Already considered to be party legends, The 17th Floor has astounded audiences around the world with their remarkable blend of live hip-hop and R&B music, accented by solid musicianship, insuppressible energy, tight choreography, and a strong commitment to entertaining their audience.
The storyline of The 17th Floor begins when Greg Thompson (Drums) created the nucleus of The 17TH Floor including his brother Aaron (Bass Guitar). After extensive and exhausting audition periods, the rest of the band was comprised of unique and talented artists.
It wasn’t long before they were touring college campuses all over the mid-west and southern United States becoming a favorite of every campus they invaded.
Their big break came when the female hip-hop group TLC happened to stumble upon one of their rehearsals in Atlanta. Needing a band for their upcoming tour, TLC hired them on the spot and within a few short months, The 17th Floor went from performing at fraternity houses to 40,000-seat arenas.
During that time, The 17th Floor shared the stage with such acts as TLC, Boyz II Men, Jodeci, and M.C. Hammer.
After the completion of the TLC world tour, The 17th Floor jumped back into the smaller-venues better than ever! They continued touring college campuses even adding a tour of Japan and Taiwan.
The 17th Floor then returned to the United States hoping to embark on yet another national tour. They didn’t have to wait long. A young, up-and-coming R&B artist named Usher contacted The 17th Floor. He was very impressed with their work and wanted the band to assist with preparing for his upcoming tour. The band happily obliged by rehearsing with Usher for his “My Way” tour and appearing with him on the FOX Networks Keenan Ivory Wayans Show.
On their own The 17th Floor is energized performing for audiences often found on college campuses and in popular dance clubs. Delivering a combination of Top 10 cover tunes and impressive originals in over 200 plus live performances dates a year.
They’re Here!!!!!!!! It’s Time!!!!!!! Get ready for The 17th Floor Experience!
