For two years now, Secret SOUL Club — DJs Antoine Henderson, Tom Dechristofaro and David Petrovich — have thrown wild monthly parties that show off their good taste in music, “We strive to hunt down records that really sizzle and have that intangible quality that sticks in your head and makes the dancefloor go bananas” is how the group puts it in a press release. The sets feature “original vinyl pressings” of both new and old 45 rpm singles. “These records were often overlooked or had limited regional distribution, so many dancers are hearing them for the first time, which is a really unique and memorable experience in this "digital" age.” The monthly events also include “crazy dance contests” during which celebrity judges distribute prizes donated by local businesses. From 10 p.m. until the bar closes on Friday, May 30, the group celebrates its two-year anniversary with a special show at the Five O’Clock Lounge in Lakewood.
