Something MAJOR is about to go down at The Knickerbocker.
Forget South Beach, Big Lux is stepping away from Miami and bringing his talents to Downtown Westerly to drop the Mic and his new EP, MAJOR. This is the first opportunity ever to pick up an EP featuring ORIGINAL songs written and performed by Big Lux, as well as official Big Lux merch.
For a party this big, we’re bringing along a few friends:
Brent Morgan (Special host and MC)
Greg Sherrod and the Black Sheep (Setting the stage, kicking off the night and blowing the roof off)
Sarah Thompson (Bringing the hottest R&B vocals you’ve never heard)
This will be the party of the year. Cancel your plans, tell your friends and do whatever you need to do to get there. It’s the culmination of a summer spent touring the East Coast, recording in Chicago, L.A. & Miami, and bringing something special back to the hometown.
Big Lux is the alter ego of Kevin Lowther II – a hip hop musician who will change the way you look at the instrument forever. Classically trained in in his hometown of Westerly, RI, he has jazz, country and hip-hop influences that allow him to blend styles and provide fresh new takes on music of every genre. He recently moved back to RI from Miami and is ready to rep the place he grew up and first studied music.
An army veteran, he has deployed and performed all over the world, coming to his own as a busker on the streets of Korea where he served for 4 years. There he founded and led the acclaimed band Bold Coast, which won the Seoul Expat’s 2015 battle of the bands and was selected to headline the St. Patty’s Day Festival. As a soloist, he toured in Korea and was featured on Armed Forces Network television and radio as well as the Korea Times. He has dragged his violin with him on tours to Germany, Iraq and most recently, Afghanistan.
As comfortable playing on stage as he is on the floor or on top of the bar, his performances are as unforgettable as his music. Constantly in motion, his shows are raw with a physicality that sets him apart from any other string player on earth. His versatility as a vocalist, beatboxer and multi-instrumentalist keep his shows fresh and audiences on their feet. He released his first cover album "Discovery" in 2017 and is looking forward to the released of his first original EP in October.
