Calling all of my Boston, MA people! Tomorrow night we will be bringing a little slice of NYC to Beantown/ Cambridge at the famous Soulelujah party. This time, we are changing it up and will be dropping the deep funk/ disco vibes for the number one dance party in Boston. It’s an all forty five affair, so bring those dancing shoes and get ready to sweat until last call. These cats have been doing it STRONG since 2003, so you know it’s going to be a good time. If you are in the Boston area, we will be doing it disco this Saturday night March 25th, so come rock with us. Also on the bill is the ever reliable Claude Money and more, so if you like good, funky music, here’s your chance to sweat it out until the lights go on. See you on the dance floor.
Dropping a grip of 45 rpm gems tonight over at Donna Cocktail Club for their weekly Taco Tuesday night. I’ll be bringing some funk, soul, latin, boogie and reggae joints for the people. Good cocktails, great food, and good vibes in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. NYC stand up!

Jersey City let’s Get Funked! Back at it again at South House in the Pedestrian Plaza in Chilltown. All 45 rpm sets of deep funk, funky soul, original samples, breaks, boogie and more from DJ Prestige. Full menu and drink specials all night long. Come get funky with us on #NewarkAve.
This is a mix of tunes that would typically be played on my Wednesday night residency at bar belly in the Lower East Side of Manhattan in NYC. Bar Belly is an intimate space where I go from deep funk, to soul, Brazilian beats to instrumental early rap, original samples to dub reggae, and Latin boogaloo to garage rock, spinning for a crowd of music lovers and dancers who come for the vibe. The Wed. night features Pat Van Dyke and his trio getting the crowd warmed up with their brand of funky jazz and more, and then I take over with my funky little box of 45s to end the night. The mix was done live, all in one take, because you never get a second chance. Enjoy!

On February 10th in the Heights of Jersey City, DJ Prestige will be performing an all 45 set before, during, and after a live performance from bandleader Pat Van Dyke with a full band in The Parlour of Fox and Crow. This intimate space has been a hot spot for a minute, and the pairing of the band and DJ has consistently sold out quick, so get there early! PVD always assembles a top notch bunch of musicians to accompany him for this gig, so it’s not to be missed. Prestige will be dropping a variety of funky 45s for your ears, so swing through!

“DJ Prestige is a fine purveyor of funk, soul, jazz, hip hop, reggae and other assorted funky treats. When not preserving and promoting quality vinyl records, he is working like a mad scientist to make the perfect cup of coffee at home. He brings his version of the live mix tape to the lobby of Ace Hotel, where funky jazz, deep funk, raw soul, classic hip hop, real reggae, disco tracks, and drum breaks of all kinds make you move and groove like the park jams back in the day. It’s all about the vibe.”

It’s been about six years since I have DJed in Asbury Park proper, so I’m excited to be asked to drop a guest set over at The Asbury’s Tuesday night all vinyl Revolutions party. I’ll be bringing an eclectic bag of funk, soul, reggae, African, Brazilian, latin and other assorted funky 45s to the tables that evening. Hope to see some familiar faces out. Cheers.
