Afrolicious has established itself as both one of the most legendary weekly parties in San Francisco, and of the top live/electronic bands on the scene. Started as a weekly dance party featuring DJ’s and brothers Pleasuremaker and Señor Oz alongside percussionists, MC’s and horn players, and an amazing crowd from day one. Over the years it has evolved as founding DJ/Producer Pleausremaker (Joe McGuire) alongside brother Señor Oz (Oz McGuire) hooked up with some of the most exciting personalities in the Bay Area music scene and started writing original music under the alias Afrolicious.
Started back in 2009 by three Bay Area vinyl collectors/DJs, Kento Tanaka, Elan Kamesar, and Vanka, plus the musician/producer, Antonio Guedes, BRAZA! have had glamorous highlights in its almost 7 years of activities. Grammy winning DJs have controlled BRAZA!’s console in an unprecedented fashion, bringing forward Brazilian/Latin flavored sets exclusively picked for the occasion. Names like: Nu-Mark (Jurassic Five), Spinna (BBE / Rawkus Records), DJ Nuts (Marcelo D2), Maga Bo (Tru Thoughts), Marcelinho da Lua (Bossacucanova), LEFTO (Blue Note), and so many other remarkable artists we are so proud to have worked with. In addition to that, the party was awarded SF Hottest Monthly Party, by SF Weekly readers, and it was the official music production company for the Macy’s Brasil Flower Festival, in 2012.
