Popwell at the DYNAGROOVE!


Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus and Friar Popwell swing at the DYNAGROOVE!

The DYNAGROOVE wrapped up it’s third year of existence in fine fashion, with guest DJ Friar Popwell. Mr. Popwell is the driving force of the ultra-hip Take My Tuesday events at the fabled Friars’ Club in Midtown Manhattan. Each night features a musical act as well as groovy DJs at one of New York City’s most fabled nightclubs. It’s not open to the public, so you better learn the secret handshake if you want to be invited!

Meanwhile, back at The DYNAGROOVE, Friar Popwell delighted the faithful at Teddy’s Bar & Grill with an excellent selection of fabulous records, while host Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus sat and ate the catfish dinner (yummy!).
