If you haven't yet been to Dozen Street, come and be prepared to have a new favorite bar! Dozen Street offers a selection of beers and wines but is becoming famous for its craft cocktails. The bar is also famous for the amazing mirrored mosaics on the street front and on the walls inside. Plus, play pool for free anytime at Dozen Street! Or enjoy the spacious patio in the backyard! Dozen Street boasts plenty of free parking in a fenced lot right across the street....

On Friday the 22nd, get to Dozen Street early to enjoy Ezra Reynold's weekly happy hour piano! He will be playing with The Future of Air Travel, classic vocal jazz but with the theremin doing the vocal lines... Very interesting. Then look forward to a dance party:
9pm - 10:15 Huerta Culture
10:30 - 12 Cuchillo e Palo
12:15 - 2 La Organizacion Kumbiambera
ONLY $6 (that's only half a dozen dollars) to get in!

Huerta Culture plays dance music for parties. The band mixes cumbia, ska, reggae, hip-hop, blues, rock, and balkan influences to create a sound that has been dubbed 'psichocumbia'. With 4 singers in the band sometimes all switching verses throughout a song and singing in English, Spanish, and Quechua (an indigenous language of Bolivia), Huerta Culture keeps arrangements dynamic and eclectic. The phat bass and rhythmic keys are accompanied by a wizard trumpet. Some songs also feature the guacharaca and the Andean pan pipes. In 2014 Huerta Culture released the full length album HOMEGROWN. Check it out at

Cuchillo e Palo specializes in fun, energetic music from Cuba, South America and beyond, playing son, salsa, cumbia, cha-cha-cha, bolero, and more.

OrganizaciĆ³n Kumbiambera has been, since 2010, playing music based in the "sonidero" movement that was originated in Mexico City in 1960's.This style consisted in having a DJ that played cumbias, guarachas, sones and salsas slowing them down while at the same time talking over a mic all the time sending greetings and such. OrganizaciĆ³n Kumbiambera is taking back those songs from the past and playing them live.
Organizacion is composed by musicians from different states of Mexico that were influenced in different ways but from the same origens of the "sonidero" movement. This makes for this group a band that compiles and revives the "Sonidero" movement from its origen, trajectory and present.
