Tonight’s party, Shake! An All 45 RPM Party You Can Move To is a safe space where people of all races, creeds, religion, and sexes can come to hear great music. DJ Prestige and DJ Monk One provide an eclectic array of deep funk, proto disco, disco rap, and other funky delicacies on vinyl for you to get down to. With the recent passing of legend David Mancuso, and the soul great Sharon Jones, we are dedicating the party to both of them and the spirit they embody. As Monk One stated:
“Come together in a safe and welcoming space to let loose and celebrate the lives and energy of some of the great ones we lost this past week, consider joining us tonight as we pay tribute by championing the things David and Sharon did — transcendence and catharsis through music and dance, and sureshot motherfunkin’ grooves.”
This is what this party is all about. Come as you are, dance like no one is watching, and enjoy some music that reveals the true New York City. We may be from different backgrounds, but we are all one as we come together with this music. As usual, G Man is on the mic, taking us all on a fantastic voyage through these feel good classics. It’s a free party, so join us, won’t you?
