DJ JEREMIAH AND THE AFROBEAT NATION:
It's never too late to change the world. DJ Jeremiah's and the Afrobeat Nation will celebrate and pay homage to the legacy of Fela kuti who fought for justice and peace for the common people.
"Afrobeat is more than just being a DJ," says Jeremiah Kpoh. "Afrobeat is revolution." For the 27-year-old Liberian native, known to San Francisco world music fans as DJ Jeremiah or, simply, Mr. Afrobeat, the genre represents not a violent uprising, but a movement of consciousness. (San Franicsco Chronicle)
Bring your dancing shoes and good vibes as Dj Jeremiah will be spinning Fela's funkiest recording accompanied by a group of seasoned, hard-hitting, musicians.
Whether Raw Deluxe is in its free-flowing improvisational mode or working through the sweaty structures of its awe-inspiring catalog, the quintet is always a sure bet for a good time. With a musical history that stretches back to the Bay Area's late-'90s acid jazz and hip hop scene, the band has spent nearly 10 years building a reputation for thier
high energy shows.
The band is comprised of Chris Spano - drums, Chris Arenas - bass, Matt Fleming - electric piano/organ, Tony Jurado - saxophone, and featuring MC's Lexxx Luthor, Mic Blake of Alphabet Soup and Tommy "Soulati" Shepherd of Felonious. Raw Deluxe can always be
counted on to cook up a savory mix of danceable tunes. If you like your funk steaming, try it Raw.
