Funk Fridays are coming to the Lighthouse Lounge! Beginning Friday, August 5, from 7:30 p.m. to 2 a.m., Zuakolii Riddle, better known as Koolboy, will be the DJ for “Funk Fridays Dance and Drink Night.” They will be every first and third Friday of the month.

Koolboy and his longtime girlfriend, Booshie, moved to Canyon Lake in August 2015 and have become active in the community. They have four adult children.

Koolboy is a legend in the rap music industry, providing pollock dancing for rappers like Snoop Dog, DJ Quik and Suga Free. (Poplock is a form of urban dance originating in California in the late 1970s involving rhythmic contractions of the dancer’s muscles to accent the beat, usually performed to funk music.)

Koolboy and his pop lockin hip hop dance crew, Hoodbotic Puppets West Coast Poplockers, have traveled to every state across America, and have toured with some of the greatest rappers in the world.

Koolboy is a professional DJ, dance instructor, boxing instructor, personal fitness trainer and the creator of “Funk Fitness,” an exercise class he created in 2009 and has been teaching in Canyon Lake. He describes “Funk Fitness” as dancing and exercising to ‘70s and ‘80s funk music with simple but intense moves.
