Featuring dual MCs as well as a full band, Flobots are an alternative hip-hop group from Denver, Colorado with a political conscience, musical chops, and a powerful live show. Influenced by progressive rappers such as the Roots and Common, as well as alternative hard rock bands such as Rage Against the Machine and Tool, Flobots was founded in 2005. Today’s core group is comprised of Emcees Jonny 5 (born Jamie Laurie) and Brer Rabbit (born Stephen Brackett) along with musicians Andy Rok Guerrero (guitar) and Kenny O (drums). The band’s current roster of live touring musicians also includes members of Spirit of Grace (sisters Larea Edwards & Chrissy Grant), Sarah Hubbard (violin/viola), and Sean Blanchard (Bass).

We are all pretty big comic book and sci fi/Fantasy nerds! Between Brer Rabbit, Jonny 5, Andy Rok, and Kenny O we probably have collectively over 5,000 comics and trade paper backs!
