DJ Quik brings back his popular jam session style concert series Quiks Groove to the House of Blues in Los Angeles located on the Sunset Strip. The series will begin September 25th, 2009. Quiks Groove combines the elements of Hip-Hop, R&B, jazz & funk against a back drop of live music with the concert series becoming known for its intimate gathering of impromptu special guest stars. DJ Quik stated,
“This is my own musical play house. Quiks Grooves are special to me because they are not your typical DJ Quik show. Quiks Groove’s give me a chance to be a fan of music again and invite out artists that I have admired and BlaQKout with them under the appreciation of musicianship and artistry. You will never see the same show twice and you never know who might show up. The new partnership with the House of Blues on the legendary Sunset Strip is sure to make each night one to remember.”
Last year, Quiks Groove sold out Los Angeles’ own Key Club, as well as The Grove in Anaheim where Quik performed with a live symphony. Guests from past Quiks Grooves’ include an array of Hip-Hop and R&B stars, including Xzibit, Ricky Bell (Bell Biv Devoe), Lady of Rage, Kurupt, Yo Yo, Jay Rock, Murs, Truth Hurts, Problem, Latoiya Williams, Dogg Pound and Raekwon. Quik’s Groove and the House of Blues plan to announce new and exciting special guests to join the line up for the September 25th event.
Quiks Groove is tentatively scheduled to continue at the House of Blues Sunset Strip in December 2009, March 2010, and June 2010 with an all-star red carpet event to launch the series on September 25th.
