Teacher, jamster and respected L.A. musician Lonnie Marshall knows how to throw a nice and nutty party. Just ask his cohorts from Fishbone, Trulio Disgracias and Red Hot Chili Peppers, with whom he’s shared the stage for some memorable bashes, mashes and groove-driven madness over the years.
Now the bassist (who teaches at Flea’s Silver Lake Conservatory of Music) has a regular Friday-eve happening, and the whole family can get funky with him.
The weekly event at the Hanglider Bar at Rosalind’s Ethiopian Cafe features a live band, open mic and plenty of rug-cutting and booty-bumping.
Big-time musical guests have been popping in to get the funk out with Marshall and the gang, too. Dinner is available and we advise reserving a table — you’ll need the energy to keep up with these self-proclaimed “Mega Nutts.” Call (323) 936-2486 for dinner reservations.
