Months after Kadesh Flow and the Marcus Lewis band took the Granada stage for Brass and Boujee, we’ve just barely caught our breaths and the musicians have floored us once again.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, then you’ve heard the big news that Janelle Monáe is coming to the Starlight in Kansas City this Fall for the Open Spaces festival (view the full impressive lineup below). One of the opening acts is none other than Kadesh Flow and the Marcus Lewis band. It’s easy to grow fond of Kadesh Flow because he is an absolute force onstage, effortlessly interchanging his jazz trombone solos with his rapping. But he’s also adored for making sure there’s a place in “nerd spaces” for people of color, as he pointed out in an interview with us earlier this year.

This week, they released a video to promote their song “All Day.” Music videos are always a good idea for any musical group, but in this case it gives you a visual representation of the massive presence this band brings to the stage. They will surely use every square inch of that stage at the Starlight. We can’t wait.

You can watch the video below, and be sure to catch them this October at the Starlight.
