afro funké | thursday march 29

Thursday March 29 marks AFRO FUNKÉ’s first event of 2018, certain to be a colossal one as Brooklyn’s NICKODEMUS–Wonderwheel Recordings chief and creator of the legendary NYC to worldwide ‘Turntables on the Hudson’ events–makes his return to our deejay booth!! Longtime fans of Afro Funké will remember that Nickodemus was part of two of the most memorable nights on our dance floor at the old Zanzibar venue, especially as headliner of 2011’s 8-Year Anniversary celebration. His fluency in a broad spectrum of genres and his rhythmic, uptempo repertoire of beats and melodies from all over the world have made him one of the most sought-after and well traveled deejays since the 90s. I’m completely honored to serve as the opening deejay for both Nickodemus and my longtime AF partner in sublime, JEREMY SOLE on what will be an incredible night of music, dance and togetherness.

The main deets are on the flier above (which I happily collaborated on with J.Sole–or perhaps I should say–that he completely rocked up a few levels!), but here is the complete lineup of performers on both floors:

NICKODEMUS, turntables

JEREMY SOLE, turntables

GLENN RED, turntables

DJ JAHNEKO, turntables–upstairs lounge

DJ ELIXIR, turntables–upstairs lounge

KAHLIL CUMMINGS, live percussion

JAHANNA BLUNT, featured dancer

DAUNTE FYALL, featured dancer

NATIVE SOL, featured vendor

ROCKY DAWUNI, host

CARY SULLIVAN, producer

Make plans to be there, lace up your boogie shoes, and as always…wear attire to perspire!
