A Night to Remembermarks the first time that Tony Okungbowa and Jojo Flores have worked together, however the two initially met in 2010 through a mutual friend. An identical passion and love for music had the two trading creative ideas and music throughout the night and a few months later Jojoflores invited Tony to play at his well-known Gotsoul party in Toronto. Following the party, the duo met with Cucuzzella who suggested using Unidisc Music’s catalogue to create what would become the aptly named, A Night to Remember.
“A Night to Remember was an opportunity to deliver a DJ playlist to a wider audience, music that we would listen to ourselves,” says Tony Okungbowa. “People always ask me, what kind of music do you listen to? What do you like? And this is it. This is the music I love.” Jojoflores continues, “This project was a journey through the past for us musically. When we added in France Joli’s “Gonna Get Over You” I was flushed with memories of growing up. It’s just such a good feeling, so uplifting. I hope our listeners will enjoy the record in the same way and that it will take them on a journey of their own.”
***-Tony is in constant demand to play at high profile events around the world, including Grammy’ parties, the ESPYs, Golden Globe events, Film Foundation Honors, People Magazine Emmy Party, Paper Magazine Beautiful People LA Party, Dreamwork’s The Night Before The Oscars, and many more.
