ABOUT THE BAND

Here you'll be able to learn a little bit more about the members of the band, where they come from and what makes them tick.


spade_one_portrait Born and raised in Milwaukee Wisconsin, Tahrim T.'s love of hip-hop first bloomed in 1987 and led to performing in 1989. His style mixes elements of Reggae and Dancehall, both of which influence him musically and culturally. He has played open mics, house parties and music festivals across the Midwest. Over the years he has opened for A Tribe Called Quest, Jungle Brothers, De La Soul, Slick Rick, Cappadonna, Natty Nation, Mike Jones and many others. He has two CD releases to his name; 2000's Spade One and 2012's Spade One Manifesto, with more in the works. As a member of One Sound Border, The Boombox Saints, and the Brew City Bandits he is a booker, promoter, emcee and security specialist without equal.
Keith G. grew up with hip-hop on MTV and polka on WTKM. He considers High Art and Love Poems, his first published chapbook of poetry to also be his first solo album. In 2006 he began publishing Burdock magazine and booking the Burdock Presents series. That same year he also started playing music and writing lyrics. He has played harmonica and sung in multiple groups including Tha Fundamentals (2009), The O'blivion Family Band and Plane To Lisbon (2010). The November Criminals first worked together in 2011 after the newly anointed Brumeister occasionally stepped out from behind the bar to freestyle at Spade 1's Borderclash. He currently hosts the Burdock Radio Hour on Riverwest Radio. brumeister_portrait
ntsc_portrait Evan M. has loved free reed instruments and the music they make since he was a boy. He got his first harmonica from his grandfather when he was 7, graduating to the melodeon when he was 16. He's been playing Zydeco, Polka, Ceilidh and Cajun music for going on 15 years. Besides melodeon his passions include animation, illustration, game and website development, interactive design, audio engineering and medieval fighting. He considers himself a student of anarcho-syndicalism and humanism. His love of hip-hop started with Busta Rhymes and extends through the spectrum of under-ground to mainstream with an emphasis on word play and lyricism. He is the multimedia director for Bytestudios LLC.
