On July 1, 2007, BLP hosted our very first show…an after-party for the D.U.M.B. (Disco Biscuits/Umphrey’s McGee) show at Pompano Beach Amphitheatre at a small little bar known as Cheers featuring none other than our good buddies, The Heavy Pets. WOW…how things have grown! The SoFlo music scene, the BLPfam, The Heavy Pets and all the other great bands we’ve worked with along the way.
We have worked as hard as always to put together a proper celebration of the milestone aiming to include as many of our friends as possible…four nights, four venues, nine bands and the BLPfam…we hope to see you out!
On Thursday 6/28, we will kick off our FREE Thursday night AURA Parties at the Funky Biscuit with hometown homeboys Aquaphonics! This is an event that we hope takes off over the following months and develops into THE spot to be on Thursday nights in SoFlo.
Friday 6/29 is STACKED at the Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery with three of our faves. Ketchy Shuby will kick the night off as they do so well before handing the Bamboo Stage over to longtime SoFlo stalwarts Cypress. Then Fusik closes out the evening with a power set of their infectious funk.
Saturday 6/30 is something special. We’ve worked on a LOT of shows at the Culture Room over the years, but this marks the first time we’ve hosted our own event in SoFlo’s baddest club. We hope everyone comes out early to hang and set the tone for the evening. SOSOS will start things off on the patio with their chill vibe, and the first 50 attendees will receive a special BLP birthday present PLUS we are offering everyone who attends a chance to win a pair of AURA Music & Art Festival tickets. Then the main stage will take off with sets by COPE, The Resolvers and The Heavy Pets. We are also offering a special BLP Family Invite (PW: BLPfam) for Friday and Saturday for just $20 which includes taxes and fees EXCLUSIVELY through BLPfam outlets.
Then Sunday 7/1 will be a special edition of our weekly Rockout With Your Cookout hosted by local super-group, El Groundscoro for an electrified jam rotating members of The Heavy Pets, Fusik, Cypress, The Resolvers, COPE, Ketchy Shuby and MORE through the grooves! We will also up the ante for the FREE BBQ and encourage everyone to come out early grub up and get ready to get down!
