- DJ Nickfresh is deeply inspired by the culture of Soul Train.
DJ OB-1 Benobi’s House Boogie takes place on the third Thursday of every month, highlighting a different genre of dance music each go-'round. The four-hour dance party continues with DJ Nickfresh. As a classically-trained musician, Jacksonville’s Nickfresh (Nick Puzo) brings a unique angle to his profession as a DJ, producer, and remixer.
Throughout his career, Puzo has DJ’d the Jacksonville Jaguars’ home games and even inducted the Soul Train brand unto the Smithsonian Museum alongside Questlove and Tony Cornelius, son of Soul Train host Don Cornelius. Soul Train is one of his deepest inspirations—Puzo even created the largest fan community, SOULTRAINFANS, sixteen years ago. On his Savannah trip, Puzo will even get to visit with a former Soul Train dancer—none other than Cheryl Day of Back in the Day Bakery! The Boogie Funk kicks off at 10 p.m. with 1978-1987 post disco boogie spinning until the wee hours of the morning. The event features lasers and a boogie juice bar.
Thursday, February 15, 10 p.m. – 2 a.m., all-ages
