Celebrating 3 years of CHURCH, the final few days of the CHURCH album Kickstarter campaign and my 5 year anniversary of moving to LA, this Sunday we’re doing it up the way we do at The Virgil for CHURCH LA: SundayService.

Surprise guests and CHURCH regulars will be joining me for an epic live set, and the guest DJ lineup is a collection of my favorite LA selectors and spinners in two rooms: Anthony Valadez (KCRW), Damon Turner (GREEDY City),DJ Destroyer (Umoja/Strictly Social), DJ House Shoes (Street Corner Music), Jeremy Sole (KCRW), Sean O(Dublab/KPFK) and Son ZOO (Ethio Cali).

We Present Church

Commentary: It is a treat to play with one of my idols and good friend Mark de Clive-Lowe but when he invites musicians like legendary bassist Freddie Washington and sax phenom Walter Smith III, I’m beside myself. I think I can speak for Church regular (and first lady) Nia Andrews when I say that we are looking forward to exploring some new territory on this particular Church. And there are so many amazing musicians in LA, I may even get the opportunity to step aside on the second set and watch a surprise drum legend go to work. Who knows? One thing is certain; this night will be fire. I highly recommend. Five stars.
