If youre looking for some soul in downtown Phoenix, stroll into Carlys Bistro any Thursday night and hear some of the best soul dusties ever. Were talking Stevie, Curtis, Aretha, and a bunch of stuff youve probably never laid ears on.
DJ Rockledge, who creates a positive, party-like vibe inside of the chummy eatery, brings it all to you. Rockledge also stirs some of his record-spinning friends into the emcee mix -- youll probably lose your shit (in a good way) when his pals tend to play obscure soul 45s. Also, Carlys usually has drink specials such as $4 glasses of wine during traditional dinner hours or as a reverse happy hour deal to go along with the tuneage.
