Funky Brunch Rides Again!

DJ Pete Pop swings at the Funky Brunch

Our pal DJ Pete Pop continues to wow them in Newburgh. He does this every Sunday by bringing his excellent 45 RPM records to Mama Roux where he plays them for an event he calls The Funky Brunch. Every once in a while, he asks Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus to come swing with him. He did so for September 11.

Mama Roux attracts the finest people due to it’s excellent cuisine. The ambience of the club is significantly enhanced by the records played by Pete Pop, as he plays them with artful taste, inspiring several of Mama’s customers to leave their gratitude in the tip jar.

Mama Roux’s fabulous burrata shakshuka gumbo ya ya

In between his DJ sets, The Boog and Boogaloo Bag photographer Miss Nancy G could not resist sampling Mama’s fantastic food. They dug the gumbo ya-ya and burrata shakshuka, respectively. Hey, haven’t they eaten that before? Sure, but it is so good—and you can only get it at Mama Roux—one may as well eat it over and over.

For his part, Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus played a few funk records, a couple of New Orleans R&B platters, a couple of swell instrumentals and some soul sides. Dig it all right here:

None of these records are for sale!
