Since this past summer, my pal Jus’ B and I have been throwing a monthly day party called Disco Matinee at Grand Star Jazz Club in Chinatown. We’ve been lucky to be able to bring in some amazing locals to guest DJ, like Mr. Michel, who played with us on October. We’ve also been lucky to have a good crew of regulars who have been sticking around on the dance floor until the house lights brighten and the dinner cravings get stronger. 

Disco Matinee has been a blast so far and I’ll keep you posted on when we do it again, but, for the time being, here’s my set list from October 8, 2023. Thanks to everyone who made it out to the club this month.
