Van Buren Boys began in 2015, as the St. John's rap duo composed of emcees, g_sm00th and Reggie Morales. The pair spent a year writing, recording and performing tracks on their self-titled album. In 2016, the rappers were joined by a third vocalist, Steffi the Artist and a live band to help craft the unique sound that now defines the group. The ensemble made their performance debut at ChessClub's annual St. John's Christmas show. Since then, Van Buren Boys have played around the city and have been acclaimed for combining elements of contemporary hip hop and rock. The band delivers technical raps, melodic hooks and vibey instrumentals to create a dynamic and captivating performance.
