House Of Vibe : Tuna Melt

Chali 2na (below) gave us a party we won't soon forget Wednesday night at Harvelle's! The night's theme was 'sweat', and that we did, as the non-stop dance floor remained packed and kinetic.
House Of Vibe took their playing to an inspirational new level, as the musicians - Greg Raymond (keys), Pete Antunes (drums), Kris Hawkins (guitar), Corey Cofield (bass), Anthony Brewster (keys and vocals), Sebastian Legar (trumpet) Shaunte Palmer (trombone), Dan Boissy(sax)and Amy Lou (percussion) - jammed furiously, stunning and moving all at once. Westside Tribe members Deploi, Jon Swift and Tony Tarasco, took the stage like they were doing battle. And winning.
The party's highlight was Chali and his brother Laid Law (above). The H.O.V. backed hour-long set of new songs and classic Jurassic 5 (Chali's rap group) had the crowd singing along, waving their arms in the air and thrilled with the awesome 'robot dance' (below) he and Laid Law perpetrated.
