Dedicated Servers is a hip-hop group that seems dedicated to bringing back the fun of hip-hop past. MCs Dave Boutdy and Matt Dixon come to the stage determined to get the crowd moving; their energy explodes as they bust out precisely timed, clever and often hilarious lines. They're good-natured and passionate about the rhymes they spit, which becomes infectious for the crowd. Even if it's your first time seeing the group, you'll inevitably end up singing along.
Owen Heavy, AKA "the resident genius," drops beats that get your head bobbing in your seat, and Dave's magnetic and vivacious dance moves will pull you out to the floor before you know what's happening. All the guys in the group are Boise natives, and their positive vibes abound whether there are two or 20 people in the crowd.
You can check them out at the Red Room this Halloween, Monday, Oct. 31, or below in the latest episode of Scenes From a Scene, BW's continuing video series on local music happenings.
