The Chewstick Band
We are the house band for Chewstick, The Neo-Griot Lounge, which takes place in Bermuda. we are a small collective of musicians who are interested in expressing ourselves through music, poetry, and rap.
Chewstick began in December of 2002, when a group of artists based in Bermuda came together out of a life long friendship and history of collaboration, to put on an event to share artistic talents. This event was the beginning of the Neo-Griot Movement and what has become an intensely creative, spiritual, and uplifting collective focused on the exploration and refinement of human expression in every facet.
Since Chewstick's inception it has staged regular open-mic jam sessions at it's Neo-Griot Lounge developing a large family of artists and socially conscious souls.
We are influenced by a large range of music: Hip hop, rock, funk, acoustic soul, reggae, etc.
