SoundsGood's 2002 debut wowed listeners with nimble hot-steppers, beat-heavy tongue twisters and jazz-flavored space jams. KC mic-slayer Joe Good and Lawrence producer extraordinaire Miles Bonny showcased an adroit yin-yang chemistry -- Good's brow-furrowed complexities were offset by Bonny's wry way with a beat. In the ensuing months, SoundsGood has proven to be one of the few area rap outfits that must be seen live. The duo puts on a show in the good-time party tradition of OutKast (the pair has been known to sport equally dubious stagewear) and also recall vintage Public Enemy, with Bonny leaping from behind the boards and becoming Flavor Flav to Good's Chuck D. Unafraid to play anywhere and everywhere, the group has performed at dorm parties, frat bars, benefits and house parties as well as regular stints at the Bottleneck and the Pool Room. Fortunately, SoundsGood is also smart enough to alter its routines from show to show, so regular fans rarely see the same thing twice.
