Duke Reid Tribute Night

Photo Recap: Bamboo at Cha Cha Lounge – July 28, 2016

David Orlando, otherwise known as music aficionado and DJ extraordinaire Boss Harmony, has revived his night of vintage international selections: Bamboo. After several years on hiatus, Orlando’s DJ night – featuring Jamaican, Latin, and African selections – has returned. Bamboo’s new location at Cha Cha Lounge in Silver Lake, with its mid-century Mexican aesthetics, is ideally suited for the night. Come listen to the atmospheric soundscape he creates at Bamboo every last Thursday of the month. Free, 21+, 10pm-2am, 2375 Glendale Blvd., Los Angeles.
