The weekend is almost here...can you feel it? To help get you in the mood, I have a new mix for you all up on mixcloud. April 17, I had the honor of opening for Rio de Janeiro superstars, Orquestra Voadora, at my favorite place in the world to hear live music, Rio's legendary Circo Voador. Also on the bill were members of the Parisian brass band mafia, Dumb & Brass and Les Fines Polettes. This night marked a major chapter in my history as a dj in Rio de Janeiro and shit was all the way LIVE! Massive thanks to everyone who came out and supported!
In honor of the headliner's roots in New Orleans music, the set features loads of down and dirty NoLa funk. It doesn't stop there though. We also get dosed with some disco, soul, jazz, afrobeat, hip hop, latin grooves and even a touch of Washington DC style GoGo music! Enjoy and hope to see you all this Saturday for the 2 year anniversary of Botafogo Social Club!
I am supremely happy to announce that tomorrow night, I have the ultimate pleasure of playing at my favorite venue in the entire city of Rio de Janeiro, Circo Voador! Not only this but I will be opening for one of my favorite bands and one of Rio's favorite bands, Orquestra Voadora, just back in town from their Europen tour dates. This should be an amazing show; as Paris, France brass band heros, Dumb & Brass and Fines Polettes will be on the bill as well. If you made it out to my gig at Teatro Odesseia last week, you know how fun these guys are! The 'Flying Circus' will be rocking and Lapa will be on fire tomorrow night! Do what you go to do but make sure you are there early and are ready to get down!
As some of you may know, I had a serious issue with my brazilan visa come up this week and may have to leave the country MONDAY! So, please, come out tomorrow, welcome Orquestra Voadora back to Brazil and help me make this one muthafunkin' despidia to remember! Spread the word, spread the love, spread the funk!
