Pre-Thanksgiving Bugalú, with Lookie Lookie
Note set times: 9:30 and 11:15
Lookie Lookie's Accurate parties are always a rollicking good time, replete with sensation-seeking sybarites eating, drinking, dancing and making merry.
We're doing it again this Saturday. You can dance off a few pounds in advance of Thanksgiving before putting them back on. Or just listen and enjoy the deep Afro-Caribbean grooves, tight horns and big singing melodies.
As always, basic admission of $20 gets you in for an eight piece band, beer, wine and food. You are heartily encouraged to BYO and help the cause, and there are opportunities for you to ante up a little more loot onliine or in person if you can afford it. The eight members of the band and the "venue operator" appreciate every penny. The more we collect, the more of these parties we'll throw!

Bugalú para el siglo XXI (the 21st Century)
Lookie Lookie revives great 1960's songs by Richie Ray, Joe Cuba, George Guzman, Pete Rodriquez, Eddie Palmieri, Jimi Hendrix. Bugalú pollinates mambo with elements of soul and American pop; with strong soloists and deep, complex grooves, Lookie brings an element of jazz exploration to the mix.
Four percussionists, three horns and a bass, with everybody singing, means breaking waves of rhythm and melody.
And remember, you don't need to know the first thing about Latin dancing to shake your booty to Lookie Lookie. But if you are an expert, that will work too. And it ain't no crime just to listen: with eight fine musicians up there, there is plenty for the ears.
