The Funky Brunch goes to the dogs!

DJ Pete Pop and Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus swing at the Funky Brunch!

On Sunday November 13, DJ Pete Pop hosted another Funky Brunch at Mama Roux, as he does every Sunday. On this afternoon, however, Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus was asked to come guest DJ… and so he did.

Mama Roux is a marvelous New Orleans-themed restaurant/bar located in the heart of downtown Newburgh, New York—the jewel of the Hudson River. Mama’s staff is made up of some groovy people. The decor has a subtle Mardi Gras ambience. The bathrooms are clean. The food is good. Not only that, but it was profiled in the current issue of The Hook magazine, a periodical that celebrates culture, art and community in the Lower Hudson Valley. On this occasion, it was suggested that we try the French fries—we did and they were extremely tasty. In fact, the fries were so good that they were gone before we could think to take a picture of them! We’ll have to order them again next time.

DJ Pete Pop surveys hot Funky Brunch action!

DJ Pete Pop is the busiest DJ of reet music in the area. He’s got his Sundays at Mama’s, of course, but also once-a-month gigs at Quinn’s and the Dogwood—both in Beacon on the other side of the river—plus he’s in negotiations to present a night at The Jet Set, a groovy new tiki bar that sits on the banks of the Hudson in Newburgh. If anyone can do this it is Pete Pop. He’s got some pretty darn boss records and he knows how to make them go round!

Four dogs swing at the Funky Brunch!

At one point, some Funky Brunch attendees pulled up in a pickup truck full of cute little dogs! They delighted everyone who walked by.

Everybody had a great time at the Funky Brunch. Here’s a list of all the records played by Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus that day (hopefully, no French fries grease was transferred to any of the records!):

None of these records are for sale.
