"Every Friday Night at 11pm DJ Cosmo Q spins infectious swing-dance grooves and deals out a feel-good atmosphere at Lex 18 after the restaurant winds down from its usual prohibition era jazz supper club service. Cosmo Q’s musical selections take the swinging sounds of the 1920s and ’30s, turns them on their ear, and smuggles them into the 21st Century.
Having a passion for early-era swing and lounge music, it wasn’t until relocating to Asheville, NC that Cosmo Q created a new genre antique electronica house and step-beats blended with prohibition-era sounds of swing and gypsy jazz. Dancers love his infusion of occasional blues influences and a dash of the Balkans for flavoring."
Since the late 80s I have been crafting together all manner of musical genres flavored with thrift store treasures. I had the pleasure of playing for many dance floors in various nightclubs in Memphis, TN. My time in Asheville, NC diversified my tastes - discovering Electro-Swing and Balkan Beats - an inspiration from the thriving and playful Burlesque scene there.
My cocktails, as of late, have been of the Swing/Jet Setters ilk with a side of Electro-Gypsy and lathered with a blues and funk gravy. Swallow.
