I play in several bands and have been writing music since I was a little kid. Everything that I posted on this site is 100% original, written and recorded by me on my lonesome.
This page is home to both High Klass (solo recording artist), and the band Hood Klass Perri.
About Hood Klass Perri:
First things first: you'll never find out what is really going on until you experience it LIVE.
As of now, Hood Klass Perri plays in Hamilton, Ontario on Sunday nights at Touche in Hess village (formerly 33 Hess). The band is all about their live shows, and their shows are all about the moment - you'll never hear the same set twice. These talented musical oddities combine their honed instrumental prowess and respective influences to create an airtight original sound that presses the boundaries of reggae, funk, rock, hip hop, jazz, soul and beyond. HKP draws from an ever expanding repertoire of original songs and covers, but also focuses on ephemeral improvised creations which delve deep into a groovier universe altogether. Things really came to be in November '08, but Hood, Klass, and Perri have been jamming out in various basements since they met as freshmen at McMaster in '05.
Anyways, come on down to Hess village to catch an unforgettable event every time, and stay tuned for upcoming tour dates.
About High Klass:
Creator, producer, performer, cheesy self bio writer, High Klass does it all. This year marks the beginning of some next level shit for Sam and the dudes who he makes music with. Come catch him live in Hamilton in '09, before he takes off on some ill defined adventures across North America and beyond.
Everything on this page is the work of High Klass and company. Nothing has been officially released on an album yet, but this page is just the tip of the iceberg in terms of Sam's growing body of work - he has written and self produced dozens (literally) of unreleased songs.
Klass works alone and collaboratively. He has played in several historical ghost bands across Canada (Mamas Soup, Goodspell, West Hawk, Skpom, Confederacy of Funk, Techno Champions, to name a few).
Even though he was born in Winnipeg and grew up in the suburbs of Philadelphia, Klass's live solo shows are known across southern Ontario for their tight instrumental jams, danceable loop-based grooves, parades of eye-poppingly talented special guests, and jumpin cover songs. His vibes always leave audiences with ridiculous, slightly confused smiles plastered on their faces - sometimes for days. Beware.
