Saturday Night May 27 7 pm – 10 pm Black Masala ~ Gypsy Punk Party!
“Experimenting with a flirtatious combination of gypsy punkiness and brass, [Black Masala] can expertly churn an audience of awkward head-bobbers into a livened stew of aspirant dancers. For them, no groove is off limits.” – WRGW Music Blog

The Get Down and it’s iconic fashion of the 70’s was recreated with much thought & process. A lot of digging through vintage stores & rentals in New York. Getting the fabric and details were necessary and the results were spot on. 70’s designers Diane von Furstenberg, Halston, and Gucci opened up their archives for the show for research.

The Get Down by Baz Luhrmann, involved Grandmaster Flash and hip hop historian Nas. Consultants include Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Rahiem of the Furious Five, hip-hop’s first national recording star Kurtis Blow, Zulu Nation founder Afrika Bambaataa and even Kool Herc, the bedrock figure who invented hip-hop in a South Bronx rec room in 1972.
