Raphael Deas has been a part of the Boston scene from the age of 15 as a break dancer on the streets of Boston. He went on to open for many early hip-hop acts such as Curtis Blow, the Fatboys, and Run DMC. He was a featured dancer at night clubs. After many small group and solo music ventures, a chance meeting with Maurice Starr at a local recording studio landed him a spot in the pop/funk band Homework (Epic/Sony Records). Raphael has shared the stage and TV screen with Michael Jackson, Will Smith, New Kids on the Block, Expose, Perfect Gentlemen, Sweet Sensation, the Dance Party USA family, Technotronic, and many more. Connecting with his Native American heritage brought him national success with a "Song Of The Year" nomination in 2011 and a win for "Best HipHop/Rap Song" in 2012 at the Native American Music Awards, along with "Song Of The Year" 2011 "Best New Male Artist" 2012 and a second "Song Of The Year" win at the New England Urban Music Awards in 2013. As a lifelong martial artist and fitness enthusiast, Raphael now combines his music, love for fitness, and entertaining in his new ventures. #TheRaphaelShow #GrownNFunky has been on the air since 2012 and combines his love for #TheFunk of the 80s/90s along with new independent artists of all disiplines and reaching people with his message of Fitness, Faith, Funk, and Foolishness!!
