Set List

Mondays, The District

The Brass King is virtually synonymous with the Miami soul scene. Best known as the resident DJ at the Funk Jazz Lounge, Bekay has defected to Mello Mondays, the hot new spoken-word event at The District. He has also been spreading his collection of exclusive tracks, rare cuts, and R&B and hip-hop grooves via his own mixtapes, particularly the recent R&Bekay's Soul Selection Vol. 3. His sets celebrate life; as he likes to put it, Every day above ground is a good day.
