At Lucille’s Bar & Grill – Show at 11:30PM (Doors at 10:30PM)
Dj Turmix presents: BOOGALOO! sponsored by FANIA records. A tribute to 60’s Latin Soul and Latin Boogaloo with live perfomances by SPANGLISH FLY and guest DJ’s!
SPANGLISH FLY is New York City’s only band dedicated to reviving and renewing the music known as Latin bugalu or boogaloo, the sound that sprang from the street corners, the transistor radios, the pool halls and the clubs of 1960s Spanish Harlem. Featuring 11 members with origins in Puerto Rico, Cuba, Mexico, the UK., Canada, “Loisaida” and Upper Manhattan, Spanglish Fly comes together to play the mixture of soul, r & b, and Latin rhythms that was born in El Barrio. The band’s live shows are explosive Latin Soul parties with packed dance floors. Fans, whether they’ve been listening to boogaloo since back in the day or just since yesterday, shake their thing to Spanglish Fly’s original tunes, which pay homage to the boogaloo genre while refreshing it for a new generation. They get out on the floor for the band’s arrangements of boogaloo classics and vintage soul hits. A Spanglish Fly show is a night of stirring melodies, danceable grooves and instant crowd engagement, including the popular Bugalu Dance Lesson. Audiences go wild dancing the boogaloo or simply freestlying it, feverishly responding to the instantly accessible sounds.
“DJ Turmix has been instrumental in the recent latin boogaloo revival in NYC, spinning his extraordinary latin boogaloo sets all over NYC”
