That old geezer that plays Christmas carols on the grand piano in David Jones, better watch out. Joyride is coming for your spot. He has a new mixtape covering Christmas classics. Give Bing Crosby a rest and throw this on during Christmas dinner.
There is no way this one will not be massive. After a huge R Kelly Tribute and an equally big xmas ball, this time we are paying homage to the works The Neptunes.
The Accidents, led by the Samoan John Legend, Don Joyride, will perform two sets. The first a mix of covers and originals. The second set will be pure Pharrell and Chad bangers from N*E*R*D* to Usher to Justin Timberlake to Britney and so much more.
Any Neptunes jams missed by The Accidents will definitely be played by Levins, Shantan Wantan Ichiban and Joyride when they each serve up some Hip Hop, R&B and Soul goodies on the turntables.
Each of these parties has been a sweaty night of loose dancing and folks getting it on with each other. I don’t expect this one to be any different.
Here are a few tunes that will definitely get a play.
This jam ain’t for everybody. Only the sexy people. All you fly brothers and sisters, break out your ties and formal dresses for the Player Haters Ball. Playing everything from Marvin Gaye to Jigga will be DJs Levins, Joyride and Shantan Wantan Ichiban.
Also the Samoan John Legend, Don Juan Joyride with his band the Accidents will be performing two live sets on the night. First set starting at 12 midnight will be a mix of originals and some covers of new and classic soul. Then later a second set of covers of your favourite R. Kelly jams. Yes you heard right an R. KELLY TRIBUTE SET. Ignition, Real Talk, Vibe, Bump N Grind, I’m A Flirt maybe something from Trapped In The Closet… and so much more. Celebrate with us the insane comedy genius that is Kelz.
Best dressed on the night wins a meat tray and is crowned King and Queen of the first Player Haters ball.
It is all going down Saturday October 15 at Good God Small Club, 53-55 Liverpool St, City.
Music from Lanie Lane, Raphael Saadiq, Frootful, Estelle and more. However, the centre piece of tonights show is our tribute to the late great Miss Amy Winehouse. She was a troubled girl, but there has always been something I have admired about her rugged charm, brash sense of humour and honesty, which comes out with such feeling in her music.
Famed producer, Salaam Remi – who worked with Amy Winehouse on Frank, Back To Black and her unfinished comeback album – had this to say about Amy’s personality when recently talking to New York’s Power 105.1 FM.
“Amy had strong opinions on everything. …. She was very opinionated about what she liked. At the end, she was a real person,” he said. “She had a huge heart. We’d be working for hours and she would have everybody in the room snickering. She always had a joke. You could hear a lot of that in her lyrics, she could be sarcastic and she was extremely witty … but more than anything else she was a real person, an individual artist.”
“To put it all in a nutshell, Amy loved to sing, to write … that ability never left her,” he said. “She was very good at channeling her emotions into lyrics, and then being able to sing them. She was in a place to go forward and make it happen. … The way that Amy and I always created was, she would write and we would toss ideas around.”
Rest In Peace Amy!
