Aviator Gang

The Aviator Gang (formerly Trump & Associates) is a three man crew of M.C.'s from the Southside of Columbus Ohio. The members of the group are B. HAZ, MIC SMIFF and ST. NIKOLAS. The childhood friends have been doing music together since the early 90's. They were forced to take a break from creating music due to life lessons.
 
Growing mentally, spiritually, and musically from boys to men- they have returned to bring gritty underground hip hop back to the masses. Even though they were not doing music, they still remained best friends through their individual journeys. 

When the opportunity presented itself to get back into the studio with a renewed work ethic, refreshed musical insight, and new production by B. HAZ- the three man team remained poised to make an impact in the over saturated hip hop industry.
 
Be prepared for raw abstract beats, and intelligent lyrical rhymes with a sharp edge. The AVIATOR GANG would like to welcome you to to the DIRTY O!!!!
THE HEART OF IT ALL and THE BIRTH PLACE OF AVIATION!!!!!!!

Carl Sally- Saxophonist Extrodinaire and Music Hall of Fame Artist

Carl Sally born in Columbus, Ohio in 1936 was raised on the Westside by his grandmother, Virginia Ingram in a part of Columbus known as the Bottoms. Today it is known as the historical birthplace of the city of Columbus and is called Franklinton. Even though his father was not in the home he was a caring and devoted man. Carl attended Franklinton Elementary School where he started playing music in the fourth grade at the tender age of 10 years old.

At the age of 12, Carl, won six awards in music and was on his way to a bright future as a musician. Carl, at this time, was introduced to the famous, Lionel Hampton, by former Columbus mayor and governor, James A. Rhodes. All this occurred while he attended Starling Junior High School. Carl won a first place trophy in the All Boys Club Talent Contest. It was presented to him by the comedian and actor, Bob Hope. This had a profound effect on him and caused him to create his first band in high school were they performed for his graduating class.
Carl started his first professional band know as The Carl Sally Combo in 1956 with a close friend who was also from Columbus, Don Patterson. The band went on to play many venues and engagements around Columbus. Carl seemed to have patterned himself after another talented Columbus saxophonist, Rusty Bryant. He always had band members around him who worked hard to create a great sound. It has been said that it was hard not to get up and dance when Carl Sally’s band played.
 
From his retirement in 1988 to the present, Carl has worked special engagements to keep him in touch with the world of entertainment. However, in 2009 the entertainment bug struck him once more and has brought him back stronger than ever because he still has great passion for the music he loves. Carl Sally has been inducted and is a member of the Ohio Music Hall of Fame and the Jazz Hall of Fame (2002).

Carl Sally is available now for club and private party engagements.
