Frankie Knuckles, the Godfather of House, at Vagabond this Saturday

Frankie Knuckles is hardly a man who needs introduction. The legendary

DJ/producer is a pivotal figure in the history of house music, having

begun his stellar career alongside Larry Levan in NYC and as resident DJ at the

Warehouse in '70s Chicago, back when house music was still an

experimental offshoot of disco. Not one to fade away into the past,

however, Frankie has managed to stay at the forefront of dance music

for three decades and his latest output, including a remix of Hercules

& Love Affair's "Blind" continues to command dancefloors worldwide.

Mr. Knuckles' performance is hosted by (who else?) Back Door Bamby, who

we can credit for bringing the gloriously decadent sounds of disco

house back to Miami since The Vagabond opened its doors last year.

Don't forget to arrive early so you can enjoy complimentary Belvedere

Vodka cocktails from 10 to 11 p.m.!

Frankie Knuckles at The Vagabond, Saturday, April 25, doors open at 10 p.m. 30 NE 14th Street, downtown Miami.
