Mambo Sauce Welcomes VH1 Soul to DC: Tabi Bonney directs video for the DC Anthem “Welcome to DC” which begins rotation on VH1 Soul 7.2.08!!!



The music video for “Welcome to DC”, DC’s hottest band Mambo Sauce’s latest single has just been accepted for airplay by VH1 Soul and is presently being submitted for consideration to MTV Jams, MTV2 and BET.
The video, directed by fellow DC superstar Tabi Bonney hits the small screen July 2nd, 2008 and the all - important release party/screening will be at the swanky Lotus Lounge, 1420 K Street NW, Washington, DC 20005 on Tuesday July 1st, 2008 from 8:00pm - 10:00pm.
The undisputed 2008 theme song for the city, “Welcome to DC” has received heavy airplay on both WPGC 95.5 and WKYS 93.9, and hit the Billboard Hip Hop/R&B Charts in January. It was also the official intro song for all Washington Wizards home games at the Verizon Center this season. It has already been the subject of multiple fan videos on YouTube and has even been added to the repertoire of marching bands ranging from Ballou High School to Howard University and the George Washington University Brass Band to name a few.

Comprised of seven of DC's most proficient, young musicians by Red C Records founder William “Malachai” Johns, Mambo Sauce has created a new form of music, "Pocket" that effectively blends DC Go - Go percussion with well crafted songs, explosive raps and sultry melodies. Put Go - Go music, Kanye West, No Doubt and Outkast in a blender. Blend until the top pops off, and that might scratch the surface of where Mambo Sauce is going. By incorporating elements of a variety of music ranging from Latin to Soul, Hip - Hop to Rock into their songs, Mambo Sauce puts their individual stamp on the genre. As one of the few Go - Go bands playing all original music, Mambo Sauce and their label Red C Records intend to use "Pocket" music, to infiltrate the international music market with the DC Go - Go sound.
