22 Jul / Mod On The Road: I Left My Soul In Washington, DC
And it’s not like the place is in the middle of a busy neighbourhood bustling with activity, tourist attractions, other bars and restaurants. Somehow, my mates Michael and Manolo, turned this corner restaurant into one of the most exciting places I ever had the pleasure of spinning. Not only is the crowd sizzling and fiery but the food is too! I regretted having had a bite to eat before showing up to DJ because the menu was so tantalizing. “Don’t worry Patrick” said Manolo, “we all grab some food at the end of night. You can have anything you want. It’s on us.” He didn’t have to tell me twice! This is the only place where I got to DJ to a wonderful and receptive crowd and eat a mouth watering chicken quesadillas at the same time. And don’t get me started on the sangria!
I also had the pleasure to share the decks with Alyssa aka Baby Alcatraz. She sure knows how to keep feet moving! I found that we had quite similar musical tastes. In fact, there were a few tunes I had to strike from my own set because she beat me to the punch! This goes for my host Manolo too! His early reggae, ska and boogaloo set was a welcomed change of pace.
