By Way Of Taps: A J Dilla Tribute

Event Type
Event Description
By Way of Taps: A J Dilla Tribute is just that, an homage to the life, legacy and music of James Dewitt Yancey. Nico Rubio, Artistic Director of 333 (Three Thirty Three), has choreographed this all Tap show to a score of J Dilla Productions and Samples. Not only performing in the show, Nico DJs the music live, with a few transitions pre-mixed. The cast is 333 and friends, all of whom are either actual family or Tap Family, who grew up dancing together. BWOT highlights the musical similarities between Tap Dance and Hip Hop cultures, while acknowledging Ascended Masters such as J Dilla, Roy Hargrove, Fela Kuti and Stan Getz.
Doors at 7pm, Performance at 8pm.
