Live Music Projects

Cee Knowledge and the Cosmic Funk Orchestra

Cee Knowledge & The Cosmic Funk Orchestra is a Philly-based funk and hip-hop group lead by its namesake, Cee Know the 'Doodlebug' of the Grammy award winning jazz-influenced rap group Digable Planets. This collective of seasoned veteran musicians has come together to bring their head nodding rock energy to their legendary frontman's jazzy rap flow for audiences around the world since the band's creation in 2000.

Their new album, "To Life, Love, Loot" is set to officially release in the Summer of 2014. This eclectic album of brand new recordings, which they spent over 4 years crafting together, was self-produced by Cee and his band members using traditional live band recording studio techniques; rather than the drum machines and sampled loops that are the mainstays of most mainstream rap music production today.
