Since 1999 LSL has been rocking the boat in more ways than one creating the first soulful house music boat parties. Club culture got corporatized as a result of the resurrection of the cabaret law for gentrification purposed as the scene fell under attack by Mayor Gulliani. The boat offers an environment for our lovely conscientious party people with a purpose to find optimum enjoyment socializing, dancing and enjoying a truly diverse crowd unified by the music. Sign the petition this summer and contact your local council member to support the bill in play to abolish the cabaret law at http://LegalizeDance.org
Liquid Sound Lounge continues to support a very healthy addiction to infectious grooves of the soulful organic persuassion merging deep, funky, afro, groovy, techy, vocal, over the top soulful house aka 'Feel Good House Music'. And in turn connecting the communities of social dancing harkening to the roots of the scene from David Mancuso's 'Loft' to Nicky Siano's 'Gallery' to 'The Paradise Garage' and the list goes on.
