FRIDAY KIND OF LOVE : Everything Old Is New Again

Friday Kind Of Love is a new night with a familiar feel and a retro groove. With DJ Unieq on the wheels of steel, he mines deep into the world of Motown, Doo-wop & old soul for tracks you've either never heard or never thought you'd hear again.

Live music was a main attraction, and with The St. Jukes Band  (Daniele Decario (b), Clarence Walker(k), Froy Arajuo(sax), Gabi Basurto(d), Tetsuya Moriguchi(g/md)) - the night was filled with harmony provided by the vocal quartet of Jeremy Erwin, Ombrey DeGrate, Lyndsay Haldorson & Bobby Dillard. Their versions of some of the greatest songs in music history kept the audience on their feet and singing along!

The early start time (6pm) allowed for master barber K.G. Superstar (owner/operator of The Blade Barbershop) to give complimentary straight-razor shaves in a barber shop atmosphere in an area of the club.

Additionally, The Velettes - dressed like a glam burlesque version of The Supremes - kept those in attendance attentive and delighted with their choreographed performances throughout the night. (The Velettes are Charlene Rose, Sascha Escandon & Kelsey McCowan). Their very presence caused a rush to the dance floor by anyone who was still sitting down.

Friday Kind Of Love is the concept of club producers Carolina Cerisola and Sascha Escandon aka The Floor Productions  (The Floor Improv Night, The Show). Their vision of a night with feel-good music, a lack of pretense, and of course - lots and lots of dancing - has captured the attention of club-goers of all ages and backgrounds. Friday Kind Of Love is held at Harvelle's Long Beach.

Lyndsay Haldorson gives us a warning that she's trouble!! (You Know I'm No Good)

Ombrey does Amy proud!! (Me & Mr(s). Jones)
