NON STOP BHANGRA COMES TO THE EAST BAY!!
NON STOP BHANGRA COMES TO THE EAST BAY!!
In April, Non Stop Bhangra is hosting a special East Bay Edition of its monthly night at the New Parish in Oakland. After years of feedback from people about bringing Non Stop Bhangra night to the East Bay and having it be accessible to people under 21, this month we are making it happen. The full Non Stop Bhangra production ventures out for one of a kind night featuring a special live set with guest headliner, Mickey Sing. Still holding to its tradition, the night will start off with the ritual Bhangra dance lesson and performances by Dholrhythms Dance Company and dj sets with NSB’s Jimmy Love and DJ Rav-E plus live Dhol drumming with Pavit and Mehul and visuals by Amar to keep the party rocking. If you have never made it out to a Non Stop Bhangra night it, here’s your chance to come experience it on this side of the bridge. Don’t miss it!

An Award Winning Event and Collective, Non Stop Bhangra is a unique experience that celebrates the beautiful and vibrant spirit of Bhangra, a traditional Punjabi folk music and dance. Imagine a scene from a Bollywood movie smack in the middle of a thumping nightclub-swirling colors, the rhythm of pounding feet, & the relentless energy of brilliant beats--thats Non Stop Bhangra!

Highlighting the ancestral roots of Punjabi dance while pushing boundaries with contemporary influences, Non Stop Bhangra is a genre-busting elixir of North Indian Bhangra music and dance, mixed with reggae, hip-hop, and electronica. An ever-evolving collective of dancers, DJs, drummers, vocalists, and musicians, Non Stop Bhangra is a non-stop party. Featuring dance lessons and performances with Dholrhythms Dance Company, and music by DJ Jimmy Love, the group has won legions of fans with its monthly events in San Francisco. NSB has made this traditional style a serious dance floor craze in San Francisco, drawing the most diverse crowds to join in the frenzy. NSB is a destination, creating sold out nights and write-ups as one of the best dance floor nights in San Francisco.
