Drew Redmond swings at Sofisticated Savage!

Sofisticated Savage is a Drew Redmond concoction: he and a guest DJ swing with fuzz-toned garage and up-beat R&B records all night at the Bar Below Rye in Downtown Williamsburg, Brooklyn. On Saturday June 28, Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus got the call to swing… and swing they did. These two DJs had the place jumpin’. At one point, about 80% of the attendees were boppin’ out on the floor!

Spinning records with Mr. Redmond is always a gas. He’s got some good ones, and one can’t help but come away with additions to the old “want list” after a night diggin’ his selections. Plus, he is the kind of person who can keep up his end of the conversation when discussing the joys of collecting records on the Legrand label.

The Bar Below Rye is an elegant and cozy joint with a nice DJ booth and excellent sound system. It is located, as one may guess, under a restaurant called Rye on South First Street. The restaurant has an excellent menu and the Boogaloo Omnibus was able to take advantage of it when he ordered a desert item: warm chocolate cake with pistachio ice cream. Delicious! Going back for more soon!

Warm chocolate cake with pistachio ice cream... or what's left of it!!
