After a long hiatus from hosting events at General Lee’s Cocktail House in LA’s Chinatown district, I made my return at the end of last year with two dates–first in October and the other in November. This Friday January 17 marks my first Chinatown appearance of 2020, and I’ve branded it ‘Rum-N-Sugar’, to acknowledge the lands where African and Latin music are deeply rooted. I’ll be mixing classic and current expressions of this pan-African music: Fela to Falz; Mighty Sparrow to Machel Montano; Celia Cruz to Nicola Cruz; Marley to Movado and James Brown to Jay-Z for example. See you on Friday!

If you haven’t been, come check out our Marina Soul Club social nights at Melody Wine Bar in East Hollywood/Virgil Village. It’s a chill night of wine (and beer!), food and conversation built around the music of the late 70s and early 80s: soft rock, lite disco, breezy jazz, as well as island grooves and coastal soul on vinyl, handpicked by deejays Ryan Baysa and yours truly, Glenn Red. Meet up with some friends and meet us there…Happy Hour all night!

Every Thursday in February–and hopefully beyond–I’ll be bringing slinging some tasty soul-jazz-world rhythms during Happy Hour 4-7pm at The Mayfair Hotel LA’s Library Bar. In fact, I’ll keep the platters turning and the good vibes rolling throughout the evening as the bar transitions into a concert setting for the hotel’s weekly ‘Live From The Mayfair’ series featuring musical artists and bands flashing brightly on many a tastemaker’s radar. Here’s the schedule for the remainder of February. See you there!
