On Saturday, October 24th at 9pm, deejays J. Malls and Gordy G. kick off the TITLE TOWN Funk & Soul Party at the Shadow Lounge. Guaranteed to be one of the finest, monthly dance nights in the Burgh’, TITLE TOWN launches from the ashes of two successful DJ events: The Big Throwback and Vipers Soul Club. This night will bring together juicy slabs of top-notch soul and righteously funky grooves mixed with a hefty dose of Motown, old-school rhythm & blues and Northern Soul.
To help kick things off, TITLE TOWN will feature New York’s own DJ, music historian, and DAPTONE records affiliate, DAVID GRIFFITHS. Griffiths is best known for co-hosting (along with Mr. Fine Wine (WFMU)) the respected and wildly-popular BUMPSHOP soul and funk nights in New York City. Earlier this year, David Griffiths and Daptone Records released the Bob and Gene lost classic “If This World Were Mine.”
Join us for 5 hours of non-stop dance music and DANCE-OFF with a $50 CASH PRIZE (!!!) in the middle of the night.
You’ll hear rare soul legends like Barbara Mason, Gene Chandler and the Voices of East Harlem, deep funk from The Caprells and The Whatnauts, and classics 45s from Jackie Wilson, Stevie Wonder and James Brown!
