There is no party like an Afrolicious party, and the Afrolicious Soundsystem takes it to another level with live percussionists and guest musicians this September 28th at Mighty for an exclusive 3 hour set of dancefloor bliss.
2012 has been a huge year for the Afrolicious project with their second release on ESL Music coming out to critical acclaim and the band touring California and Colorado and playing the legendary Red Rocks Amphitheater and DJng Outside Lands Music Festival and Burning Man.
Afrolicious began as a weekly party in San Francisco and now encompasses a full 12 piece live band as well as the DJ duo of Pleasuremaker & Señor Oz. Their inclusive unique blend of electronic music with live organic instrumentation and Afro, Latin and Tropical influences are highly addictive and have moved crowds at legendary venues from New York City's Cielo to Rio de Janeiro's Circo Voador.
When the Afrolicious party activates on the soundsystem at Mighty there is no chance for the club to stand still, everyone is guaranteed to be dancing!
Rounding out the bill will be OM Records J Boogie (Om Records) and Izzy*Wise.
Afrolicious is San Francisco based collective who perform live with a ten piece band and also as a dj duo with live percussionists and MCs.
Afrolicious has established itself as both one of the most legendary weekly parties in San Francisco, and of the top live/electronic bands on the scene. Started as a weekly dance party featuring DJ's and brothers Pleasuremaker and Señor Oz alongside percussionists, MC's and horn players, and an amazing crowd from day one, over the years it has evolved as founding DJ/Producer Pleausremaker (Joe McGuire) alongside brother Señor Oz (Oz McGuire) hooked up with some of the most exciting personalities in the Bay Area music scene and started writing original music under the alias Afrolicious. Around 2010 the live Pleasuremaker band started including some of this new 'Afrolicious' material and added more of the percussionists and vocalists from the weekly party to form what is now the Afrolicious band. Between their weekly party and sound system shows that involve the brothers DJing alongside live percussion, they also have a 8-12 piece live band that emphasizes the organic elements, instrumentation, and energy of a live ensemble combined with club heavy beats and textures the weekly party has come to be known for.
Afrolicious band and sound system have performed at such legendary venues as Red Rocks, Sierra Nevada World Music Festival, Electric Forest Festival, Snow Globe, Burningman, Sea of Dreams, The Independent, Great American Music Hall, Elbo Room in San Francsico (5 plus years weekly residency), Cielo, Nublu, Bembe, Zanzibar, Silent Frisco
