Restart comes to XO Nightclub in August for the best night of funky disco and soulful house music with residents Ororo and Dingo8, plus special guest Kevin Bumpers.
Raised in Cleveland Ohio, Kevin’s music style was heavily influenced by his parents who would play Disco, Funk, Soul and R&B from the 70’s and 80’s during their family gatherings. He was 21 when he went to his first underground party and watched as the DJ worked the crowd into a frenzy with House Music. Being a DJ has become his passion ever since.
His sound continues to evolve with various house styles from vocal & soulful, jackin & funky, bumpy UKG 4×4, to deep & discofied. In 2012 he founded the monthly house night known as GrooveHaus Cleveland and hosts a weekly radio show called Groovehaus Sessions every Thursday night at 9 pm EST (2 am BST) on D3EP Radio Network. Once a month on Saturday night the house music faithful gather to hear international and local DJ’s dropping the best in funky and soulful house vibes.
Kevin has shared the decks with well know artists Dj Dan, DJ Spen, Todd Edwards, Kevin Saunderson, Tony Humphries, Todd Terry, Jask, Stacy Kidd, Scott Diaz, Czboogie, Trevor Lamont, and Chicago’s very own Dajae! His energy and style are infectious and when Kevin is doing his thing, the floor will be jumpin’! To Kevin, House Music is more than just a feeling—it’s a way of life!
Kevin will be joined by Restart residents, Ororo and Dingo8. No cover.
