"A Must See Show!"

**REVIEW**
The Continental Duo - Comedic rock band known for cleverly designed lyrics ingeniously concealed within unique all original blend of Hip Hop / Pop-tunes. Their live shows have been rumored to leave audience members in a bizarre and almost hypnotic trance like state often craving more and more hard core Duo action. Each member taking different influences and styles and bringing them to the table to create their very own sound - truly a fresh break from the ordinary...
Their style and very characteristic look surprises the audience with an explosion of energy from the moment they walk on stage to their final song. A must see show! An energetic and electrifying performance.
Hurry up and catch this fresh Duo on the local circuit-because America is ready for TCD!

Bio

In a hip hop world where the crown has already been given out to Biggie and TuPac, the old school credentials already handed down, the progressive artists named, the experimental and abstract awards been given, and the dance club one hit wonders all shining....that's it. That's hip hop and rap. All wrapped up. Ready to be put on the highest shelf at the Smithsonian in downtown D.C.

Enter, The Continental Duo. Two masked MCs who dare to brush the dust off the Pandora's box of hip hop, open it up, and find their rightful place. Tricky Dick Nixon and Dolla Dolla Bill defy convention as they mask their egos and demand that the listener see the message, not the messenager. Not to be misconstrued as "preachy", these two party rockers still come to rock a party. Originally from the bass-driven streets of Miami, The Duo knows how to get dangerous. Turning their backs on Armani suits and Scarface, the Mickey Mouse of South Beach, The Duo arrived on the real streets of Chicago. Mixing in the fresh, organic, and unusually original beats of Dolla Dolla Bill with the raw, dirty, and unusually insightful lyrical flow of Tricky Dick Nixon, The Continental Duo splashes their new flavor against the classic backdrop of Chicago, incorporating the city's rich soul, blues, gospel, and jazz sound.

With the cultivation of TCD's sound comes a new element of music. These rhyme-sayers are ready to deliver a sound and energy that is worthy of hip hop. With a six track demo, Continental the Monumental EP, under their belt, The Continental Duo is back in the studio recording their sophomore classic, Continental Breakfast. Book this group now while they're still on the underground circuit.
