Band Bio

The Mighty Third Rail is an award winning New York based trio that mixes the elements of Hip Hop poetry, beat-boxing, violin and upright bass. From poetry cafes to colleges to concert halls, whether it's jamming at the legendary Nuyorican Poets Cafe, opening for Reggie Watts, or performing at the prestigious Lincoln Center , The Mighty Third Rail undoubtedly delivers. Featuring the dashing Darian Dauchan on vocals, the indelible Ian Baggette on bass, and the courteous Curtis Stewart on violin. Daring vocals, booming bass lines and a vivacious violin create a show charged with high energy, crowd interaction and wise cracking wordplay. This bold, urban collective pushes the boundaries of Jazz and Hip Hop to define the next generation's voice. They are the winners of the 2012 Musical Theatre Matters award for BEST New Music at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland, are 2015 American Music Abroad Finalists for the U.S. State Department, and in February 2014 performed at SPKRBOX, the first Hip Hop Theater Festival in Norway.
