Rocky Dawuni @ Zanzibar in Santa Monica - 12/3/09

I can't believe I'd never been to Zanzibar in Santa Monica until this past Thursday when I went there for Afro Funke Night. My buddy Johnny Elkins from The Muddy Reds had told me that Thursdays were the best night at Zanzibar so I decided to go for my 1st time (with my girlfriends Sarah & Melissa) on a Thursday.

Instead of having a DJ like they usually do for Afro Funke Night, Rocky Dawuni & his band were performing. The cover charge was $12 instead of the usual $7 or $10 but it was worth paying a little extra to see such a fun, live reggae show! Rocky was extremely entertaining on stage & his brass section was sweet. After pre-partying with a couple bottles of 2 Buck Chuck, my girls & I were extra inspired to dance up a storm! 

Zanzibar is a great venue & has live music every night of the week. I'm going back again this Wednesday 12/9 for OM which is the 2nd Wednesday of every month. My friend Aaron Byrd who has a show on KCRW every Thursday night from midnight until 3am is one of the participating OM DJs & he guarantees a good time!
