Dave Chappelle's opening act The Supa Lowery Bros jazz fusion group is receiving rave reviews during the Radio City Music Hall tour. Fans of the iconic comedian have been pleasantly surprised by the incredible "show before the show" delivered by The Supa Lowery Bros. hailing from Los Angeles by way of their hometown Philadelphia.

Dave is a comic genius. Opening for him at Radio City and performing our unique style of jazz music which includes a blend of blues, hip-hop, funk and R&B is a great honor.

As part of Dave Chappelle’s highly anticipated performances at Radio City Music Hall, Los Angeles based jazz fusion group Supa Lowery Bros. are performing live for all ten shows between June 18th-June 22nd and June 24th-June 27th. The duo, consisting of twin brothers Christopher and Wesley Lowery, have not only joined a comedic legend at Radio City Music Hall but a legion of groundbreaking hip-hop and soul artists like DJ Premier, Janelle Monae, Busta Rhymes, The Roots, Erykah Badu and Nas. "Dave is a comic genius. Opening for him at Radio City and performing our unique style of jazz music which includes a blend of blues, hip-hop, funk and R&B is a great honor," said Chris Lowery. After a successful October stint as Chappelle’s opening act in Long Beach (California), the comedian personally invited the Supa Lowery Bros to headline the pre-show for his first announced shows in New York City in over a decade. Accompanied by pianist Ron Avant, the Supa Lowery Bros. are charming Dave Chappelle's fans nightly.

Christopher Lowery and drummer Wesley Lowery started Supa Lowery Bros in New York City in 2000, steadily developing their signature sound which they describe as a musical gumbo of African-American musical genres. "We play our live instruments and create samples of our performances which makes our music appealing to pure jazz fans as well as to the young hip-hop generation. It's universal," said Wesley Lowery.

The twin brothers come from a long and rich musical legacy. Their father, jazz percussionist Thomas Lowery, inspired them to learn from the great jazz legends of Philadelphia through enrolling them in cultural centers and essentially providing them with an alternative to the surrounding blight and danger of their hometown streets. Chris Lowery studied trumpet under the Grammy nominated Donald Byrd and can play trumpet and piano simultaneously. Their father raised them as a single parent after their mother succumbed to cancer when they were two years old. Today, the brothers call Los Angeles home, performing as the resident band at Shutters On The Beach.

When they’re not touring or rigorously performing, the brothers are working on their highly anticipated fourth studio album. "We explore world music influences on one of the tracks with a song named after our dad (Tho-mas) which boasts a heavy Brazilian-samba feel to it," described Wesley Lowery. The album will be released this summer on iTunes.
