Love Is

 Here is a brilliant re-work Al Green's 70's classic "Love & Happiness from Nicholas of the Small World Disco Edits series.  Last night  I celebrated the New Year New York style by going to the event:  Keep On Dancin' Remembering Mel Cheren with the music of The Paradise Garage. A benefit party organized by Lifebeat, GMHC and Area at Santos Party House for AIDS/HIV prevention.  It was quite a party and a truly New York experience to be surrounded and dancing with many veteran Paradise Garage members. We danced to the wee hours to the classics and saw a great performance by Ten City's front man Byron Stingily who did an amazing renditions of "Devotion" and "That's The Way Love Is" and not to mention Sylvester's "Mighty Real".  The turn tables were manned by Jellybean Benitez, David Depino and Joey Llanos all great legendary DJ's that never fail to amaze.  "Love & Happiness" by First Choice brought the house down so here is another twist of that song that has taken Al Green's classic to new heights.  The night ended with the original version of left field dance classic "Voices Inside My Head" by The Police.   Love is and long live the Paradise Garage!
