Magic City locals remember The Cornerstone as Miami’s most unique experimental art venue. After the club was shuttered in 2007, its spirit was kept alive through the Cornerstoners, a band that grew out of the hotspot’s fire-breathing creativity. A revival of live Funk and Hip Hop sounds, led by irrepressible MC, Michelangelo, the Cornerstoners have evolved into a force known for tearing up the Miami music scene and funkifying stages around the globe.
With acoustic Hip Hop origins, the Cornerstoners have grown into a danceable, high energy fusion of Progressive Rock, Blues, & Funk. Band personnel includes: Alana Dym laying down a strong Hip Hop drum foundation; Bassist Shawn Saul delivers a driving funky and harmonically astounding low end texture; Chris P provides a fast rock but gentle groove on the guitar; and MC Michelangelo spits a dose of provocative, socially conscious lyrics completing their style. Though creatively rooted as individuals, they come together for a larger movement staying true to their namesake’s birthplace, The Cornerstone.
