For Immediate Release:
House Music Royalty joins forces to raise over $18,000 for “Helping Hands For Puerto Rico” Benefit
For fans of house music, Tuesday October 10, 2017 won’t soon be forgotten. That was the day that Grammy Award winning Producer / DJ Louie Vega put together a line-up of 8 legendary New York City DJ’s that had never before all performed together in one show, all of whom are deeply rooted in the city’s vibrant club culture. To make it even more unique the event took place at New York’s premier nightlife venue Output, and included a vocal and keyboard performance from frequent Louie Vega collaborator Josh Milan.
While the event took place on a Tuesday, which is typically a slow night for DJ events, the turn- out was greater than anyone anticipated. New York’s premier promoters came together and donated their services, and all the talent performed on a gratis basis, with 100% of door revenue allocated to charity.
The final charitable contributions were as follows:
ROCKSTEADY FOR LIFE $7,325
PARA LA NATURALEZA $2,500
RED CROSS $6,000
CENTRO PARA PUERTO RICO $2,500
The talent line-up was as follows: Louie Vega
