Back in 2003 I saw an opportunity in the under belly of NYC nightlife so I went to work, partied hard, and SHAW Promotion was born. We have won “Best Promoters” awards twice from Paper Magazine as well as Village Voice and L Magazine, and other publications. I have also had the pleasure to work with many great people, including my wife, JD, who use to throw parties with now infamous Mike Nouveau almost 12 years ago…
Fast forward more than a decade, JD and I are now parents to a 1 1/2 year old toddler named Jarvis. Combining our new passion of hanging with our son, our event production backgrounds, and marketing expertise, the concept for The Little People Party was born out of a genuine need for what we needed now in our lives…
“As new parents living in a not so huge apartment in North Brooklyn, husband and wife team Andy and JD quickly realized that Jarvis needed a larger indoor space for weekly socialization and play, and they needed to avoid going broke to accommodate him! The idea of meeting and mingling with other parents who also need a safe, stimulating, affordable, fully inclusive outlet for their children is the driving force behind each event.”
The Little People Party is already the fastest growing kids events at our normal weekly space. Starting Sunday, November 20, 2016, The Little People Party presents Brooklyn Bazaar Family Funhouse, a weekly event devoted to families at the new Greenpoint Brooklyn Bazaar every Sunday. (150 Greenpoint Avenue). The venue offers ping pong, mini golf, brunch by Brooklyn Star, arcade games, family-themed vendors, and two “The Little People Dance Party” upstairs in the large Concert Hall featuring a weekly 45 minute performance with rotating guest performers as well as ample time to run around the space, a safe environment for kids.
I hope some of you will join us for this new venture or please help us spread the word to other parent friends!

The Sounds Tix Giveaway, Thermals & Penguin Prison at BK Bazaar, FIXED 12th Anniversary, James Chance & The Contortions and MORE!
Hello New York City,
We had a newsletter set up yesterday, but after a long and devastating election night I just had to take the day off SHAW Promotion to recoup as we feel a lot of people compute. We have always been a part of NYC that celebrates diversity, forward thinking and tolerance and like many of you, we are shock at what is happening to our country right now. One thing that is becoming very clear to me is how grateful I feel to be surrounded by so many intelligent and compassionate friends, neighbors and family in the city I called home. Let’s keep being progressive, open minded, celebrating love and keep doing what we do, stand strong, party hard and treat everyone with respect. Things will be alright, we will carry on.
Let’s move along.
The Sounds, the Swedish indie rock band who was wildly popular in the early 00′ specifically in the NYC nightlife circle, are back playing 3 shows to celebrate their 10 year anniversary and we have free tickets for you! I have seen them twice and they put on a phenomenon show! We are giving away 2 tickets for each of The Sounds’ NY shows at Irving Plaza and Warsaw in Brooklyn, courtesy of Live Nation.
RSVP HERE to get yours!
Winner will be chosen at random, but a good story always wins.
Please check out the rest of the newsletter for all event details. That’s it for now, till next time, be good to each other and party on.
Andy Shaw and the SHAW Promotion team.
