Afrolicious has established itself as both one of the most legendary weekly parties in San Francisco, and
as one of the top live/electronic bands on the scene. Afrolicious began as a weekly dance party featuring DJ’s and brothers Pleasuremaker and Señor Oz alongside percussionists, MC’s and horn players, and an amazing crowd from day one. Over the years it has evolved as founding DJ/Producer Pleasuremaker (Joe McGuire) alongside brother Señor Oz (Oz McGuire)
collaborated with some of the most exciting personalities in the Bay Area music scene and started writing original music under the alias Afrolicious.
Around 2010 the live Pleasuremaker band started including some of this new ‘Afrolicious’ material and added more of the percussionists and vocalists from the weekly party to form what is now the Afrolicious band. Between their weekly party and sound system shows that involve the brothers DJing alongside live percussion, they also have a 8-12 piece live band that emphasizes the organic elements, instrumentation, and energy of a live ensemble combined with club heavy beats and textures the weekly party has come to be known for.
