Co Founder of Grown Folks Band, Kinsman MacKay. Nate is an entrepreneur who has a Bachelor's Degree in Entertainment Industry Management and loves life and music. He hopes to become a house hold name as a DJ/Artist/Performer and to one day to own his on successful Music Venue or Venue's.
