Smoked Out Soul: Congo Sanchez, Zebuel, The SOS Players
We have a special treat for you in celebration of 420! Congo Sanchez of Thievery Corporation is rolling through.
The evolution of this ensemble has happened naturally over the past year and a half. Having already captivated audiences from coast to coast, and now with the completion their first full length record, 'Dealin With This', it is clear that Congo, Haile and Flex are on the rise as a cutting edge musical force.
Congo's time as the drummer for Thievery Corporation has clearly had an effect on his ear as he continues to explore the down-tempo, reggae mezcla, with an obvious hip-hop overtone to the composition. Listeners of 'Dealin With This' will hear an array of sounds and rhythms, paying homage to the roots of music with thick layers of percussion; signature to the Congo Sanchez sound. All of this accompanied by a conscious message and an authentic lyrical approach creates a superb listening experience.
Congo Sanchez will be joined by guitarist/DJ Zebuel and percussionists Paul Oliphant & B Lee along with special guests emcees and horn players. Plus we are now featuring specialty batch cocktails by Fred Acebo and $2 tacos by Alfredo Gasca!
