Most anybody with an interest in club land’s hallowed history knows Club Zanzibar. Located in a broken-down stretch of Newark, New Jersey, it was the spot where famed spinner Tony Humphries rose to fame. Some may be aware that the club – along with the Movin’ Records shop and label – helped spawn the sometimes raw but always soulful, gospel-infused subgenre of house known as the Jersey Sound. A few may even realize that while it took its cues from Manhattan, it stood apart, evolving a distinct identity to the hallowed dance halls of the big city. But only the most devoted nightlife historian knows the rich history of the influential – and, to those who were there, beloved – club, which ran from 1979 until the early ’90s.
