Spring is officially in the air and what better way to celebrate this beautiful season than with a colorful night on the Non Stop Bhangra dance floor. One of the most important days among the Punjabi community is the day of Vaisakhi, as it marks the arrival of the harvest season. It’s known as a day of Thanksgiving and Punjabi New Year, a time to express gratitude to mother earth and pray for prosperity in the future.  Vaisakhi is an auspicious time ushering in a period of vibrancy and colorful festivities where dances of Punjab come alive and the vibrant beat of Dhol Drums fill the air with beautiful rhythms that are passed down from generations, an essential part of the Punjabi culture.

As always, the night will begin with the ritual Bhangra dance lesson followed by beautiful dance performances with Dholrhythms Dance Company. To round out the night, NSB’s own DJ Jimmy Love, Rav-E, DJ Nix and special guest DJ GT will be on the one’s and two’s with bangin beats all night while accompanied by live dhol drumming with NSB’s dholie Pavit. Beyond sound and dance, Non Stop Bhangra caters to your eyes all night with visuals by DJ Amar and live painting by Marcus Murray, henna art by Ritual By Design while NSB photographer Odell Hussey captures the magic.

So much more than a club night, Non Stop Bhangra has truly turned into one of a kind cultural experiences only found in the Bay Area featuring one of the most eclectic crowds seen on a dance floor.  So come join the crew for another colorful and vibrant night with great music, friends, gratitude, happy vibes, and non stop dancing.
