Thats Hip Hop Artist Addam White, aka Zig Zag Robinson. Adam started producing Film and Theater in his early 20s and went on to become a hip hop performing artist for the last decade. Zig Zag has performed in venues throughout California and has worked with dozens of local bands creating their own unique sound. Hip Hop is a combination of artistic forms that originated as a specific street subculture during the 1970s in New York City, later spreading its influence to communities throughout the country.
“bangbang” is the latest effort by Zig Zag producing a monthly First Friday Festival. Every First Friday for the next year Zig Zag is organizing multiple bands representing a wide range of musical styles along with visual artists chosen by the parachute collective (a local arts collective. ’bang bang’ brings together performers and visual artists under one roof at the well known local Restaurant, Bocci’s Cellar.
Although Los Angeles and Oakland are the west coast hip hop capitals, Santa Cruz has produced it’s share of National hip hop acts.
Under Zig Zag’s production company Wrench Broadcasting “bang bang” will add a musical component to the hugely successful monthly First Friday Art Tour. While bands rotate on stage, local artists and crafts people will display their work outside in the spacious bocce courtyard. ‘Bang bang’ is keeping the hip hop tradition alive in Santa Cruz.
