Afro Jumble!

Posted on by Frederik Petzoldt, Posted in gigs, rusty beat club .

Yes we got a fresh Rusty Beat Club party coming up! It’s going to be the last one at Rasa, which is sad.. Rasa is closing: no more money from the governement for so called “world music” at his legendary venue this year. But I’m not in a complaining mood and lets face it, it’s no surprise the way things have been going lately in Holland for culture and music. All the more reason to truly celebrate when there is a opportunity to do so and make the music shine! So we’ve got a great DJ line up planned some great decorations and we are going to party! Expect lots of hot Afro Funk, Latin psychedelia and hypnotizing Tropical vibes, Afro Jumble! And to make things even better we’ll be doing our thing after a concert by the great Afro Funk band that started in the 70’s in Benin, Orchestre Poly Rythmo! click for the link

Impression of a true feelgood gig. Spinning back-to-back with my buddy LedjMette as we presented Rusty Beat Club at Houtfestival 2015 in Haarlem. We played Afro Funk uptempo Latin, soukous & bollywood till sundown. We had a great audience that were happy to keep on dancing till the last beat!

Another good Rusty Beat Club gig coming up! I’ll be playing a number of sets with my pal LedjMette of Rusty Beat Club at the friendly and always colourful Houtfestival in Haarlem. Lots of quality bands from around the world will perform here. We’ll be playing a couple of festive sets at the silent disco and after that another dancefloor set with “live” sound! So plenty of time to play some really spicy stuff 🙂 Come and join the party, free enterance and it takes place in a beautiful park too!
