Tony Humphries has entertained dance music fans across the globe with his “Hump-in-the-Homefries” brand of uptempo soul music for many years now. This Brooklyn, New York native landed his first “professional” DJ gig at Manhattan’s posh Club El Morocco in 1975. From there Tony’s trek to Boystown a.k.a. Club Tribeca NY, NY would prove successful, where he was then recognized as a talented DJ.
 
In July 1981, producer Shep Pettibone asked Tony for a mastermix show tape to fill in for a no show on his KISS-FM NY radio show. A vacancy left by Pettibone at the station opened the door for his own permanent mix show. Simultaneously, schooled under the “I’ll-leave-you-in-the-booth-and-see-what-happens” antics of resident DJ Larry Patterson of NJ’s Club Zanzibar fame, resulted in him gaining “THE” residency in 1982.

Developing his creative experiences behind the recording studio’s control board only enhanced his style and magic. Artists like Mtume (Tony’s first gold record “Juicy Fruit”), Chaka Khan, Karen White, Regina Belle, Donna Summer, Jungle Brothers, Queen Latifah, and The Cover Girls were all governed by the “Humphries handicraft”.

By the mid to late 80’s, Tony became the sole helmsman weaving the tunes three nights a week, thus making dance music superstars out of local talent embedded in the heartland of Newark and her surrounding areas. Summoned across the Atlantic by the British in 1987. The “Jersey Sound” was coined by their press. In addition to traveling, remix projects mounting, pumping out a weekly radio mix show, and holding down the fort at the club, Tony was in his prime making the world of dance music exciting, hip, and refreshing.

By November 1990, his 8 year tenure ended with a tearful refrain, but this didn’t discourage Tony as he became in demand worldwide and relocated to London, England. In January of 1993, Tony took up the offer to be the resident jock at the Ministry of Sound club. That year was rounded off with a residency at “Echoes” in Rimini, Italy. This Italian residency continued for 4 years while simultaneously relocating back in NJ to launch his Yellorange Production Co.

It can be said that Tony Humphries has left an inerasable impression on the global dance music industry. To date over 300 venues he has gigged worldwide, done over 200 studio remixes, the latest being Janet Jackson’s hit “Together Again”. Throughout tremendous recognition, tons of awards and accolades from his peers, he has remained humble.
Indeed, the man... the music... the legend, Tony Humphries.
 
 
 
 
 
Unanimously considered the UK's "Godfather of House Music," 'Evil' Eddie Richards (aka Jolly Roger & Kode) needs no introduction.  From being one of the first to champion House music in England in the mid 80's with Mr. C of the Shamen fame, to building the London underground scene with Terry Francis and the 'Wiggle' parties, to starting the very first DJ agency, to his residencies at legendary London clubs Camden Palace and Fabric, Eddie has done it all and he continues to innovate.  Eddie has been included in virtually every book, documentary and film about dance culture and is sought after all over the world for his flawless mix of deep bass driven techno with soulful & tough house, a format he has always maintained, and has led him to be widely regarded as the pioneer of what is now known as 'tech-house'.  Eddie will make a rare San Francisco appearance at Mercer night club on Friday, July 18th 2014, a set not to be missed.  
 
Opening up for Eddie Richards is one of San Francisco's hometown favorites.  Who doesn't have a great memory etched into their consciousness of a Galen (Sunset Sound System) set.  From closing out Halloween boat parties, keeping dancers on the boat long after it returned to dock, to legendary camp-outs and namesake sunset parties, Galen is one of the most influential members of the San Francisco dance music community.  Truly defining the San Francisco sound, Sunset Sound System, with guidance from Galen has helped cement our city's standing as a global dance music mecca.  Galen's sound is sure to be the perfect introduction for a pioneer and innovator of the global scene like 'Evil' Eddie Richards.
 
As an added bonus, purchase of a ticket to this event will gain you access to see another one of the pioneers of House music, Tony Humphries as he closes out Mighty the same night, just a few short blocks away...  A 2 for 1 ticket package like no other in San Francisco!
