Biography

The Outfit is a group of four men that couldn’t be any moreDifferent if they tried. All four members of the band are from the suburban melting pot otherwise know as Seattle WA. The band was formed in 2001 and after taking in a few line-up changes. This hard hitting four piece has set fire, stage after stage, including blowing up the second stage at the Kiss/Aerosmith, 2003 concert and have got down with Sir Mix a Lot in 2005 for a New Years Eve bash. With their first official release "Be Explicit" this band’s self-expression pours out as a mix of rock, funk and hip hop. The songs on the album are filled with powerful lyrics from vocalist Michael Dubois, whom is a self coached singer/rapper/lyricist who delivers a pulse pounding stage performance. Mike(singer/lyricist) is from Seattle Wa., whom had found a love for poetry and singing in a Pentecostal church. Mike has a natural ability to amp up any crowd and has amazing stage presence. When listening to The Outfit one won't hear a drawn out, screechy guitar solo, only a smooth, clean sound, laid down by know one other than, guitarist Casey Shirks. Casey is a Tacoma native who has been jamming on the guitar since the he was in the third grade. He has an ear for perfection and an everlasting desire to bring a new sound to the table. Casey has an extreme amount of talent that is portrayed every time he is entertaining a crowd. In a town filled with left over grunge bands, metal bands and Indie rock The Outfit is one of a kind. So far we have a rapper/singer and a guitarist who doesn't solo what's next you ask? Well how about a funky bassist from Kent Washington, yes I said Kent. Dan Hatfield found a passion for playing music influenced by a little of everything including Rage, Flea , 2PAC, The Beastie Boys and many others. Mike Brown is the latest addition to The Outfit.....
