This is not your garden variety day drinking party.
The Makossa Cookout began in 2010 as an intimate affair in a small Brooklyn, New York backyard. Since then, the party has enjoyed a rapid, organic growth, expanded to Los Angeles and is now a premier summer destination on both coasts. Makossa Cookouts features live DJs spinning a balanced mix of hip-hop, R&B, Latin, reggae, electronic, and dance music. It is their great ability to travel many genres, that has been their trademark and biggest appeal. Drinks, games, and a food menu featuring the best of what summertime has to offer rounds out the experience.
Join Makossa Cookout as they bring their party to Charlotte for a day of good music, good food and good vibes. There will be DJs from both Brooklyn and Los Angeles crews as well as Charlotte’s DJ Steel Wheel. Headlining the party will be DJ/hip-hop historian and legend Bobbito Garcia (Stretch & Bobito). Bring some friends and come ready to move.
DJ Bobbito Garcia is the critically acclaimed author of Where’d You Get Those? NYC’s Sneaker Culture: 1960-1987. As an award-winning filmmaker, Garcia has directed DOIN’ IT IN THE PARK: PICK-UP BASKETBALL, NYC and STRETCH AND BOBBITO: RADIO THAT CHANGED LIVES. Currently, “Kool Bob Love” is directing an autobiographical documentary film titled “ROCK RUBBER 45s,” while producing his b-ball tournament Full Court 21™ in four continents and co-hosting NPR’s “What’s Good With Stretch And Bobbito” podcast.
