    Charles Wright and the Watts

    CHARLES WRIGHT, founder and leader of the legendary Watts 103rd Street Rhythm Band pinned the world renowned "Express Yourself". His songs have been covered by legendary artists around the globe such as Tray Charles; jazz great Les McCann; Pop star Della Reese; Ohio Funkateer Rodger Troutman & Zapp; Musiq (Soul Child); former Monkey's Mickey Dolenz; The Ohio Players; and The Swiss Longtime Symphony Orchestra. During the rise of Hip Hop in the 80's many rap artists lifted chunks of funk from Wright's wax, to include N.W.A. Brand Nubian Funk; Naughty By Nature; Gann Starr; and Sean P. Diddy Combs. "Express Yourself" sold Bit Burger Beer, Algida Ice Cream, Toys and Nokia products across the European continent. The Los Angeles Lakers showcased "Express Yourself" at start-up games, and the NBA featured the soulful classic in its 2004 "I Love This Game" television Champaign. Kinkos used Express Yourself in its international marking strategy, and Kohl's Clothing Stores chose Express Yourself for its "Spring Fashion" theme, while the Jenny Jones Show used it as their them for an entire season.. Express Yourself also provided the theme for both the Democratic National Convention and the 2004 Olympic Games Celebration. By mid 2010 Coffee Mate had TV viewers stirring it up to the tune of Express Yourself. Other compliment to t8he unforgettable tune includes usage by U Draw; The PGA; Tide; Singer Sewing Machine; and the list goes on and on. Yet another compliment was made to the timeless appeal of Express Yourself when Good Morning America used it as the theme for their Advice Guru Talent Search. Whenever a motion picture film calls for an instantly recognizable sound track, Charles Wright classics have been utilized in films such as "Panther"; "The People Vs. Larry Flint"' and many others. His hit song "Do Your Thing" set the stage for a chilling plot turn in the 1970's pornographic study of "Boogie Nights". Wright's music has been used not just in action films but also in the comedy because it makes the audience feel food. Movies such as Brad Pity and Angelina Jolie's "Mr. and Mrs. Smith", "Cheaper By The Dozen", and Universal/Paramount film "The Little Fockers", starring Ben Stiller, Robert Dinero, the talented and passionate artist re-arranged a version of "Express Yourself" with a message to youth to "Protect Yourself" from sexually transmitted diseases. He performed the tune for an excited audience at the first Aids Walk Circle of Life Concert at the Los Angeles Greek Theater. Charles Wright's productions produced the documentary "Bring Back The Harmony" and the concert presentation "Live at the Ford Theater." Headed for the airwaves in his latest venture "The Express Yourself" TV Show" featuring guests such as Little Richard, Brenda Lee Eagar, Hank Dixon and Charles McCormick of the group Bloodstone. The show will cover legends from various fields of endeavor and especially the entertainment industry. But Charles isn't stopping there. He is also excited about the release of his 28th album, "Let's Make Love Tonight". in order to rekindle the hearts and souls of all who truly love good, true and Soulful music.

  • DJ ROME of The Soul Children/JuJu

    DJ ROME of The Soul Children/JuJu

    DJ Rome of The Soul Children has been a native of Los Angeles his entire life. His love for music reaches way back to pre-kindergarten when he would spend hours playing soulful 45’s on a mini-record player. He’s been hooked on records ever since he first saw Barry White’s “I’ve Got So Much To Give” LP spinning on the turntable of the family console. Heavily influenced by such artists as George Clinton, Parliament-Funkadelic, Cameo, Brass Construction, War, Earth Wind & Fire and Prince, Rome noticed a disturbing absence of these funk icons in most DJ sets throughout the L.A. underground, and thus, he seized the opportunity to fill the void. His extended and recurring residencies have included venues like Industry Jazz Cafe (Culver City), The Blu Monkey (Hollywood), Bar One (N. Hollywood), Air Conditioned Lounge (Santa Monica), Cafe Luna Sol, On The Rox (The Roxy), Viper Room, 5th Street Dicks/Chaos Cafe in Leimert Park, House of Blues (Sunset Strip,) The Mint, Zanzibar, and Little Temple. He has been a resident of every Soul Children function including "Brown Rice N’BBQ," "Together," "Together Again," and "JUJU", and has been the in-house DJ or guest MC with such artists as George Clinton, Lina, Joi, Mark De Clive-Lowe (The Politik), Raul Midon, Kim Hill, PJ Butta, The Dirty Dozen Brass Band (New Orleans), Laurnea (pronounced Lor-Nay) {Arrested Development, Loose Ends), Joy Jones, Ladybug Mecca, KC & The Sunshine Band, Res (pronounced REESE), Eric Roberson, Dead Prez, Graph Nobel, Michael McDonald, Teena Marie, Sy Smith, Erykah Badu, and Kenny Lattimore & Chante Moore. For 7 years, Rome was a production assistant on KCRW with Garth Trinidad on the show formerly known as "Chocolate City." Furthermore, he has worked with the Temple Bar in Santa Monica, California, a popular West coast venue that was known globally for hosting some of the most universally eclectic artists throughout the world with a distinct focus on neo-soul music. He was responsible for promotions, production assistance, website management, and writing copy for the weekly email blasts. He advances his plight with continuing DJ guest appearances and an extended 3.5 year residency at The Blu Monkey where he co-hosts "THE 4-MULA" (the formula) with his Soul Children partner Al Jackson, and DJ JEDI, formally of The Digable Planets.

  • The Deep Under

    The Deep Under

    A fiery trio with great melodies and improvisational chops. Utilizes Hammond B3 Organ, Guitar, Drums, Harmonica, Vocals

    Based in North Hollywood, California, The Deep Under is a collaborative effort between three great friends: Mike Mangan (Hammond B3 Organ, Keyboard Bass, Harmonica & Vocals), Josh Baldwin (Drums, Percussion & Vocals) and Mike Blumberg (Guitar, Bass & Vocals). The three musicians met in Los Angeles in 2004, while performing as members of two very different bands - Big Organ Trio and Revolutionary Side Effects. After multiple performances together on the same bill, the bands’ members began sitting in with each other at their live shows, creating a new chemistry, a much deeper new sound, and eventually a new band - The Deep Under. Their debut studio recording, a four song e.p. titled "Cop Moustache" was released in November, 2012.
