friday january 17 | rum-n-sugar

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!

thursday january 9 | live from the mayfair

It’s only a day away and I still can’t wait to open this Thursday’s ‘Live from The Mayfair’ show for the amazing Ethio Cali and the young and talented K.Roosevelt with his forward thinking brand of soul music. Come out for a soulful, cozy live music experience that just might eventually turn into a bangin’ dance party!
