Forgotten 45s: Sophisticated Soul with The New Day Dance Party

It’s hard to mess up a soul music dance party. Who doesn’t love to groove to the crisp, cool vocals of Al Green, or belt the R-E-S-P-E-C-T along with the Queen of Soul herself, Aretha Franklin? But everyone knows the big names of the genre, and most, if not all, of their hits. Those looking to broaden their soul, funk and R&B music catalog should check out The New Day: A Sophisticated Soul Dance Party. Since January, The New Day has been spinning some lesser known soul music from the late sixties through the mid-eighties, as well as flying in expert DJs from around the country to supply it. This Saturday, Friends of Sound Records’ own DJs coolhands and BSears are at it again with the help of special guests Wilson and High-C from Dallas, as well as a guest VJ, 4th Wall, aka Chris Jackson. And these guys aren’t playing around – they are some of the biggest collectors of soul and funk 45s from around the nation. For the sixth dance party, you can join these connoisseurs of cool at The Highball, which is where they hope to set up shop for future parties. The party rages from 9pm-1am, and get this: It’s free. Consider it a lesson in soul music you’re missing out on.
