April Funky Brunch Number One!

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

The first weekend of April was a wild one for DJ Pete Pop. He started it out Friday night, spinning his boss sounds at The Silk Factory in Newburgh. The Silk Factory is located in a great big brick building that was constructed in 1910 and to house an actual silk factory. Now it’s a great big, multi-space, event venue, restaurant and probably an art gallery. Anyway, on this night, Pete Pop swung the joint, standing on the stage which was placed on the back of an old pickup truck.

On Saturday, Pete Pop dragged his turntables and records over to The Colony in Woodstock for the Hawk’s Nest Shop’s Vintage Market and Rock ’n’ Roll Dance Party. The Colony is one of the area’s premier music venues. In fact, our pals The Daddy Long Legs are going to play there in a few weeks (which reminds me I should get tickets before it sells out!). The event was fun, with dealers selling all sorts of vintage clothes, tiki mugs, jewelry, records and such, but the dimly lit room made it nearly impossible to see the fabulous stuff that was for sale. However, Pete Pop had no problems playing his fabulous records. They sounded terrific in the room. When Pete Pop needed a breather, he asked Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus to spell him, which he was happy to do, playing Pete’s records!

The next day was Sunday, which means Funky Brunch at Mama Roux day! Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus was asked to fall in and spin some jams and he did that with glee. The place was full of Funky Brunchers and the music Pete Pop and The Phast Man played had them all boppin’ their heads as they chewed their vittles. At the end of the Brunch, the chef put out some fried chicken, biscuits with gravy and a salad for the Mama Roux crew and the DJs were happy to partake.

By the way, Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus will be swingin’ at the Funky Brunch on the next two Sundays. On April 9th (Easter Sunday), DJ Pete Pop has to cut out early, so The Boog will be there most of the day. On the 16th (Greek Orthodox Easter Sunday), DJ Pete Pop will be out of town, so The Boog will be flying solo. Don’t miss out on the fun and excitement of the Funky Brunch—especially don’t miss out on Mama Roux’s excellent food!!

Here’s a list of all the records Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus played at the Funky Brunch, held on April 2, 2023.

None of these records are for sale.
