Mighty SF is proud to present the legendary NYC party Funtbox Featuring Tony Touch, Shortkut and Jayvi Velasco.
Funkbox is NYC’s premier Deep House weekly featuring Tony Touch and celebrity guests. On 10/14 they bring it across the country to Mighty!
Tony Touch came up out of the B-Boy hip hop scene of the 80s with his Urban Hispanic and Hip Hop fusion style. Toca is known for his legendary mix tapes like the original 50 MC’s parts 1, 2 and 3. Included in this series are some of the hottest artist in the game such as KRS ONE, Kool G Rap, Big Daddy Kane, Wyklef, M.O.P, Big L, Mos Def and many more all coming together for one collective piece. This along with the countless other mix tapes, Tony became recognized in the streets and industry as the real ‘Mix tape King’
Toca is also known to represent the Latino community to the fullest. It is the result of growing up with Salsa at home and Hip-Hop influence in his lifestyle. In 2005 Tony inked a deal with EMI records and revolutionized the game once more with his Latin album called “ReggaeTony”. The hit single, “Play that Song” featured Nina Sky and B- Real of Cypress Hill . The cd had an all star line up including Tego Calderon, Ivy Queen, Zion y Lennox, N.O.R.E, Voltio, and Soni just to name a few. The album went GOLD and with that success, EMI records moved quickly to release ReggaeTony 2 which featured more heavyweight appearances. To this date, Tony has sold over a million records worldwide.
