From the Soundboard is usually a show that focuses on concerts regardless of genre. Artist and/or group perfecting the art of “call and response” with its audience. On February 11, we will give tribute in music and talk about dance for quite possibly the most important and influential nightlife party in the world (seriously that’s not an exaggeration), David Mancuso’s The Loft NYC.

“The Loft is the location for the first underground dance party (Love Saves the Day) that was created by David Mancuso on February 14, 1970, in New York City. Since then, the term The Loft has come to represent Mancuso’s own version of a non-commercial party where no alcohol, food, or beverages are sold. Mancuso’s vision of a private party is similar to, and inspired by the rent party and house party”.
