GET IT NOW!!!
Saturday, February 27th, come feed your soul addiction with Nadir Omowale and Caleb Gutierrez! Two bands of straight soul and funk with non-stop music spun by DJ Joe G. Get there early to get your drink on and be ready to party!
The music that flows from the mind and soul of Nadir Omowale simply defies genre classification. R&B, Rock, Funk, Hip Hop and Jazz are spun into such a heady mix through his recordings and performances, that the listener no longer has any interest in limits or labels.
Nadir’s music represents the evolution and celebration of an ancient blues credo, in that it tells stories from the heart, for the heart. It is also a reflection of all that is funky and joyful.
Caleb is one the hottest male singing artist in the Motor City. He has style, good looks, charm, humility and an incredible voice. For years we have heard that distinctive voice resonating throughout the concert halls and nightclubs of Detroit as the popular lead singer of The Infatuations. But now Caleb has chosen to embark on a new solo career backed by an exceptional group of musicians who have come together.
Nadir and his outstanding live band bring their blazing brand of Funk Rock to CJ’s Lounge, 9901 N. Main St, in Whitmore Lake for one special night, on Friday October 23. No Cover, Doors open at 10:30 PM, following a private party at the venue.
“Come enjoy a delicious dinner at Captain Joe’s before the doors open,” directs Nadir, “because you will need that fuel for the dance floor! We are gonna light up Whitmore Lake on Friday night!”
It has been some months since the debut of Joe Jaber’s highly anticipated second recording and it’s accompanying video, both entitled “Keys to the House”, and the key to the perfect place and time to showcase and celebrate the projects had seemed frustratingly elusive….until the arrival and advice of friend, fan, seasoned performer and benefactor Ty Stone… ”Just do it,” said Stone, “Throw the damn party….Better late, than never!”
SURPRISE!!!! FUNK PARTY AT BLACK LOTUS TO TEST THE NEW LIVE MUSIC ROOM
Nadir Omowale and the Funk Squadron: Christopher Spooner, Steve Caldwell, Jeff Rebrovich, Tunnel Seven and Jason Bonaquist promise to burn down the new stage.

Friday, November 14 was a night full of surprises as Nadir, Christopher Spooner, DJ Ray 7, and Volcano visited the CaveRadio studios and appeared on the show Big and Bigger.
The fellas talked about Nadir’s Electric Lounge, discussed their favorite war movies, and played a few funky tunes including an unexpected and highly unorthodox rap battle between Volcano and some random dude from the bar next door. Hilarity ensues…

In early June, Nadir and the band converged on the legendary Studio A at WDET radio in Detroit for a live recording and interview on Ann Delisi’s Essential Music. The band fired off smoking versions of “Daddy’s Cane” (from Nadir’s award-winning debut Distorted Soul 2.0) and “Go It Alone” (from 2012’s critically acclaimed disc The Book of Jonah).
