Non Stop Bhangra#77---New Year, New Chapter, New Venue
More Room, Bigger Sound, Later Hours
Same Fun Vibe
You all asked for more room to dance and a better sound system, so we have spent the winter working on securing just that. The journey for Bhangra in SF has always taken the full village, and we need your support to help NSB grow in the new year by spreading the word.
As always the night will kick off with the ritual dance lesson followed by performances with Dholrhythms Dance Company into Non Stop Bhangra DJ sets with residents DJ Jimmy Love, Rav-E plus NSB regular J. Boogie + Pavit on dhol.
Introducing a new format, NSB will now have late night sessions from 1:30 to close where we plan on bridging the gap between Bhangra and the other cutting edge sounds in the new year as we grow NSB! First in this series, we are excited to bring you a Surya Dub Set with Maneesh the Twister and Kush Arora! Mashing up Bhangra with the freshest underground vibes, they plan on keeping the party going late night mixing in Tropical, Dancehall madness with their signature Surya Dub sound.
Come join us for a brand new chapter and experience one of a kind night!

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 -that's 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, alongside live Dhol players, live painting, and visuals, the group has won legions of fans with its monthly events in San Francisco.
Non Stop Bhangra was founded in 2004 when Dholrhythms founders Vicki Virk and Suman Raj teamed up with DJ Jimmy Love with the goal of bringing Bhangra to a wider audience. The first Non Stop Bhangra was hosted to celebrate the one year anniversary of Dholrhythms by providing a dance space for students of Dholrhythms Bhangra classes. Since then, 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.
In addition to the monthly event, Non Stop Bhangra Collective has performed at some of the largest stages in the West Coast including San Francisco’s renowned Stern Grove Festival, TED XSF at Yerba Buena Center For the Arts, Goldman Environmental Prize Ceremony at War Memorial Opera House, Inaugration Ceremony of Mayor Ed Lee at SF City Hall, Michael Franti’s Power to the Peaceful in Golden Gate Park, New Mexico’s ¡Globalquerque!, Grand Performances in Los Angeles, Pasadena’s Levitt Pavilion, and Canada’s Salmon Arm Roots and Blues Festival and many more.
