Back in the 90s, I DJ-ed Psychedelic Thursdays in the Marlin Room at Webster Hall for many years. Week after week, thousands of people came to dance away all their problems of the world, and have a fantastic time. The room would get so hot and steamy, my vinyl would actually sweat to the point of getting warped! Hard to put into words the vibe we experienced every week, you just had to be there. Magical.
For years, regulars came back week after week, and I knew all their favorite songs. I learned how to turn hundreds of people dancing in a room into an intimate party, where everyone made friends with each other. It was a beautiful thing. At 4am, the dance floor would still be packed wall to wall, and I'd have to get on the mic and tell people that it was time to go home. But no matter what I said, they continued to dance till the lights came on. The staff at Webster Hall was one huge family, and they kept the energy over the top every night. I'm happy to say, many of us still keep in touch. It was a sad day for me, and all of NYC when the club closed, but I will always have my memories. Gerard brought me into Webster Hall to DJ back in the day, and he is the one who closed the door for the final time. The End. This five minute documentary is his story. Have a look. It's great!
Thrilled to share some really cool news today. As some of you know, I've been working on a few side projects when not DJ-ing, and I'll be sharing them as they come into fruition. Bruce Sudano is a fabulous singer-songwriter and has penned many a hit song in the past for Michael Jackson, his wife Donna Summer, Brooklyn Dreams, etc. He is also executive producer on the Broadway Play 'Summer'. He wrote a gorgeous song called 'Forbidden Fruit' and asked me to sing on it a few months back, and it came out beautiful. Last month we made the video. Here's the article and video debut today in Billboard.
