Jackie 60

A typical weekly flyer which are now collectable items. 

Here is a homage to the last and  real best NYC Club experience of the last century, Jackie 60. It was begun in 1990 by local night life royalty Chi Chi Valenti and Johnny Dynell, choreographer Richard Move and fashion designer Kitty Boots. The club was heavy on the performance element with weekly original themes with a strict dress code and incredible MC's.  It was located in the Meat Packing District when it was still seedy and fabulous then later it became MOTHER.  I was lucky to experience this incredible club to the fullest from the mid '90s until it's sad closing in 1999.  Every Tuesday night was devoted to Jackie 60 delivering a wide spectrum of memorable, visceral and mesmerizing performances making a scene where the lines between guests and  performers were blurred both on and off stage.  To celebrate this golden age of clubbing here is "The Jackie Hustle" (Johnny D's Duelling MC Mix)  featuring the vocals by one of it's fabulous resident MC Paul Alexander and music by the legendary Johnny Dynell. "Legends Know No Code" Enjoy!
