Frankie Knuckles, the Godfather of House, at Vagabond this Saturday
Frankie Knuckles is hardly a man who needs introduction. The legendary
DJ/producer is a pivotal figure in the history of house music, having
begun his stellar career alongside Larry Levan in NYC and as resident DJ at the
Warehouse in '70s Chicago, back when house music was still an
experimental offshoot of disco. Not one to fade away into the past,
however, Frankie has managed to stay at the forefront of dance music
for three decades and his latest output, including a remix of Hercules
& Love Affair's "Blind" continues to command dancefloors worldwide.
Mr. Knuckles' performance is hosted by (who else?) Back Door Bamby, who
we can credit for bringing the gloriously decadent sounds of disco
house back to Miami since The Vagabond opened its doors last year.
Don't forget to arrive early so you can enjoy complimentary Belvedere
Vodka cocktails from 10 to 11 p.m.!
Frankie Knuckles at The Vagabond, Saturday, April 25, doors open at 10 p.m. 30 NE 14th Street, downtown Miami.
