Take some Latin percussion and add some old-school funk. Mix in a little reggae and R & B, and you have the recipe for the music you’re hearing now, performed by a Bay Area band named Vinyl. Vinyl’s musical mix-up provides the audience with plenty of fuel to dance -- and dance some more.  

Vinyl performs on Saturday, July 26th at the Boom Boom Room on Fillmore Street in San Francisco. They start about 9:30pm.
