NYC's Underground Network, Then & Now
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> >>>>>>>>>>>>

PLEASE READ NYC's Underground Network, Then & Now (Interview with Don Welch) on TRAXSOURCE

Some people say your parties were are important to Dance music as CBGBs was to punk rock, how do you feel about that?

I feel that is an honor to be compared to such a legendary venue like CBGBs. I agree that we were to House Music as they were to punk rock. They featured early performances by The Ramones, Blondie, Talking Heads, Misfits, Patti Smith Group, Joan Jett and many others. We featured early performances by Ten City, Cece Rodgers, Michael Watford, Barbara Tucker, Ultra Nate, La India, Joi Cardwell, Robert Owens, Cassio Ware, Cashmere & Dajae and many others. We showcased all the House artists new material working very closely with the record labels and producers as we introduced this music to people who didn’t know it. Now they are house heads for life. Our team promoted hard in the early days, before social media we had to take it to the streets. Flyers every week and our events were on Wednesday nights where a lot of naysayers said it would never work. The vibe was so strong we were packed (2 floors) every week at Sound Factory Bar.......
