Zach Deputy on Knock N' Roll: "I Grew Up Fighting in South Carolina"

Zach Deputy is a beat-boxing, guitar-playing, Puerto Rican, Saint Crucian, Irish, South Cackalackee cracker, one-man looping band experience.

He makes good-time island music mixed with funk, soul, R&B, bluegrass, and even some Spanish classical guitar. And he does it all while sampling himself live.

Tomorrow, he plays Knock N' Roll: A Night of BBQ, Boxing, and Music at Tobacco Road alongside Thump Fight Gym fighters and bands including the Lee Boys and Juke. Here's what he has to say about his first show at a boxing match, the craziest fight he ever saw, and the importance of violence.
