For the third time in six months, the NY funk behemoth Big Mean Sound Machine and the Peace & Rhythm DJs will team up for a night at The Root Cellar, P&R's home base in Greenfield, Massachusetts. But this time the party will celebrate the arrival of the brand new album by Big Mean, Runnin' For The Ghost, due out April 7 on Peace & Rhythm and Blank Slate.
The Root Cellar will be jumping yet again as we sweat to the extended psych-funk explorations of B.M.S.M. with a full dancefloor entranced in the deep grooves. P&R DJs Andujar and Bongohead will spin Afro-funk, Latin and Afrobeat vinyl before and between band sets.
Big Mean Sound Machine are a collective of over 15 analog artists spread out over the East Coast US bringing together musical languages of West Africa, Latin America, the Caribbean and North American funk to create a lush bed of rhythm and harmony that embraces even the most hardcore fans of both dance-funk and avant-garde jazz.
Saturday, April 15. Doors at 8, music pumps at 9. Join us for this record release party!! Purchase advance tickets here. $12 door/ $10 adv
