The Desert Soul Club is Palm Springs’ monthly mod / soul / funk dance party, bringing the True Sounds of Mod to the low desert. Created by DJ Bobby California and “DJ Lee” Joseph, the heart and soul of the Club is based on irresistible dance grooves from a universe of wonderful hit and unknown records produced during the r&b, beat, mod, Motown, heyday of the early to mid-60s, extending through the funk era of the late 60s and early 70s up to the dawn of disco. Northern soul, freakbeat, boogaloo, afrobeat, and psychedelic soul will all be represented from Memphis, Chicago, New Orleans, Philly, Europe and beyond. Bobby and Lee dig deep into their knowledge and cache of globe-spanning tracks, inviting you to stomp, shout and work it on out!
