Nnamdi Ogbonnaya Shows Patience at Pitchfork

Nnamdi Ogbonnaya Shows Patience at Pitchfork

Pitchfork Music Festival - Sunday - Green Stage 1:00pm

When Ms. Lauryn Hill requests a closed sound check, and needs more then her alotted time, you allow her to have it without question. She is Lauryn Hill after at all. Even if you are a label owner and one of most promising new artists in Chicago.

By the time Nnamdi and his full band, which included Sen Morimoto on Sax, were allowed to take the stage they were already 15 minutes past their start time. They quickly ran through sound check and launched into “Hop Off” from Nnamdi’s latest album, Drool, at a full 25 minutes into their set time.

Despite having to cut their set short the band and Nnamdi performed with energy and excitement. The set ranged from straight hip hop to funk to soul to an all out rock onslaught. After thirty-five minutes the band graciously left the stage and left the modest sized crowd wanting more.
