Thunder Soul: Kashmere Stage Band Documentary
Last weekend, Felix, Unique Styles Crew member and drummer of FUSIK, came to Orlando to DJ at New Kids On the Rock which was hosted by MFKids at The Bboy Spot. He stayed a few extra days and in the this time introduced me to a sick documentary called THUNDER SOUL. We’ve all heard their songs, especially the one below, but I knew nothing about the band known as The Kashmere Stage Band. As the documentary went on it truly shocked me to learn that it was a group of high school kids playing the music! All these years of listening to the song thinking it was men in their 30′s – 40′s while in reality was created by teenagers from Kashmere High School located in Houston TX.
KASHMERE STAGE BAND- ‘KASHMERE’:
The band was led by an incredible man called Conrad “Prof” Johnson who didn’t just teach them about music, he educated them on life. I can tell you lots more, but honestly, watch the documentary! It’s on Netflix!

Note: If you are a bboy from the Houston area, you should definitely know the history.
