I’ve got a gig coming up soon with one of my favorite line-ups ever. I’ll be sharing the decks with Ticklah, Small Change, Operator EMZ and Natasha Diggs at the Gemini & Scorpio loft, and The Frightnrs will be playing a set of their inimitable NYC reggae styles at Jackpot!
Friday, July 18 – Gemini & Scorpio Loft – Secret Location – $10
The following Friday, I’ll be joining longtime friends and party starters The Pietasters on another booze cruise around the city. Get wild with us!
Friday, July 25 – Aboard The Jewel – East 23rd St. & FDR Drive, New York, NY – $25
Summer is finally upon us! This Sunday, I’ll be eating delicious arepas, dipping my toes in the water, and playing tunes from 4:00 onward at Caracas Rockaway with Ticklah and Hahn Solo. Special thanks to Rata for setting up this gig.
Sunday, June 8 – Caracas Rockaway – 106-01 Shore Front Parkway, Queens, NY – No Cover
Next Wednesday, Agent Jay is kicking off a new night at Grand Victory in Williamsburg with a little show by bandmate Vic Ruggiero. I’ll be DJing afterward with him for the Big Payback!
Wednesday, June 11 – Grand Victory – 245 Grand St, Brooklyn, NY – $5
This Sunday afternoon, join me with Hahn Solo and President Carter for a ton of reggae, rocksteady and dub at a place called Friends and Lovers in Crown Heights. The last time all three of us joined forces on the decks was back when Motor City Bar was still open in the lower east side, almost a year ago!
Sunday, May 18 – Friends & Lovers – 641 Classon Avenue, Brooklyn, NY – No Cover
Next month, I’m heading out to Hawaii for a much needed break from this polar vortex that’s been covering NYC with snow and ice. Hahn Solo and I will be joining forces once again to spin records in the middle of the Pacific Ocean!
Friday, February 7 – Anna O’Brien’s – 2440 S Beretania St, Honolulu, HI 96826 – No Cover
The time is upon us once again! This year, I’ll be joined on the decks by Grace of Spades, and the openers are Uzimon and The Shivering Brigade. As always, I’m sure The Slackers have a few tricks up their sleeve for this one.
Friday, December 20 – The Bell House – 149 7th St, Brooklyn, NY – $18
I’m leaving for Paris to meet The Slackers on the road. We’ll be hitting France, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, and Germany together!
Ben the Beyonder was kind enough to ask me to bring some tunes to The Rock Shop in Brooklyn for Spinning Wheels this Friday. It’s going to be a lot of fun as we plow through a whole heap of 60s soul and other treats! I’ll open up the night around 9pm, and word on the street is that Ticklah (billed as Earl Maxton for those in the know) will be doing a set later on in the evening.
Friday, October 4 – The Rock Shop – 249 4th Ave, Brooklyn, NY – $5
Coming up later in October, The Apple Meets The Orange for a bashment celebrating K Vibes‘ birthday! A team of New York City selectors including myself, Diggy Brown, Twice, Joseph Demension, President Carter, sound system operator Chanter, and heavyweight Downbeat Tony Screw will all be making the trek out to Munchie’s Lickle Taste in South Orange, NJ. A feast will be served and 45s will be played!
I’m very excited for this, as Munchie’s was kind enough to deliver some oxtail to me at the last Reggae On The Boardwalk event this year, and it was delicious. I can only imagine that having it prepared fresh at the source will be better. Come out and enjoy the food and music with all of us.
Saturday, October 19 – Munchie’s Lickle Taste – 307c Irvington Ave, South Orange, NJ – $5
It’s been a great summer, but all things must pass. President Carter Van Pelt will be hosting the last Reggae on the Boardwalk of 2013 this Sunday. I plan to do a tag team set with Ticklah slinging 45s and Little Dan of the Frightnrs blessing the microphone with his unique style early in the afternoon. Please join us from noon until sundown at West 21st Street on the boardwalk.
Sunday, August 25 – Coney Island – Boardwalk at West 21st Street, Brooklyn, NY – No Cover
My weekend is jam-packed with gigs. Friday night at Love So Nice is the official screening of Brooklyn Rocksteady, a documentary about Jamaican music in NYC that’s been years in the making. After the film, stay for DJs playing the finest reggae you’ve ever heard at a punk loft. Contact me privately for the address if you need it:
Friday, July 19 – The Swamp – Secret Location, Brooklyn, NY – $3
Saturday is one of my favorite shows of the year, every time. It’s the return of the Slackers Booze Cruise! I’ll be playing soul, reggae, ska and some weirdo tunes while the band takes a breather between sets on the boat. It boards at 7:00 and leaves at 8:00 sharp from Pier 83, so don’t be late!
Saturday, July 20 – Aboard the Circle Line – W. 42nd Street and West Side Highway, NY – $40
Finally, Sunday I’ll be joining my buddy Rata and M. Fasis at Caracas Rockaway for Shake It Up! Expect boogaloo, Latin soul, rare groove, funk, and whatever else I feel like grabbing from the crates. We rock from 3:00 til 10:00, it’s on the boardwalk, and you get to stuff your face with arepas. I can’t wait.
Sunday, July 21 – Caracas Rockaway – 106-01 Shore Front Parkway, Queens, NY – No Cover
Hahn Solo and I just launched a new Sunday afternoon summer gig at the edge of Crown Heights. We’ll be at Atlantic Co weekly, playing the finest in vintage reggae at a bar with a backyard. Come check us from 4:00 til 8:00pm – we’ll have special guests from time to time, and this Sunday it’s Agent Jay of The Slackers.
Sunday, June 23 – Atlantic Co – 622 Washington Avenue, Brooklyn, NY – No Cover
