saturday september 22 | melody yacht club

I’m eagerly looking forward to being back at Eric Tucker’s ‘Melody LA’ restaurant in Silverlake on Saturday September 22nd, this time with another longtime deejay homie–BABY BUBBA–from Chinatown’s ‘Soul Sessions’ fame and, more recently, from his eclectic mixtape series currently in its fourth volume, Clean Living. While we’ve shared the decks a handful of times in soul, funk, hip-hop or world music contexts, turning yacht rock records will be a first for us and I’m pretty he’s as stoked as I am. Expect all the favorites–Kenny Loggins, Steely Dan, Hall & Oates, Boz Scaggs, Christopher Cross, Ambrosia, Player and the like==mixed in with some deeper and possibly just as cool, smooth and soulful cuts from lesser known artists of the day. Come dine and sip as we sail on wax all evening long. Here’s to easy breezy smooth sailing…hope you can join us.

saturday june 16 | melody on virgil

Coming up this Saturday June 16th from 2pm-7pm, I’m getting together behind the decks with my old buddy RICK WREN for an afternoon of sun-drenched tuneage in Silverlake/East Hollywood. We’ll be on the patio at MELODY ON VIRGIL, a French inspired bistro/wine bar owned by Eric ‘Wizdum’ Tucker, our longtime friend and fellow deejay from the LA underground music community. You may remember him as ‘Wiseacre’, his moniker while hosting the fantastic club and after hours events ‘Funky In The Middle’ and ‘TheLIFT’ (with Jeremy Sole, KCRW). Well, his new restaurant, offering a tasty French-inspired menu along with a highly touted wine list, has been the buzzworthy biz since it opened in late 2017. Stop by this Saturday and let the sun, the tunes and the food hit all the right spots!
