Lately a lot of my posts have about the music scene here in Miami. By pure chance I became friendly a member of “Coke”, one the top bands of the open house era of 60s and 70s Miami.
For me it’s been educational because as I’ve mentioned the music and the vibe was not of my father’s generation, nor of mine. It was that in between period. But great music is great music and I love this music that I’ve been newly exposed to.
Now there’s another open house event coming up. This time Coke or “Los Coke” as known back in the day is headlining the ticket along with “The Warlocks” who are reuniting after 40 years.
Now the only thing I know about The Warlocks is that everyone who cared about music during that era seems to unanimously think that they exhibited the some of best talent and musicianship available at the time. When a member of one great band on a ticket can’t stop talking about how great the other band on the ticket is you know they have to be good.
The open house will be nextSaturday June 18th at The Elks Club (10301 SW 72nd St.). This is the same venue from an earlier open house featuring Coke and it’s a great place to see and dance to live music. Plenty of parking and cash bar will be available. Additionally they’re having a best dressed contest for the folks who come in the best 60s attire.
As you can see from the flyer above you can buy tickets at “El Museo del Disco”, a gem of a record store located at 1301 SW 70th Ave or by contacting Cool Cats Entertainment at 305-392-0538.
This promises to be an amazing event. I hope some of you folks in our Babalu family can join me there. Get your vintage clothes out and come have a groovy time.
