Soul of the Boot Entertainment (SOBE) is the product of promoter and all round hustler, Scott “Papa Chop” Romero. SOBE specializes on event management, artist development, promotion, publicity, booking and hospitality services. Where SOBE caught our interest was of course their Latin editions of their popular Night Fever! concert and DJ showcases, a collaboration with Jeff Strange of StrangeTribe Productions. In fact, we’re so excited about the next Night Fever! Latin edition happening this Saturday, August 13, at Club De Ville that we are giving away a pair of tickets to one of our lucky Austin Vida readers.
This week’s Night Fever! installment features Austin based funk band, Brownout!. Led by Adrian Quesada and other members from Grupo Fantasma, Brownout! is one of the premier live acts in Austin. The group is currently working on their third album after releasing two critically acclaimed full lengths. Brownout! perform at 9:30pm.
ESL Music recording artist The Funk Ark headline the night’s showcase. The eight member Washington D.C. based funk collective combines elements of old school African and Latin funk of the late ’60s and early ’70s. The group is currently on tour in support of their new album, From The Rooftops. The Funk Ark perform at 10:45pm.
