2na : Not Just For Breakfast Anymore

It's another Westside Wednesday with Chali 2na of Jurassic 5 and the House Of Vibe All Stars.

Chali and his brother Laid Law threw down in pure hip-hop old skool style, as Brew and his Venice based crew perform surgery by funk on those fakin it and those that just came to shake their ass.


In the house tonight : Deploi, Fish, Pete Antunes, Shin Kawasaki of Jean Paul Yamamoto, bassist Walter of Audible Mainframe, Biff Chitlins, John Piazza, Amy Lou, Aric and Omar.

A big Fat Albert "hey-hey-hey" to Brew, Chali, Laid Law, C Wolfe, David, Liz, Dana, Candise, Ernesto, Jamie, Phillip and of course, M.G. - for shakin' it like a white girl.

Soul Funk Hip Pix

Every Tuesday night, Ryan Cross brings together some of the baddest players in town for a night of soul, jazz and funk like no other. Tonight the vocal talents of Octavia and Lisa Foreman with a band that featured Kenny Crouch on keys, Cornelius on bass, Cedric Anderson on drums and Pop on guitar, turned the heat up on an otherwise frigid March night in Santa Monica.

Octavia brought it!!

The house is full of funkateers and soul babes. (above - Miss Heather w your humble blogger). Like Putney Swope says "the Boorman 6 girl has GOT TO have soul". Singers Lisa Foreman and Octavia have got the soul.
