The Freedom Party 5yr Anniversary Party

Another dope event scheduled for the 20th. Nice & Smooth is one of the livest acts I’ve ever seen. Hopefully, their set doesn’t get cut short due to the star-studded lineup. If I wasn’t starting a new job the next day (and if money wasn’t an issue), I would be either going to this show or hitting up that Ralph McDaniels extravaganza. WEAK! On the other hand, it’s only new employee orientation so…

The Freedom Party 5-Year Anniversary Bash
Live Performances By: Lisa Lisa, Chubb Rock, Nice & Smooth, Slick Rick and other special guests!!!!

Freedom: n – the condition of being free; the power to act or speak or think without externally imposed restraints;

As New Yorkers reminisce about the city’s golden era of nightlife, we remember a time when people went out to have fun, to dance and really enjoy themselves. Those nights on the town and the places we visited were our temples of worship, where people came together from different walks of life and let themselves go, rejoicing to the music. We missed the days when going to a party didn’t depend on who you knew to get in or how much money you had, and the best place to be was on the dance floor, not in VIP.


For the past 5 years, the Freedom Party has been doing just that, and has become the most successful long running event in NYC. Every week, we pack our house with the most positive, fun loving, high spirited, beautiful people in all of NYC and from around the globe. Whether from NYC or Tokyo, Miami or London, when they are in NYC, they experience Freedom.

Now, the Freedom party is celebrating its 5th anniversary of bringing soul back to the dance floor with its biggest and most energetic birthday bash yet—a jam packed evening of dancing, live performances, and the music of hip-hop, r&b, reggae, disco and funk for a great big celebration of the freedom of expression with no pretense.
