"The music of Boogie Chillun refers to the entire history of popular music... choral, folk, rock and blues, but especially R&B, soul and Hip Hop. Boogie Chillun draws natural connections to all of these genres, and adds their own 'Funky Haven' style and humor to the mix. Not only does Boogie Chillun make you feel the awesome power of music, the band uses its lyrics to spread positive messages, decry racial hatred, and mock the steeotyping or unfair mistrust that can keep communities from forming and growing.... I don't know of another band that can have crowds screaming and dancing no matter where they play. Their shows are refreshing, surprising, disarming, spreading joy and harmony... Boogie Chillun has that versatility and community spirit."
