04.26.09 5th Street HOUSEQUAKE @ ZANZIBAR | Session#2

Photobucket


ROUND 2! From the creative minds of DMOCARMELBACON comes LA’s newest creative musical Jamfest.. 5th St. Housequake! Sprinkle in some Soul, Rock, Jazz, Funk, Hip Hop and Broken Beats add a dash of LA’s bangin’ new house band, FAULTLINE, and top it off with DJ A-Ski and you have a recipe for some next level sh*t! Every last Sunday we push the musical envelope and introduce to you some amazing live music from some of LA’s dopest artists at one of the premier spots..ZANZIBAR! – 1301 5th Street, Santa Monica, CA 90401

We have assembled a collective of creative spirits to come together to create a fresh new energy not seen in LA. Featuring special surprise guests and musicians as part of the HOUSEQUAKE. New talent, too, are encouraged to come join us on stage during the open mic sessions happening at every event!

This week’s Musical guests are LA’s own Rhett Frazier Inc. and Chase Allen… bringin’ the heat with that brand of FUNK that just puts that *ss in motion! Not to be missed…don’t be sleepin’!

Chase Allen… Chase Allen’s music is R&B and soul with the energy and catchiness of Maroon 5. The tunes are definitely radio-ready, although some, like “Who the,” where Allen asks, “Who the F- do you think you are?,” may not exactly be radio-friendly. Be that as it may, the songs are so strong and the melodies so memorable, especially “Lying Awake,” you’ll have no choice but to sing and dance to this funky white boy’s beats.

Rhett Frazer inc….The Rhett Frazer inc band grew up alongside an unusually broad range of influences including: Rock, Soul, Funk, Pop, Hip Hop, traditional Swing, Hard Bop, and Blues. They are bringin’ the kind of heat that has enabled them to perform, tour and record with some of the best in Music…

We also are having our OPEN MIC SESSION (sign up at 9pm) —singers, mcs, instrumentalists, dancers welcome! Doors 9pm — Only $5!!! Can’t be beat..!

Support the artistry..support the genre bending music MOVEMENT…for more info please email us at: 5thstreethousequake@gmail.com..be there every last sunday of the month!
