DJ Fast will play TR!BECA in Dubai's JBR

Knowledge story, The Knowledge

He’s best known for being part of quintessential New York band the Fun Lovin’ Criminals so it makes sense DJ Fast is staging the first international artist performance at TR!BECA.

The music star – real name Brian Fast Leiser - began spinning discs in 1985 and has produced and composed music for a number of films and TV shows so the new lifestyle spot in Jumeirah Beach Road is honoured to have him hit the decks on Thursday.

Fans can catch him at the venue on 26 February at the gathering where doors open at 7pm. Tickets can’t be purchased for this event however organisers recommend prior reservations.

DJ Fast is one of the founding members of his band with Huey Morgan, which began 1993, now with Frank Benibi forming their trio, past members include Steve Borgovini and Maxwell Jayson.

The multi-instrumentalist – he plays bass, keyboards, harmonica, and the trumpet - is known for his unique approach to spinning, with flexible and eclectic sounds ranging from rock to hip hop to funk.

Perhaps that’s why he’s been asked to provide the sounds for many a prestigious event including the Monaco Formula 1, Cannes Film Festival, Harley Davidson, Crazy Bear Group and LDV Hospitality venues. At the moment he plays The Rum Kitchen in London, every Friday night.

For those attending on Thursday, TR!BECA is offering 50% discount on food and house drinks until the end of February to celebrate their launch.

The new restaurant and bar will be featuring healthy and organic food and alcoholic beverage options, local entertainment and hosts an artistic platform for upcoming talent.

With an indoor and outdoor capacity of more than 400 people, TR!BECA is located on the first floor of the Ocean View Hotel, The Walk in Jumeirah Beach Residences. Their kitchen is run by award-winning Chef Giovanni De Ambrosis, serving Mediterranean and American Contemporary Cuisine so there’s plenty of reason for everyone to visit.
