THE BIG BHANG THEORY

LuvtoBhang!

What is ‘Luv To Bhang‘ u ask?  Plain and simple it is a celebration of BHANGra Music!  It stems from the deep love and appreciation of its roots, culture and of course music.  Started by two well known Toronto natives, Double AA, (DJ/Producer extraordinaire)  recognized as one of the best South Asian DJ’s in North America and around the world, and Manny Brar, founder of Desi Wear.

Being longtime friends, both of them share the same love for BHANGra.  Since early high school days the two have thought of many concepts, but never quite making it happen.  Then finally what they have thought of doing for years came to fruition over a Monday morning left over Thanksgiving lunch at Manny’s place in October 2006.

Both of them were sick of the stigma tied to BHANGra events and the brand association with it.  They both knew there was a void in the market.  The uni years had passed, and now BHANGra music was only being enjoyed at weddings.  This really can’t be the only place to enjoy BHANGra they thought to themselves!  Drinking flat Coke, on uncomfortable chairs, listening to long pointless speeches, really this is the only place I’ll be able to enjoy BHANGra?!?!

HECK NO!  And this is how ‘Luv To Bhang‘ was born!

Bhangra all Night

The core Toronto parties are limited to those 25+, a mature audience with some strict restrictions. Guys can only gain admission if they come with a female.  Why such restrictions?  Plain and simple, we don’t want a room full of guys!  (do you blame us!)  This policy is fully enforced, and has been welcomed by all (except for the group of ten guys standing outside and complaining on how this is unfair).  SUCKAS!

If you remember the days of basement parties at your uncle’s, and the pounding beat of Heera, Alaap, and Premi, as you danced in circles, well then this party is for you!

The phunky phresh anthems on two turntables are brought to you by Double AA.  Alongside the music we have live percussion by the ultimate tabla player on this side of the Faridkot District, Gurpreet ‘TheTabla Guy’ Chana.  On the drums we have fresh from his bus tour on Soho Rd, Paul ‘The Drummer’ Nanuwa.  The parties introduce the concept of the DJ along with live instrumentation throughout the night.

We play the best in Old Skool Punjabi, along with current and classic BHANGra anthems. Strictly BHANGra all night long!

To summarize it all, ‘Luv To Bhang‘ is for those pure BHANGraholics that love the music and culture, and want to dance all night long!
