The merry month of May brought the DYNAGROOVE back to Teddy’s Bar & Grill with a whollop!! The place was jumpin’ with folks dining and grooving all night long. Guest DJ for the night was Nogood Nick, who brought some truly groovy records: Olatunji, organ grooves, Latin soul, Brazilian beat, Roland Kirk, etc. Most of these fine recordings were being played while Host DJ Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus was chewing on the most excellent calamari this side of the Newtown Creek! Also, he was very happy to see some of his friends who dropped by to dig the scene.
