A Funk Soul Dance Party will be at Grass Valley’s historic North Star House featuring Nevada funksters Mojo Green and Nevada City rising stars Kadija.

Mojo Green from Reno has become one of the premier funk and soul bands on the west coast.

Over the last two years Mojo Green has played over 200 shows taking their high energy, hard hitting, dance party to storied venues such as The Great American Music Hall, The Sierra Nevada Big Room, The Sweetwater Music Hall, Harlow’s in Sacramento, The Crystal Bay Club, and the historic Celebrity Showroom at the Reno Nugget.

Opening the show is Kadija — a musical duo including musician/producer Aja Salvatore and singer/songwriter Melike Konur. Their music is a combination of funk/soul/jazz heavily inundated with breakbeats and African rhythms.

Singer songwriter Melike Konur is a self proclaimed Afro-Turk spending the last five years reconnecting to her paternal homeland of Istanbul, Turkey. She also taps into the aching voices of her maternal lineage of West African ancestors.
