At the birth of hip-hop and electro in Los Angeles, Uncle Jamm’s Army started out playing high school parties in the mid-’70s, and went on to become LA’s most popular dance promoters for over a decade. With an extensive and evolving crew of DJs including Dr. Funkenstein, Chris “the Glove” Taylor (also renowned as a DJ at breakdancing hub Club Radio), DJ Bobcat (Def Jam/Death Row), Arabian Prince and Egyptian Lover, and a pre-gangsta rap Ice-T on the mic, freaks of all styles and affiliations packed out their parties at huge venues like the Los Angeles Sports Arena. Along with the L.A. Dream Team and Uncle Jamm’s rivals from across town, Alonzo Williams’ World Class Wreckin’ Cru, these artists created a blueprint for electro and rap that continues to resonate in all forms of dance music today. Join us in the back lot of the former Skateland USA to celebrate their undeniable impact. Ice-T will also give a public talk prior to this show on October 28, speaking about his role as one of the dominant MCs of the era in Los Angeles.
