The international aspect of The WHAM-O WATUSI nights at the Bootleg Bar continued on Saturday March 19 when the guest DJ was Tony Salvaje, an expecially adept DJ who was born in El Salvador.

Mr. Salvaje came to this country as a teenager and has since lived and DJed in Los Angeles and Seattle. His playing of fantastic rock’n’roll records is quite notable, and since moving to Brooklyn, he has often worked turntables at the fabulous ABC Rebel Nights and Shake It Up Sundays—two of the City’s best dance parties.

 

 

On this particular night, Mr. Salvaje rocked the house with his tremendous records, including those by acts from Peru and Mexico. He had the place jumpin’ all night. We hope to see him back at the WHAM soon.

This month’s WHAM-O WATUSI took place on the third Saturday of the month, trading with our pal Drew Redmond who usually holds forth at the Bootleg with his Sleaze to Please night, in order for host Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus to take part in the Subway Soul Club festivities on the first Saturday of March. The WHAM will return to it’s regular night in April (the 2nd) and, in keeping with the international jet-set theme of this year’s WHAM-O WATUSI scene, the special guest will be DJ Rata, a superb DJ from Venezuela who now lives in Brooklyn. He digs the rock, the bop and the mambo; and so will you. Be there!

Between his DJ sets, Tony Salvaje scored a replay on Bootleg Bar's groovy pinball machine at WHAM-O WATUSI!
