NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, USA, December 27, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Stix Bones and The BONE Squad, featuring percussionist and Olympic Gold Medalist Bob Beamon, are excited to be performing great jazz live, on Friday, January 12, 2024, at The Cutting Room NYC in support of their new “Olimpik Soul” Official Album Release Party.
Today, fifty-five (55) years after Bob Beamon’s iconic, Gold Medal long jump at the 1968 Mexico City Olympics he has returned to his original life passion, which is his love for music. In the mid-1950s, in South Jamaica, Queens (NY) the sounds of improvised Latin/Afro percussion caught his attention. He was nine (9) years old and a newfound passion for music saved his life from the tough streets of South Jamaica.
Local musicians influenced and inspired Bob. He started playing percussion in local schools and churches, building his life around music before discovering his athletic potential. As a teen, Bob chose to commit to sports which took time away from his beloved music activities.
“Whether describing music or describing athletics it’s all about rhythm”, said Bob Beamon 1968 USA Olympic HOF’er and Gold Medalist. “If you concentrate on timing, movement, and visualization, mix it up, you can come up with some incredible results.”
Stix and The BONE Squad recently released two (2) singles “LEAP” and “BE THANKFUL” from the Olimpik Soul album featuring the beautiful vocals of Khadejia who is known for singing on recordings with Jay-Z, Salt N Pep, Mary J. Blige, Shaggy, and Wyclef of the Fugees and legendary poet Abiodun Oyewole of The Last Poets, who worked with Stix early in his career. Both singles are currently available on all music digital platforms and have been given rave reviews. It is a preview of the exciting music to come from this amazing band.
“Early this year I was introduced to Bob Beamon by his cousin Al Brisbane who is our BONE Squad bassist,” said Stix Bones – Founder of BONE Squad. “Bob and I hit it off right away. I’ve been in awe of his commitment, passion, and of course, his incredible musical talent.”
The “Olimpik Soul” Album Release Party will take place Friday, January 12, 2024, in NYC, at The Cutting Room venue. The BONE Squad appreciates the support from current event sponsors including Brooklyn Wine Co, The Buoniconti Fund, and World Business Lenders, to date.
