Promotional duo, Lorie & DJ Eman, started out throwing parties together in Manhattan’s LES, circa 1996, with Gee Fource at the Chameleon Lounge: an event featuring DJs playing everything to soul, funk, and breakbeats to Latin and house music. From there, they created Bang the Party – a deep, soulful house music dance party which would gain worldwide underground acclaim. Both events attracted an eclectic group of friends, music lovers, dancers and party people – both also featured visual artists painting live and exhibiting their work, adding to the inclusive, creative vibes. BTP ran from 1997-2003 held in various locations throughout Brooklyn and Manhattan, one of them being Opaline (85 Avenue A), which is the current site of DROM nightclub.
On Friday, September 11th, 2015 Lorie & Eman present an all-inclusive, double fam-jam for Gee Fource and Bang the Party, at DROM. This event is sure to be super fun; reuniting lots of old friends and welcoming new ones to participate in the creation of a good ol’ fashioned party. One night only! The talent lineup is composed of some incredible people who have participated in either or both Gee Fource and BTP – a blast from the past, and into the future!
