5:00 pm: Music by Double a band
April 13, 2018 –
Raised in a diverse community on Long Island, N.Y. Ahmad was exposed to a wide variety of Soul and Jazz at home. The desire to play an instrument started young. He would put rubber bands on shoe boxes and try to make music, and as a child he would sing whatever was on the radio with the family. His Mom sang with choirs in her youth, and his Dad would play Drums with his Uncles, ‘The Mitchell- Airs’. Both of Ali’s Grandfathers were musicians, his Mother’s Dad played keyboards, among other instruments, and his Father’s Dad played valve trombone, but passed away at an early age (Poisoned by a jealous Woman).
The family loved music, with some of Ahmad’s fondest memories being that of seeing greats at the Apollo, and singing La La Means "I Love You" to his mother, as Eddie O-Jay played it on the radio. In middle School and Jr. High he sang with the school Chorus, but later as a teen his desire to play guitar was strong. He had to wait till he got a job to buy his first guitar, but months later his mom seeing his desire and commitment lead her to buy him an electric guitar. A year and a half later he was playing in night clubs with some of Long Island’s top party bands. Music being music - he even played for local churches. As time moved on he continued performing, being featured on TV when Eyewitness News 7 in New York ran a story on a group he worked with, called “Premonition” about a con man who had ripped them off. They filmed the group and set them up with a recording session with legendary producer Don Kirschner at his Associated Studios in Manhattan, but as things didn’t pan with that group he found himself working with a hand full of other rock bands.
