NON STOP BHANGRA #95--CRASH AN INDIAN WEDDING PARTY!
Have you ever wanted to crash an Indian Wedding Reception, where you walk into a room filled with bright beautiful outfits, arms in the air, swirling of colors as the dancing becomes an expression of the joyous occasion. Well here's your opportunity to become part of that exuberant celebration without the stress of last minute gifts and the long speeches. This month's theme for Non Stop Bhangra is "Crash an Indian Wedding Reception", without the guilt of not being invited.

Join the NSB crew as we take you on a colorful journey to experience an Indian wedding reception full with colorful decor, beautifully dressed people, sweets, henna, food, and endless dancing and music.

Put on your favorite outfit and your dancing shoes and show off the moves you will learn during the dance lesson or show off the moves you've been secretly practicing for the perfect occasion. Lets dance together like it is an Indian Wedding Reception!



The night's journey will take off with a "Baraat Mob" a dancing procession with live instruments in the streets (starting at 16th & Valencia) leading into the venue into
an interactive, fun, jam packed Bhangra dance lesson followed by the vibrant dance performances by the lovely ladies of Dholrhythms Dance Company.

The journey will continue with a special live set(singing & dhol) by Ustad Lal Singh Bhatti known as the "Godfather of Dhol". He has been playing dhol for over 40 plus years and is the master/teacher behind all the dhol players around. He is legendary in the world of Punjabi Folk music and we are honored to have him at Non Stop Bhangra this month. Its a rare opportunity to see something beautiful and unique so don't miss it.



After the live set, the night will continue with Non Stop Bhangra DJ's DJ Jimmy Love and guests DJ Sandeep Kumar (LA) and DJ Dhola alongside Pavit and Mehul rocking the Dhol Drum. Beyond sound and dance, Non Stop Bhangra caters to your eyes all night with visuals by DJ Amar.


The journey does not end there, outside the summer air will be dancing to the sound of live drums while filling your senses with the aroma of scrumptious Indian food by provided Curry Up Now. In addition, the aroma of mehndi (henna) will be around to decorate the palms of the beautiful women ready to celebrate. There will be a photo booth set up to capture your colorful experience.

Whether you are exploring a new culture for the first time or addicted to the music and its essence, this will be one night where you can get away from it all and dance the night away. So much more than just a club night, Non Stop Bhangra has truly turned into one of a kind cultural experience only found in the Bay Area.


The theme this month is "Indian Wedding Reception" so come dressed in your most beautiful Indian Wedding Reception Inspired outfits.

WHAT IS NON STOP BHANGRA?



Featured monthly at Public Works in San Francisco, 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 -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.
