SAN ANTONIO - We showcase many different kinds of music on the Garage, mostly rock. But this week we have a group of talented young men that make hip-hop, funk, rap, and jazz music. Cadillac Muzik to be exact. That’s the group's name and they dropped by the studios and performed two songs for us, Floater and Rhythm Ain’t Dead. Click here to watch...
Cadillac Muzik is not like any hip-hop group, they have a saxophone player and a bass and guitar player that perform with them. Sadly the bass and guitar players couldn’t make it today. But Lil’ Scott and Moses, the vocalists and Memph the saxophonist/DJ showed up and they brought some good ol’ funkadelic with them.
That’s the kind of music the group gets their inspiration from. Outkast, Parliament Funkadelic, Black Eyed Peas, Field Mob, and Curtis Mayfield are some of the various artists that help the group with their musical journey.
Officially the band formed six months ago, but they loosely started in 2007. Based out of San Antonio, these young guys are actually all cousins. They didn’t know they were related until high school when Lil’ Scott and Moses where at Roosevelt. Memph is all the way from Memphis, Tennessee and joined later on. The two vocalists started out doing poems at a young age and that helped out in the future with coming up with words for songs.
The group has a saying that can be found on their website and CD that says, God 1st, Family 2nd, and Money 3rd. They said all those things are very important to them, especially since some of them are fathers and are trying to balance family and music.
Cadillac Muzik have been very busy and even recorded a music video for their song Floating. It was shot in February and will be posted on Facebook, YouTube, and the group’s website.
On April 14th they have a show in Austin at Victory Grill. And in a few months Cadillac Muzik will be on a fifteen city tour.
Catch them on all of their websites:
