From DJ Mel Boogie - Hope all is good in your world. Some of you have been asking where my next 'Grown Folks' party is at, so I'm giving you a PERSONAL Invite to Soulstice ~ The Valentine's Edition!

For the first time EVER, I have the honour of playing with one of the DOPEST DJs in the CITY - the one and only DJ Sean Sax!! I'm amped because he ALWAYS shuts it down at The Main Ingredient, and you've witnessed his midas touch on the decks on Soul On Ice. I can't wait to have the chance to play alongside him. On top of that, the party will be hosted by Wan Luv!

It all goes down on Friday Feb. 4th at Revival Lounge (783 College St.) We'll be playing Soul, R&B and classic Hip Hop joints 'til da break-a-dawn (well, almost!), and I'll be diggin' in the crates for some of those house music classics!! Missing some of that feel-good music with a house party vibe? Would love to see you there!!

http://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/53005/venues-amp-booking/find-a-venue-near-you.html

Smith, Steve Semlitz/Cathy Glazer, Daryl Roth/True Love Productions, Susan Dietz/Mort Swinsky, Knitting Factory Entertainment and with Ahmir ‘Questlove’ Thompson.

A provocative and wholly unique hybrid of dance, theatre and music, FELA! explores the extravagant, decadent and rebellious world of Afrobeat legend Fela Anikulapo-Kuti.

Watch videos and view images of the original Broadway show on the National's Fela London website.

Using his pioneering music (a blend of jazz, funk and African rhythm and harmonies), FELA! reveals Kuti’s controversial life as an artist and political activist.

Featuring many of Fela Kuti’s most captivating songs and Bill T. Jones’ visionary staging, FELA! – an original new creation – comes via Broadway to London and the National Theatre.
