The Reminders

The Reminders are a rare and remarkable musical duo seamlessly blending soulful sounds and roots music with insightful messages and thoughtful lyrics. The group consists of Brussels-born emcee Big Samir and Queens-born emcee/ vocalist Aja Black, a collective creative force that’s hard to beat. Big Samir weaves intricate rhythmic patterns with a bilingual French/English flow, displaying his street-smart credibility in both his lyrics and cool demeanor. This is beautifully complimented by Aja Black’s confident delivery, diverse cadences, and unique vocal stylings.

Campbell County High School (WY) had the honor of hosting GOODING and Funding the Future Live today as they shared the importance of Financial Literacy! We had this group come when I taught in Cheyenne and they did a great performance then and an Awesome show today!!! I think all parts of education are important, but as a Business Teacher, I’m biased in promoting how extremely important personal finance education is! Thank you to First Interstate Bank for sponsoring our show. – Andrew Borgialli, Teacher
