WE DID IT! WE MADE IT TO 2018!
2017 was a year for the books: we successfully launched our Kickstarter, recorded our first EP, wrote new music, traveled across the country, and made many new friends & fans.
None of it would be fully possible without you. Yes YOU! Thank you.
Big things on the horizon for 2018. We're syncing our hearts with our music--determined to continue and deepen our mission of blending differences and standing up for the dignity of life.
2018: EP OUT SOON. Like, REAL soon.
T'was the season for a rockin' evening!
Right at home in Fort Lauderdale, you helped us bring the house down! The holidays are a time to reflect on all we're thankful for and to spend quality time with loved ones... we consider all our fans family, and couldn't imagine spending our Saturday night any other way--THANK YOU FAM.
This particular evening started off with a monsoon, flooding and doubt if we would get a chance to rock...
But alas, we weathered the storm to debut at CWS with a packed house! THANK YOU all so much for coming out, ordering us some fries, and meeting us on the dance floor--rain or shine!
Honored to have our Fort Lauderaliens and Lake Worthians creepin' with us on Halloween weekend!
You brought it down with us Batman Villains at Stache and continued to get groovy with your fave Austin Powers folk at Sons & Daughters Farm &.
Halloween may have a spooky reputation, but your good vibes had us sounding sweet and we couldn't be more appreciative!
What an exceptional event honoring the life of Corey Jones: a local south florida drummer who left us too soon. This evening united families & friends, not only standing up applauding the bands, but standing up for justice around the nation.
WOW. Fort Lauderdale you showed us the love at For The Love!
South Florida is more than beaches, it's more than the bars, it's also a place filled with creatively untamed individuals willing to drip sweat into their passions--and that's just what we did alongside our local & talented friends.
Congratulations to every performer and supporter of this event!
We had the honor of playing in solidarity with over 300 other acts across 60 countries to benefit Amnesty International--a non-profit Human Rights organization. This particular evening surrounded Give A Home, raising awareness for the plight of refugees.
Our mission aligns with SoFar Sounds X Amnesty International, and we had a blast meeting new friends and playing alongside fellow ft lauderdale talent!
With some new material, we came ready... but didn't expect the audience to show up hype as ever! Every time we play in our hometown the Ft Lauderdaliens show up bigger and badder!
This show was extra special because our Keyboardist, Rich, is moving to Scotland (...I know, right?!). This was his last show with us, and as sad as we are, we couldn't think of a better send off than that evening. If you were a part of it, thank you from the bottom of our hearts. And thank you Rich for all the tremendous effort and energy you bring to our dynamic Black & Creme family, we'll miss ya bud!
Back on the farm and feelin' right at home! Honored that people traveled from near and far to chill with us in this summer heat!
Sons & Daughters dug their roots in Florida soil after hurricanes destroyed the land. They have since cultivated a mission that aligns with ours: creating a culture of community, love, and cooperation.
We'll be back soon ... stay tuned.
We on the national scene! Flew cross-country to California sharing our music with the locals and talented artists of VocalizeU!
We're all about unity and bridging our differences: this landmark show encapsulated our mission.
... & it's just the beginning.
What a victory! While smack dab in the middle of recording our first EP, we took a moment to play live... and Fort Lauderdale showed up proper! Thank you to all those who came to support, we saw you singing & dancing along!
A special thank you to our friends Sleepbox for opening up & setting the tone for the night
Our debut at Stache FTL was one of the largest turnouts yet! We're honored to play for our fellow Fort Lauderdaliens, sippin' on Stache's limited "Black & Creme" cocktail! Was a night for the books.
SYNERGY was without a doubt a team effort--truly a meaningfully memorable event. 4/29 will forever go down in history:
WE REACHED OUR KICKSTARTER GOAL!
Keep an ear out for our debut EP. Congratulations to everyone who performed on (and behind the) stage. Y'all are the true MVPs!

Jam packed with high-quality Florida acts, Sirens Yell X Respectable Street put on a evening full of live music with a tight communal atmosphere. We had the fortune of closing out the main stage for the evening, and even released some brand new music we've been cookin' up.
West Palm brought it hard, can't wait to rock with you all again.
Arts Garage is a diamond in the rough of Delray beach. We're no strangers to Delray; and Arts Garage welcomed us like family. One of our most unique shows, without a doubt we'll be back...
Performing two shows in 24 hrs isn't easy... but at least we were in good company! Many of you joined us on our Easter Weekend adventures and we couldn't have done it without you! We returned to two of our fav venues in Palm Beach: first at Bull Bar on Sat 4/15, then Sons & Daughters Farm on Sun 4/16. We wouldn't want to spend the holidays any other way.
Our debut at Funky Buddha was just that--FUNKY! We got down while the crowd got up cheering and dancing. Maybe it was all that fine local brew, maybe it was the tunes... Come see for yourself next time we're there because we'll definitely be back!
Nothing worth doing comes easy... RESPECTable Street was a celebration as Black & Creme shared the stage with our talented friends "Nick Aquilino & The Experience" and "Es Oh"!
Collective efforts create social movement.
West Palm Beach showed us how it's done! Between the caffeine and the lively crowd, Black & Creme + fans let Clematis know we're here to make a statement.
Organic music on an organic farm while sipping organic wine... non GMO music in a non GMO environment. Black & Creme X Sons & Daughters was a natural pairing.
Bull Bar feels like home after back-to-back weekends of performances! We have a feeling we'll be returning soon...

Hullabaloo turned 4 years old! "Hullabaloo" means great noise, excitement, or uproar. Oh, we made sure to bring a hullabaloo to Hullabaloo.

Closing out 2016, we returned to our home town to show some love and celebrate the New Year. Performing innovative cover tunes and of course our infamous originals, everyone was getting down while the ball dropped.

Lulu Laboratorium opened their doors and their arms to us as we rocked out in the art/fashion studio with our good friend, Lola Blu!
You KNOW we brought the funk to local music institution Respectable Street in West Palm Beach, FL, opening for South Florida veterans Killmama.
The audience was groovin' at C&I Studios' Art Walk; supporting the local artist scene by promoting small businesses and individual artistry of all mediums.
Pulling out all the stops for a full house at Gigi's Music Cafe in Sunrise, FL. Celebrating humanity, Thou Art Woman features influential poetry, spoken word, and music acts. Black & Creme proudly shared the stage with talented artists from the South Florida community.
