TITLE TOWN Soul & Funk Party is back on July 7th at Spirit! Join us for FIVE HOURS of the forgotten era of groove. Whatever it is - funky bass lines, foot-stomping soul, disco-funk rarities, or floor filling favorites - this music will make you wind up your waist and get into it.
This month, we welcome special guest DJ Justin “Juddy” Hopper. Currently living in England, Justin Hopper is a DJ, writer, artist and curator who, in the early ‘00s, helped cement Pittsburgh’s place in the growing soul and vinyl record scene. Armed with a few boxes of Northern Soul, cathartic ’50s & ’60s R&B, Latin Boogaloo, and then some - Juddy is back for a one night only affair and he’s been itchin’ to shake some action into your heads and dancin’ feet.
Now in its ninth year, TITLE TOWN upholds Pittsburgh’s rich DJ legacy with an appreciation for timeless tracks and seldom-heard sounds from decades past – Northern Soul, ‘70s nightclub Funk, deep Disco cuts and 80's Boogie, 50's and 60's vintage Rhythm & Blues. The Steel City’s #1 soul party covers it all and everything in between. It's Chuck Jackson meets The Jackson 5, the Steel City to the Motor City, with a feel-good house party atmosphere all night long.
The music was created for the dance floor: Uptempo beats, funky grooves, and a blast of infectious energy. TITLE TOWN navigates genres and eras, blending the best of labels such as Motown, Stax, and Chess with hand-picked rarities from regional soul scenes around the country including right here in the Burgh.
