Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus and Mr. Gaylord Fields are all thumbs at the DYNAGROOVE!

The second Friday of the month has become very popular at Teddy’s Bar & Grill, with diners coming from around the city—Long island and New Jersey, even—to chow on the great food and dig the great audio atmosphere as presented by the DYNAGROOVE. Friday April 11 was no exception, as host DJ Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus was joined by the great WFMU DJ Gaylord Fields in a program of cool jazz, charming cha-chas, provocative pop and enticing exotic rhythms.

Mr. Fields is always a perfect guest DJ for the DYNAGROOVE. If you ever listen to his show on early Sunday evenings, you would know that his eclectic enthusiasm for magnificent melodies naturally corresponds with the dynamic of the DYNAGROOVE: groovy music! Mr. Fields is a guest at the DYNAGROOVE several times a year, so make sure you catch his scene the next time he swings.
