When 3-year-old Kurt Beleck and his family moved from Florida to a small town in the middle of Michigan in 1995, Zinc was the first kid he met…in daycare. It was full-on hatred at first, but they soon became best friends, closer than brothers. Zinc grew up in a musical family and started out on drums (like his grandfather and uncle) before he switched over to guitar. Kurt and Zinc bonded over a common passion for music that drove them to pursue it; they started their first band, Hybrid Chaos, as freshmen and played throughout high school. Kurt recalls, “I couldn’t sing a note to save my life, but I could scream.”

Kurt and Zinc met The Godfather, a recent graduate of Airplane Mechanics School, at their high school graduation party and decided to change it up and add a second vocalist. As Kurt says, “The Godfather fit into the band like a long-lost brother. As a team, we work together to put every ounce of blood and sweat we have into every song.” From UNDERGROUND FIGHT CLUB’s humble beginnings in Zinc’s basement, it became clear that they had discovered their sound. Zinc elaborates, “We all love music that is aggressive and in your face but that you can also relate to. The Godfather adds a rap vibe to the mix. Together we started using all these strengths to build the sound that we have now.”

According to The Godfather, UNDERGROUND FIGHT CLUB’s music is “everything: the good, the bad, the beautiful, the ugly; it’s life, it’s death, the truth, the lies.” He adds, “I had a troubled and crazy childhood, filled with drugs, booze, violence and even murder. It was rough. I feel like I have a lot of emotion to share with the world.”

As for the band name, Kurt says, “We all come from a place where you fight to survive. Sometimes not even a physical fight, but a fight of mental control and self-stability. Growing up fast and holding your own are the only ways out of a town like ours.” He continues, “UNDERGROUND FIGHT CLUB represents a way of life, whether you’re an MMA fighter with a title, a musician reaching beyond the stars or just an everyday person that works the 9-to-5. We all fight with everything in life: a fight to not smoke another cigarette; a fight never to take another drug; a fight not to whoop the shit out of the first person that says the wrong thing.”

Together these three unique personalities have fused into a common unit to create a living band that thinks…hurts…loves…GROWS. The diversity comes through in the music, from the devil-horn throwing drinking anthem “Top Shelf” to the powerful angst of "Lights Out" to the thought-provoking stance on speaking your mind and the Second Amendment that is “America.”

Kurt issues an open invitation: “Follow us from start of one hell of a rock and roll adventure that is THE LIFE, THE SOUL, and THE BLOOD of UNDERGROUND FIGHT CLUB.”
