A couple weeks ago, MiamiNew Timesintroduced you to Dangerflow
, the latest high-energy, multi - genre - fusion party band to score a coveted weekly residency at Jazid. Like fellow Jazid favorites Locos Por Juana,
touches on cumbia and other Latin rhythms. But the addition of soul singer Eric Stinnett and MC/frontman Angel Ocean gives the group an added slick hip-hop vibe.
Although the group usually holds court at the club on Monday nights, tonight's gig is a special one for the band. It's a benefit for Mikey Stolzenburg, an eight-year-old in Weston who lost his limbs to a flesh-eating bacteria. Ocean first heard of Stolzenburg's plight on CBS 4's local news. "My band members and I were watching the news and we came across [the] story," Ocean says. "[It] touched us so deeply that we decided to do everything in our

As such, all proceeds from the door go to Stolzenburg's family. A number of other local merchants are also collaborating. V.I.P. Productions is providing a sound engineer; Guitar Center is donating a back line; Rick Case Honda is donating money to support the costs of mounting the show.
