Andy Sparacino (Tron) and Robey Stothart (Sabo Forte) formed BLIST in the summer of 2007. Blist started as a rap duo influenced by old skool hip hop acts like the Beastie Boys who now use live instrumentation to perform rap music. The musicality of Blist is deep-rooted in 70s funk and 80s alternative music with influences ranging from Zapp & Roger to The Pixies. Blist performs with a full band feat. Marvin Kee “the fly” (bass) and Willy Garcia (drums) Blist is a band and not just a ‘rap act’. Their live shows are high energy and always unique.
