All the Jheri Curl Funk, Champagne Soul, Lazer Boogie, and SLOW JAM goodness from 1977 – 1987 you expect from us, as well as: playertastic tuxes, corsages, taffeta dresses, Mr. G, the “Picture Man”, and the coronation of the Axel F Prom King & Queen.
We’re going to get over our sadness the only way we know how: by dancing, singing and remembering.
All the usual Axel F jams will be in play, we’ll just be carving out some special extended blocks of songs for Chuck Brown and Donna Summer, and not just the tunes that everyone knows.
A year ago, my partner DJ Jahsonic came up with the brilliant idea to dedicate an event to all the R&B, soul, electro and roller skating jams that are never played at ’80s parties, and name it after Eddie Murphy’s character from Beverly Hills Cop. Here’s a mix to pre-game for our anniversary party this Saturday.
