Okinawa's Band of Brothers attracts attention

Date Posted: 2010-04-01

Hollywood Jack and The Committee are aiming to take Okinawa by storm. Affectionately referred to as the Band of Brothers, the local hip hop and rap group is preparing for a Saturday evening takeover of the Banyan Tree Club on Kadena Air Base.

The Committee is Jack Jones, who calls himself Hollywood Jack, Jesse Graves, known as The Duke, and L.J. Jones, who goes by the moniker Big Deal. The three are all active duty U.S. Air Force airmen, and they’ve forged a friendship based upon love of music. The trio describes their music as reminiscent of late 90’s era hip hop, and brings to mind the sounds of Jay-z and Rocafella Records, which dominated the music industry scene a few years ago.

Graves, a North Carolina native, not only raps but serves as the group’s rhythm and blues hook man. L.J. “Big Deal” Jones, who hails from Mississippi, is the Band of Brothers’ deep south representative, while Hollywood Jack, a Virginia native, serves as the group’s front man and spokesman. The talk this week is about the upcoming release of Hollywood Jack’s debut mix tape Survivor Series: Volume 1, an effort featuring all three members of the group.

“We all share similar backgrounds and ideas about life,” says Hollywood Jack. “The music brought us together as one undeniable force.” The group will perform live on the Banyan Tree stage Saturday evening. “We all come from different areas, but the military brought us together,” Hollywood Jack points out, “and through hip hop music we have formed an unbreakable bond and a lifetime friendship.”
