In association with Heineken and Red FM we are delighted to annouce the 2nd act as part of the DJ Series @ Havana Browns, Cork with Ireland’s finest DJ act Ivano Cafolla accompanied by saxophonist Chris Engel. Following the recent success of world renowned DJ Todd Terry on July 5th, the second leg of the DJ Series is sure to be a knockout.
One of Dublin’s most well-known and respected DJ’s, Ivano Cafolla’ s enigmatic style has lead to a number of residencies in Dublin’s most high profile venues. Ivano is synomonous with attracting an entourage of the who’s who in Dublin’s social scene and now he is coming to show the people of Cork what he is made of. With numerous musical accolades up his sleeve Ivano was short listed from hundreds of Irish DJ’s to play the dance tent for four years in a row at Ireland’s biggest music festival Oxygen. Having played beside a veritable A list of International DJ’s such as Bob Sinclar, David Guetta and Armand Van Helden to name a few, Ivano is certainly one of Ireland’s most sought after and high profile DJs. His reputation landed him international acclaim when he was approached by top UK promoters working out of the elite summer party spot Puerto Banus. Ivano has played at the top Marbella hotspots Niki Beach and the Ocean Club for four years including 4 new residencies under the Afterdark.ie guise this year. Ivano will be joined on the night by saxophonist Chris Engel, undoubtedly Ireland’s most exciting jazz act who quite simply has to be seen to be believed. The pair combine to create the funkiest infusion of house, funk and R&B and will definitely give the Cork crowds something they have never experienced.
Graham Barrett, Havana Browns Manager said “We wanted to get the hottest DJs into the club, and so the DJ Series @ Havana Browns was born which promises to bring the biggest and best names, both locally and internationally, to Cork. We are really excited to partner with Heineken for the DJ Series and following the recent success of international house DJ Todd Terry’s appearance on July 5th the DJ Series is proving to be a massive hit. On August 16th we will host DJ superstar Trevor Nelson but in the meantime we feel it is important not to overlook the huge array of high profile DJs here in Ireland and showcase home-grown talent as well as international names and are certain Cafolla and Engel will do just that.”
