About DJ Misbehaviour:
Born in London now based in NYC, Misbehaviour has been rocking parties across the Globe since 1989 and makes seasonal appearances at Afro Punk Festival, New York Summer Stage, Art Basel Miami and many more. She was just profiled in the "Sunday Routine" column of The New York Times here.

About DJ Shakey
DJ Shakey has been a fixture in the NYC nightlife scene for over 20 years having played every kind of venue from big clubs to museums to dive bars to warehouses. She created and directs Shakey's Record Fair and has a personal collection of over 10,000 vinyl recordings. She was listed as one of New York’s “Top Ten Event DJs” in Bizbash Magazine for event planners. 

About Vinyl Nights:
Dance to the hits that shaped NYC club culture with native New Yorkers, artists, and music lovers. Disco, Funk & Soul, House, boogie, latin, & '80s & '90s hip hop. All on Vinyl. It's a celebration of "Everything New York" produced by Rebecca Lynn.

About ThrillerNYC:
Since 2004, ThrillerNYC has celebrated a combined love of gore and Michael Jackson by performing the infamous Thriller dance in the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade. In their words: "We are between 17 and a million years old, and our dance experience ranges from novice to professional. We eat brains, grrrrrrrrrowl and bite, but most importantly, we boogie. This Halloween, leave your mundane human life behind and transform into a rotting, dancing cadaver. After studio rehearsals, outdoor practices in Central Park, and zombie makeup lessons, you'll be hungering for brains in no time."
