Short Description: 
Eastern Sunz LIVE - TONIGHT!

How would it sound if Duke Ellington, Jerry Garcia, Sam Cooke, Kool Herc & Shinehead gathered 'round a firepit and jammed?

Award-winning hip-hop/music duo, Eastern Sunz, are the result of the jam session between legendary lyricists and musicians. Their lyrics and sound are unique to them, infusing well-known themes with Pacific NW backdrops, but also reminiscent of classic beats and rhythms.

Officially on the scene in 2001 with the release of their first album, you can hear the past decade in the increasing sophistication of their sound and see that growth in the awards earned, especially in the past year!
