This Wednesday at @marvindc_ , we’ll be getting doubly wild since we’re kicking off Memorial Day Weekend, celebrating @isabelledeleon_ ’s birthday, and just feeling especially saucy for no good reason. Come sit in and jam, or just hang out and enjoy the vibe! Totally free to be there, but all donations this month go to @musicorps to help bring music to the wounded at Walter Reed in honor of Memorial Day. Shoutout to @thejogoproject for #thatpockettho. #triflingtuesday #wildinwednesday #marvindc #dcsoul #musicorps at Marvin

#Repost @dcsoulrecordings ・・・ Soap Box (Part 2) ......When Brown wanted to bring in a trap drummer and other musicians to broaden the sound, there was a falling out, and Brown formed the Soul Searchers. That occurred in ‘68. Fast forward into the ‘70s, and Brown’s past.....along with the band members he choose.....laid the foundation for Go-Go music using the Latin, jazz, top 40 funk/Soul sounds together as a way of eventually connecting songs to keep people in the Go-Go. (The heavy pocket trap drums were also a nod to the drummer from “And The Echos”, a Baltimore group Chuck greatly respected). This helped The Soul Searchers dominate gigs, and eventually, bands not doing this had a hard time booking work. From there the idea developed into the straight ahead sound of the 1980+ period that we are all familiar with. But when you hear bands or academic presenters tell you that in 1968 and 1969 a band played in a DC Go-Go and developed the Go-Go sound please remember to take it with a grain of salt. #dcsoul #dcgogo #chuckbrown #thesoulsearchers #soul #gogo #funk #latin #afrocuban #jazz

#Repost @dcsoulrecordings ・・・ Soap Box (Part I) - Getting kinda tired of listening to so called historians and experts talk about where Go-Go music came from and involving bands that had no bearing on its development. I hope people will one day gain awareness that there was a world of difference between a “Go-Go” or “Go Go” (the location), and “Go-Go music”, as it would come to be known, prior to the late ‘70s. Plenty of remarkably talented bands played in the Go-Gos not only in DC, but nationwide. Go-Gos spread from the west coast to the east and within their walls were the sounds of many bands across multiple generations and styles of music. My point is that a band that frequented a California Go-Go in the 1970s would never think to connect itself to Go-Go music, despite potential utilization of the call and response mechanism, percussion, etc., and therefore the type of venue is not the key to understanding the development of the music. So if it wasn’t just about being in a Go-Go, then what was the primer that kicked off the growth of the sound? The answer is much simpler than what presentations and readily available written documentation often elude to. Go-Gos were once a place to visit and hear bands play top 40 music, dance, wait for the next song, and dance again. Chuck Brown and his band decided to connect songs in order to not lose party goers to the breaks between sections. It was a hard stop business decision. As a bridge, the band used percussion, call and response, and other crowd drivers to accomplish this. The percussive Afro-Cuban style adopted by Chuck’s band was directly tied to Chuck’s experience with a Latin band prior to forming the Soul Searchers (as well as its adoption by groups across the US at the time). That band — The Los Latinos — had brought in Chuck to replace a keyboardist vacancy, but Chuck filled those parts on the guitar. Prior to this Chuck had primarily played blues and jazz sounds around DC and before that, at Lorton. He’d picked up other top 40 tunes and together with the Los Latinos, integrated their sound into the percussive heavy latin band.

I believe every woman needs a friend who can show her the ropes of #life, #love, being a woman in this crazy business. For over a decade, I’ve had that in my #OG, #avisharrell. Her shoulders ain’t never dry, cause I cry on ‘em when I need to. She knows of my peaks and my valleys, my triumphs and my failings. And she is CONSTANTLY challenging me to grow spiritually. And she be lookin’ sharp while doing all of this. Even when she’s wowing audiences around the world, she makes time for her lil sis, moi!!! Happy birthday to the one and only, Ms. A!!! Beautiful inside out.

The importance of having publicly accessible record label information is something I’m sure you understand — and as much as we all love Discogs, a detailed regional website still has its place on the shelf. We’d like to continue providing the same personally curated service on an updated platform. Please send a DM our way if you’d like to discuss the job or have some ideas to throw at us! #dcsoul

How about a truly meaningful Record Store (every) Day celebration? All of these mini bags were used to buy 45s sometime between 1960 and 1980 in the nation’s capital.

For those of you who’ve either owned or pined over the first Dyson’s Faces full length effort, you’ve no doubt seen this inner sleeve. Look carefully and you’ll see an individual named “Chico Palomino” taking credit for the sleeve’s brief written introduction. Engineer, producer, and label entrepreneur Jose Williams (Dimitri Music Company) once received a call from someone claiming to know Chico and demanding some sort of discount from his friend’s company. After a long laugh, Jose hung up on the man and offered some scraps to the friend sitting next to him. Chico, you see, was his dog. #dcsoul #dysonsfaces #cliftondyson #josewilliams #rjosewilliams #chicopalomino #dimitrimusic #soul #lp

5️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ rides 🚲 There are no words to describe how proud of myself I am in this moment - just gratitude for the ability to have reached this milestone. Grateful for bikes that don’t move, instructors that push me out of my comfort zone, and for a body and mind that allow me to do something that brings me joy.

Luther Harris (of the same family as Leslie Harris & the House of Fire), recorded this monster at Omega Recording Studios just across the DC border. Based on the particulars of the sound and obvious Earth Wind and Fire influence, I’d place the year close to 1979.

Flashback to May 22, 2007 when I visited eccentric genius Andrew White. After a full day of digging deep into his life and musical journey, I was preparing to leave when White grabbed a pen and inscribed the following on the back cover of “Who Got De Funk” — “To Kevin, all the best with this, your book, and this is the 5th Dimension Band”. (And if you don’t know, now you know). #dcsoul #dcjazz #andrewwhite #whogotdefunk #lp #jazz #funk #soul

On this day in 1984, DC’s Marvin Gay Jr., aka Marvin Gaye, was shot at his parent’s Los Angeles home. The Motown superstar died of his wounds that afternoon. His 70 year old father, the Rev. Marvin Gaye Sr., was booked for murder. Lieut. Bob Martin of the Los Angeles Police Department reported that the singer was at his father's home about 12:30pm when the pair ''became involved in a verbal dispute that led to a physical altercation, pushing and shoving.'' Subsequently, Lieutenant Martin asserted, the singer's father got out a pistol and fired three shots into his son’s chest. Marvin died just one day short of his 45th birthday. #dcsoul #misoul #marvingaye #marvingayedeath #soul #motown

Some Sangin’ Fools! Every once in a while I play a gig that is so good that even though I’m on the bandstand, I feel like I should shoulda paid for a ticket. Come Tuesday night to check out @syberspace at Blues Alley (with me on Guitar, @mrdturner on bass, @grooveworksent on keys, @leepearsondrums on drums, and @preciousjoubert and @soledler on supporting vocals) and I promise you’ll have a blast. 8pm and 10pm sets (pro tip: the late show is always the wild one...). #dcsoul #sysmith #bluesalley at Blues Alley

These artists either grew up in DC, or made a major musical impact while living in the nation’s capital. Gil and Leroy are givens, but can you name the others? #dcsoul #promophotos #soul #funk #jazz #disco #gilscottheron #vernonburch #leroyhutson #anacostia #carlanderson

Look we’re not saying Lightmare has the BEST KIND OF FRIENDS, but—no wait, that’s EXACTLY what we’re saying. Thanks for dancing and shouting and spreading the #lightmarelove at Velvet last weekend. And thanks big time to @grandchildrenband @kingsleyibeneche and Your Freedom Party for an amazing show! . . . #music #dcmusic #localmusic #lightmaredc #rockmusic #lightmare #song #vocals #keyboard #sax #saxophone #guitar #bass #drums #upandcoming #dc #dcpride #dcmusic #dcnightlife #washingtondc #localmusic #womenwhorock #femmeswhorock #soulmusic #soulpunk #records #dcpunk #dcrocks #whattodoindc #dcpunk #dcfunk #dcsoul

Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you an original Shrine Records trading card! (Quarter shown for scale). This tiny card was created for Shrine promo packs (!?!?!) that were given to promoters. The packs reportedly contained cards for label groups, a full run of records, and other promotional materials. Here’s to finding on of those next! #dcsoul #shrinerecords #lindaandthevistas #tradingcards #soul #promophoto

Stan Minor holds an image of his former vocal group, The Counts, who performed and recorded for Shrine Records during the mid 1960s. I certainly had a great time catching up with the man and digesting even more monumental anecdotes. Thanks for your hospitality Stan! #dcsoul #thecounts #shrinerecords #stanminor #vocalgroup

Despite what their name may or may not imply, I’m sure that the members of The 2nd Amendment Band would’ve been proud of all who participated in the march this weekend. Power to the people. #dcsoul #the2ndamendmentband #marchforourlives #funk #45rpm
