Certified Bananas Back in BK

Posted on Jul 18th, 2008 by Sammy Bananas

After too long, Certified Max and I will be throwing down like Bobby Flay this Saturday in Brooklyn. I think the last time we DJed together in New York was at The Rub last year, so you know this is special. The night is also doubling as the OFFICIAL Mad Fool’s Pre-Party (special guests???) to get you oiled for the Emeril-sized Central Park show on Sunday. BAM! Also, I figured I would extract THIS from its hiding place in my massive Summer of Sammy wrap-up post so that everyone can cop this Cert Bs classic.

Summer ‘O Sammy Tour Diary

Posted on Jun 24th, 2008 by Sammy Bananas


Sammy live @ LAX

I’m done with the tour! I decided to wait until the end to provide the wrap-up, but hopefully people will actually read this, because its kind of long! I’ll give a brief digest to start out so you know what your getting into:

- Summer of Sammy Tour = Serial Massacre i.e. Raging Success
- Cameos from Ayres, Alan and Eh’Life
- Run ins with border patrols, bikes and BEPs
- Triumphs of Celtics, Cesars and Cruisers
- Chilling with Diamonds, Daniels and Debonairs
- A mix classic gets re-released, this time for free

I’m gonna start off by saying that the main (if only) reason that I’m writing this blog is so that Certified Max can read it. I’m gonna lay this bro-love right out there in the open; Max and I have had some amazing times DJing around North America and I thought of him on innumerable occasions on this run. Hopefully at least he will read the whole thing!

That’s The Joint, That’s The Jam

Posted on Jun 19th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar


Sammy Bananas has two more dates left on his epic Summer Of Sammy trek, and promises a full tour diary as soon as he’s done, complete with tales of debauchery and Black Eyed Pea encounters (dude is a Kid Cudi fan, apparently!). Meanwhile, you can check Sammy in Chicago tonight (6.19) at Debonair Social Club and in Milwuakee on Saturday (6.21) at MOCT, and download the Summer Of Sammy mixtape if you haven’t already bowed down to it’s grandeur. “Rhythm Of The Night,” people!

Summer Of Sammy

Posted on Jun 10th, 2008 by Sammy Bananas

Summer of Sammy

We welcome Sammy Bananas to our list of blog contributors, as he checks in from his Brooklyn lair…

The Summer Solstice may be 10 days away, but as it was 99 degrees in NYC today I think we can safely say that the season has officially jumped off. And what better way to celebrate the start of summer than with…BANANAS! I’ll be traveling around over the next two weeks killing dancehalls in Vancouver, SF, LA, Chi and Milwaukee, and I made a mix for this Summer of Sammy tour. It features a heap of exclusive material, including the 4 tracks from my upcoming Braids & Fades EP (coming out soon!) Bump it on your way to the beach, while macking honey-dips, while wearing this, or sweating in your hot ass apartment. Mix link, tracklist and full tour dates after the jump!

This evening (Wed 5/28) you can check out our man Sammy Bananas at the Riverdeck in Philly (417 N. Columbus Blvd – RSVP here) rocking the “Block Party” party with the Philadelphyinz. Good times. If you prefer “buying things” to “nightlife” – hell, maybe like me you enjoy both! – Sammy’s High Top Fades is out now, and it’s sequel, Braids & Fades is on its way, along with these snazzy t-shirts.

Birthday Bananas

Posted on May 9th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

Check our man Sammy Bananas this Saturday at Savalas in Brooklyn, DJing with Caps of Caps N Jones. Sam will be dropping party favors like “All The Girls” (and joints off his forthcoming Fool’s Gold 12″) since the night also doubles as his birthday celebration. Go easy on the noogies (or don’t).
