Legendary New York House Music Night Visits Hollywood

Body and Soul was one the country's most regarded house music affairs. With tunes spun by a legendary trio of house DJs, each individually renowned -- Francois Kevorkian, Joe Claussell, and Danny Krivit -- Body and Soul was a day of global rhythms from disco to techno. Literally a day -- this weekly was from Sunday afternoon to Sunday evening. The trio no longer does it weekly (a few times a year in NYC,) which truly makes each occasion that much more special. The second ever Los Angeles entry into the limited Body and Soul tour diary takes place this Saturday, from 9 p.m. - 3 a.m., at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip.
