  • Bossy Boots

    New Orleans, LA

    A decade after hearing Roy Lee Johnson’s ‘Busybody’ (Okeh) played by legendary record collector Kurt Wood on University of Georgia’s “Who Put the Bomp” radio show and attending a party marveling at his rooms of floor-to-ceiling shelves of 45s, Bossy Boots was poking around the dearly departed flea markets in Chelsea and suddenly felt compelled to look for that very record; thus a collector was born. Shortly thereafter, eBay was discovered, WFMU record shows were attended, and many passionate and long-time record collecting friends from all over the world were met, generating a frenzy of record-seeking, dj’ing and dancefloor adventures, from ModChicago, SF, Atlanta’s Rhythm & Booze, to NYC’s Debutante’s Ball, Subway Soul & Smashed!Blocked! parties, and a monthly with Garage Hangover’s Chris Bishop, “Switched On.” Garage, Soul, R&B, Psych, and Freakbeat are all favored, and I’m thrilled to kick off the mood of the great Ponderosa Stomp Hip Drop!

  • Stanfel

    Detroit, MI

    Detroit native Adam Stanfel is a full time collector incorrigible and a part-time party rock disc jock. An honors graduate of The People’s Records Institute of Music Geeketry and a member in good standing with the Hamtramck Chapter of the Mystic Knights of the Mau Mau, he has gladly lent his hand to a stunning number ill-fated cultural ventures within the Motor City. He is prone to poor esnipe decisions, and spends an unforgivable amount of time copying and pasting track listings into the Youtube search field. 30 plus years of idiocy did however land him in backing bands with many Fortune Records recording artists and a few cool dj gigs in cities even outside of the midwest. Expect a heavy dose of raucous r & b that Berry Gordy would have turned his nose up at, and blues blasters from the factory floor, and even maybe some (gasp) northern.

    Being a life long digger and music lover has ultimately lead to Brewerytown Beats record shop in Philadelphia. After two years in business selling “stax o’ wax”, a collaboration between Brewerytown Beats and Jamie Records formed, and we have remastered and re-released several records from the Arctic and Phil L.A. of Soul record labels. This collaboration has peeked my interest in Philadelphia music, and i have been able to dive deep into the history of Philadelphia music using my access to collections and the people who made Philly Soul/Funk music happen. Enjoy it with me.
