Afrorikan Vybe with Dennis Perez


Editorial Review

The Afrorikan Vybe nights were some of the best experiences at Club Five's early years. The Philly-based team of Dennis Perez and Rich Medina rocked sets that turned that big room into an intimate space where Perez's Afro-Cuban touches came together with Medina's funk leanings. It was the same energy that went on to fuel Rich's successful run of Jump-N-Funk Afrobeat parties. Dennis will be rekindling those conga, clave and bata drum memories when he plays at Eighteenth Street Lounge tonight.
