Dynamic, a San Francisco Bay Area group, represents the newest breed of young musical titans who fuse genres, molding hybrid sounds into the new millennium timescape. Dynamic started at Cal State Hayward as a progressive Jazz group of some repute, but that was just the beginning. Dynamic merged briefly with the East Bay Hip Hop crew, Urban Icon, to form Urban Dynamic, emerging with a Hip Hop flavor which enhanced their Jazz and pop sensibilities. This mighty incarnated quartet entertains with finely crafted songs and a high octane energized performance that leaves the crowd hungry for more.
