Mile High Soul Club Will Play the 2014 Westword Dish

Our annual celebration of the Denver dining scene, Dish, will be Sunday, September 7 in Sculpture Park at the Denver Performing Arts Complex. Over 40 area restaurants will bring samples, and drink samples are included with the price of the ticket as well.

We're telling you about all this food and drink on this here music blog because of today's development, which is that Mile High Soul Club will play this year.

DJs Dogboy, Tyler Jacobson and Steve Cervantes won our Best Club Night award earlier this year for their monthly night held at Beauty Bar; here's what we had to say about it:

A monthly club night that's been going strong for close to five years, Mile High Soul Club is the place where Northern Soul and Motown fanatics can share the dance floor with folks just looking to get down to the throwback sound. DJs Dogboy, Tyler Jacobson and Steve Cervantes rotate on the ones and twos, curating sets of well-known favorites by Aretha Franklin and the Five Du-Tones and more obscure tracks by the likes of the Showstoppers and Rita & the Tiaras. The DJ trio has recently started booking live acts under the Mile High Soul Club name, but the focus is still on providing the right sonic atmosphere for busting out the bird, the pony and the watusi.

So yes, that should be exceptionally pleasant. Here's a (not super high-quality, admittedly) video of the trio opening for Lenny Kravitz.
