The best kept secret in music

Press


"OK Press 1"

"The smartest hip-hop band in the land... heady grooves, smart samples, funkery, & melodic pop partying let their songs function equally as mosh-pit anthems and intense sophisticated gut-punches." Jan. 10, 2005

"OK Press 5"

“The band incorporates doses of booty-moving funk, chilled-out reggae and smoothed-out jazz to the mix, laying down the perfect accompaniment for Woodz to rhyme over. Woodz' raps are smooth and spot on, displaying skill and pizzazz behind the mic. Like all good MCs, he never misses a beat and easily gets the crowd up and partying.”

"OK Press 3"

"Live, Ordinary K are truly one of the best bands I have seen. Woodz controls the stage inciting the crowd into a dance riot...solid command of set lists...dance floors are typically packed."
- - Matt Hall - Soundboard mag.


"OK Press 4"

“The best music to come out of Boulder in years.”

- - Rob Thomas - Mgr. Fox Theatre


"OK Press 2"

"To say these gentlemen have star credibility would be an understatement...All in all this EP is strong stuff that is not only very accessible but a clear indication that this band is meant for great things" - November 10th 2004
Standout Tracks: ‘Naked’ & ‘Hello’.
- Liam Thomson - State of Emergency Magazine

Bio

Ordinary K is paving the path to a brighter day for music lovers everywhere. With a healthy nod to the forefathers of funk, these musical alchemists combine hip-hop with rock ‘n’ roll to invoke the rhythmic precision of James Brown, the inherent soul of Stevie Wonder, and the raw intensity of the Beastie Boys.

Formed in '99 Ordinary K rose out of the definitely non hip-hop/rock scene of Boulder, CO. They cut squarely against the grain, consistently selling out the Fox Theatre while building a huge following in Colorado and beyond. In Fall 2003 with a Budweiser "True Music Live" sponsorship in their back pocket, Ordinary K left the friendly confines of Boulder and made a break for their East Coast roots with a move to NYC.

In their Brooklyn base Ordinary K has already built up an impressive following. They were a part of the Van's 2005 Warped Tour and continue to pack rooms in both NYC and Boston, like the Knitting Factory and the Middle East. Throughout their travels OK has performed with Jimmy Cliff, Rahzel (of the Roots), Blackalicious, Doug E. Fresh, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe, Galactic, Ozomatli and Soulive, while enjoying guest performances from DJ Logic and Carlos Washington Jr.

Ordinary K's tracks have been selected for compilation discs and appear in Warren Miller's ski epic "The Storm," and Pedro Carjaval's feature documentary "POPaganda: The Art & Crimes of Ron English." With the release of "The Naked EP", their 2005 Budweiser endorsement, radio spots, and extensive touring the OK Crew is expanding it's presence internationally.
