Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus and DJ Shakey swing at the DYNAGROOVE!

DYNAGROOVE in October is always a gas. The 2014 one, held on the tenth, was no exception. Teddy’s Bar & Grill was filled early with folks celebrating a birthday, diggin’ the scene and eating the fine food. Why do you think they call it the “DYNAGROOVE?” Because folks dine on Teddy’s excellent cuisine and groove to the swingin’ sounds provided by host DJ Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus. Special guest DJ was DJ Shakey, a most professional sort who played some super fabulous funk, soul, and jumpin’ jazz records for the DYNAGROOVE faithful. DJ Shakey has been an important component of the NYC vinyl DJ scene for quite some time, having DJ’d some boss parties (Rubulad, House of Yes, Dubday Mondays, Subway Soul Club, etc); hosts Shakey’s Record Fair; and is co-host of Warper Party Radio Extravaganza, an experimental music and audio art web program. DJ Shakey made provided excellent audio art of her own as she spun cool records while The Phast Man chowed down on Teddy’s famous Friday night fish fry!

For his part, The Boog played more cover songs than usual, in five different languages, and included three songs by Paul Revere & the Raiders in honor of Revere’s recent passing.
