Room 2: Old School Funk and Disco
Forrest Getemgump became his B-boy and DJ name after Crazy Legs from the Rock Steady Crew started joking calling him Forrest Getemgump after the movie Forrest Gump hit the theaters. While there was only a small number of B-boys active in the New York City scene in the early 90s, anytime he was at a party and another b-boy hit the floor his friends would say “Get em’ Gump” in order to provoke competition. Being a B-boy most of his life and growning up in the Central New York B-boy scene, Forrest Getemgump always had a love for the turntables as well. He has headlined at some of the worlds largest B-boy Events such as Battle of the Year 2007 (Germany), Houston Hoedown (Houston, TX), B-Boy Summit (Los Angeles), Kings 10 Year Anniversary (Melbourne, Australia), and the Breakin Convention Tour (UK/Wales/Scotland) to name a few.
Getemgump also manned the counter at the infamous Big City Records on the Lower East Side of Manhattan where he became one of the go to guys for breaks and samples. It was at Big City where he established friendships with some of the biggest music producers in the game. He has been a special guest on shows such as Scratchvision hosted by DJ Scratch of EPMD, Behind The Groove w/ DJ Spinna at APT/NYC) and Behind the Groove with Chairman Mao (APT/NYC). Since 2008 he has been a part of the Tools of War New York City Park Jams spinning at both Harlem Hop and Diggers Delight which he considers one of his favorite events to do.
