Nicky Siano Deejaying in SF Tonight

I couldn't be more excited about tonight as disco pioneer and founder of the legendary disco club The Gallery, Nicky Siano, will be deejaying a four hour set here in San Francisco. According to many sources, this will be Siano's final San Francisco appearance and it will take place at the Project One Gallery (251 Rhode Island St). I must admit that I've been waiting to see this legend deejay for quite sometime and it will be interesting to see what era of music he decides to play. I'm definately hoping he takes it back to his early roots with many of the gems like Bonnie Bramlett's "Crazy 'Bout My Baby", Brend & The Tabulations' "A Little Bit of Love", and Exuma's "Exuma, The Obeah Man" (to name a few) that were featured on the amazing Soul Jazz comp that was released a few years back that payed tribute to Siano's legendary Gallery parties. I must admit that it's really great to finally live in a city that hosts legenday deejays like Siano. This will definately be one of those "can't miss" parties that everyone who lives even remotely close should attend. Here is another Gallery-era gem in Zulema's 1973 classic "Giving Up" from her album Ms. Z. to get you excited for tonight.

I am so excited for this!!!! Fran├žois K + Danny Krivit and NIcky Siano in the same month is crazy. I only hope the venue is apropos, as I've never been there before.

P.S. That Zulema track is one of my favs also. Nice one.

Incredible, this track is mentioned in Edmund White's classic book "Dancer From the Dance" and I've been dying to hear it at some point, thank you. Let's hope for some Pam Todd, or Inez Foxx's Circuits Overloaded.
