Homage is a music concert series honoring the musical giants responsible for altering the way our music is sampled, felt and heard.
For their contributions and influence on jazz, soul, hip-hop, R&B and neo-soul, EVFA & ArtDontSleep hosts its third installment of Homage with back-to-back live performances by Phil Cohran accompanied by his sons, The Hypnotic Brass Ensemble and William Hart, paired with Venice Dawn, who are currently producing a collaborative album.
DJ sets by Lefto & DJ Spinna, Anthony Valadez, Expo, Seano and Rani D with Azul 213 hosting the festivities.

To help celebrate and promote the event above the Brass Ensemble has released their version of the Outkast classic SpottieOttie you know the rest of it. Anyway this is helping lovely with this hangover I’m nursing right now, so I’m sure it will do well to brighten up your day as well. Sit back and enjoy and if you are in Los Angeles on the 23rd check the show out, sounds like it will be well worth your while.
