Life on Long Island
If it’s been a while since you've really cut loose on a dance floor – but were just waiting for the right opportunity – you may want to get yourself to LOVE on Friday, March 21 as Laidback Luke will be spinning at the Carle Place club starting after 11:30 p.m.
Also known as Lucas Cornelis van Scheppingen, he was born in Manila and raised in The Netherlands – but his global experiences continue...Read more »
Although the big pubs and nightclubs still count on standard stuff, underground sounds can be found on Long Island.
For the most part, LI venues that feature DJs still tend to stick to mainstream styles of music, (hip-hop, pop remixes, mash-ups and classic beats) but nights where the more unusual sorts of EDM spin (techno, dubstep, deep house and hard trance) exist as well – albeit with less...Read more »
Think of it as a “dining and disco” sort of doing as Coral House in Baldwin is hosting a bash that will provide both a sizable meal and a thorough dose of classic grooves.
Scheduled for Friday, Feb. 28, it’s being called “Decades of Dance,” and will feature four hours of live music (8 p.m.-midnight) from cover bands Disco Unlimited and Something Fresh, which should make for a solid evening...Read more »
Planning to head out for Valentine's Day, just you and your sweetie? If so, mature couples should keep in mind that the average lounge or pub is often dominated by wigwagging sweaty singles frequently “putting their hands up” as the DJ commands it to be so (for those yet to visit a nightclub, it’s not an uncommon occurrence) -- and for some twosomes, the notion of a romantic rendezvous backed by...Read more »
When it comes to Long Island’s nightlife, there’s no question that a part of the party scene belongs to a fairly mature set of fun-seekers
People that don't regularly head out in the evening for good times, dancing and social situations on LI may be under the impression that area pubs and clubs are solely full of twenty-somethings -- but in fact, there are a number of spots that count on the...Read more »
When it comes to electronic dance music (EDM), sometimes the big hits aren't always a draw for all of its enthusiasts.
For fans of conventional electronic dance (pop music remixes, contemporary house; think current Grammy winners Daft Punk), most clubs on Long Island offer nights featuring DJs that spin the sort of tracks heard on radio mixshows and other popular music outlets -- but there...Read more »
Looks like the North Shore is going to get a rare blast of electronic dance come mid-February.
There have always been clubs and lounges both along Jericho Turnpike and in the busy villages north of NY-25 (Port Washington, Huntington, Bayville, Port Jefferson, Greenport) that offer DJ parties and dance floor-filled gatherings -- but when it comes to the major clubs, arenas and venues that specialize...Read more »
It might not be as trendy as it was before Y2K, but modern swing is still a big thing for some people.
Inspired by the Big Band orchestra sound that served as major dance music for guys and gals during the 1930s and 1940s, swing music made a comeback during the 1990s — as artists such as Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Squirrel Nut Zippers and Massapequa-born Brian Setzer put out modern tunes inspired...Read more »
When looking at today’s casual nightlife fashion, it may seem strange to think that formal attire was once not just preferred, but required.
In 2014, a man doesn't need much more than a collared shirt to gain entry to most venues — and women can often get away with street clothes — but back when long-defunct Manhattan destinations like Toots Shor’s, El Morocco and the Stork Club set the tone...Read more »
Celebrity DJs have always made stops to spin on Long Island, but few can offer the promise of a bigger party than Boris.
Boris (aka Boris Inzhin) was born in Russia, but is long-considered an NYC property due to his history of successfully working Manhattan’s mega-clubs, drawing thousands and thousands of people to his city events. Delivering dozens of intense sessions over a period of many...Read more »
