Event description
I.NY Festival Club | Block Party with Qool DJ Marv

About this Event

The Block Party is a classic, low-down, heartfelt, neighbourhood New York tradition. Shut both ends of the block, rack up barbeques, ice drinks, unfold furniture, wear little, set the decks and turn it up.

It’s where the members of a single community congregate, to observe an event of importance, or simply for mutual enjoyment. The name comes from the closing of a city block to traffic, so the people of that block can gather, can dance, can eat and drink together, be together. It’s a celebration. It’s a form of activism, and an artistic effort, reclaiming the street as a public space, a shared and joyous space.

The I.NY Block Party will take a gentler form - less racous-ness, more Sunday afternoon ease - when Qool Marv sets up in Mickey Martin’s brick lane to run through his 40-year collection of New York soul, funk, hip-hop & breaks, each record dropped in the spirit of the Block Party, the spirit of the community.

More About Qool DJ Marv

Since 1994, Marv has been producing mixed tapes/CD compilations that illuminate the many styles of music that he loves but have fallen short of major exposure and marketing. The series “Beats, Jazz, & Soul” and “Qool Classics” are adored by people from all walks of life from all over the globe. People enjoy the meticulous attention to the sequencing and the seamless continuity of the mixing. Qool DJ Marv has a way of introducing genre-defying songs to listeners who previously may have only preferred popular mainstream offerings. It’s Qool DJ Marv’s laid-back demeanor and the playfully enchanting smile that you first notice. He is genuinely pleased to meet you and despite his even keel, he’s bubbling at the thought of what he has in store for your listening, dancing, and celebratory pleasure. There’s an exuberant idealism in Marv’s appealing mix that bridges us all – with a universal vibe, everybody gets down.
