LA Symphony Tours Europe

Gotee recording act LA Symphony will be touring Europe for a month-long, 14 show run including a performance at the Flevo Festival, one of the largest Christian music fests in Europe attracting crowds well over 10,000 people. The band’s oversea tour will take them to Finland, Sweden, Denmark, The Netherlands, England, Ireland, and Switzerland during the month of August.
LA Symphony, a hip hop collective from Los Angeles featuring five MCs/producers and one DJ , is comprised of Flynn, Cookbook, Sharlock Poems, and UNO Mas, and Joey the Jerk. Their most recent release, The End Is Now (Basement Records/Red) was released through Gotee Records last November 18th. The group was formed in 1997 during a time when West Coast hip-hop was identified with gangster rap, and despite that image found a following in the underground hip-hop scene with a classically-influenced, organic hip-hop style that was uniquely theirs. In 1999 the band released their first album, Composition #1, independently. The band went on to sign a record deal with the now-defunct Squint Entertainment , but unfortunately the critically-acclaimed Call It What You Want was never released.
Career highlights for LA Symphony include opening for major acts such as Jurassic 5 and Black Eyed Peas. The band also has played major events including the NBA/Yahoo Rhythm and Rims Tour, the Van’s Warped Tour (Los Angeles show), and The Night Hip-Hop Stole Christmas. They’ve seen radio success with a #1 hit single on HITS Magazine hip hop airplay chart with “Broken Tape Decks” from the never-released Call It What You Want album. LA Symphony also managed to enter the Top 5 of six leading hip hop airplay charts in 2001, including CMJ, Urban Network, Rimsaconn, and Insomniac.
