“Sally Can’t Dance – Bowie Tribute, NYC WInter JazzFest, The Freedom Party, D.A.N.C.E w. Designer Drugs, The DollHouse Burlesque and MORE”

Hello friends,
As the entire world mourns the death of one of the most dynamic people to ever grace us, I too am feeling very sad with the passing of David Bowie. When I heard the news I found myself feeling extremely confused, asking “huh, wait, what? How could he be dead?!” like the rest of the world. I’ve danced to Bowie songs thousands of times and worked on countless Bowie themed / inspired parties such as Bowieball, Glamdammit, Motherf*cker, Rated X, Tiswas, Oh! You Pretty Things and Sally Can’t Dance, I seriously thought Bowie was immortal and will always be here forever. A man with such talent, creativity, originality, style, and tremendous influence all over the world, this is such a sad loss. R.I.P and thank you for all you have done. ‪#‎DavidBowie‬.

Bootie NYC Loves Bowie — Mashup tribute to David Bowie

We are shock and sadden by the sudden loss of one of the greatest artists and one of SHAW Promtion’s favorite icons. I have danced to thousands of Bowie songs and worked with countless Bowie themed / inspired parties such as Bowie Ball, Tiswas, Rated X, Motherfucker, Oh! You Pretty Things, and Sally Can’t Dance. Our partners at Bootie NYC mashup party is also a massive fan of David Bowie. A Plus D of Bootie Mashup put together Bootie Loves Bowie — Mashup tribute to David Bowie…

Bootie loves Bowie

“Anyone who knows Bootie knows that we — A Plus D — have always loved David Bowie. Hell, Adrian even owns a signed David Bowie poster. We’ve produced several David Bowie mashup shows at Bootie SF with local tribute band The First Church of the Sacred Silversexual, and — despite the unfortunate dearth of Bowie mashups — have still managed to sneak several into our DJ sets.

So it was devastating news to learn that one of our biggest musical heroes — and influences — died yesterday. While listening to dozens of Bowie songs in remembrance, we decided to pay tribute the only way Bootie knows how: by mashing him up!

Therefore, we are proud to present “Bootie Loves Bowie,” a 12-song compilation of our favorite David Bowie mashups and bootlegs.”

Bootie NYC Mashup, Best of 2015 Mixtape & bonus tracks of our favorite mashups of the year

Best of Bootie 2015 released!
Mixtape & bonus tracks of our favorite mashups of the year

“It seemed like it took FOREVER to get this year’s Best of Bootie 2015 done, but it’s finally compiled, mixed, and ready to share with the world – it’s our annual mixtape compilation of our favorite mashups and bootlegs of the past year, complete with 20 of the year’s best mashups, plus 10 bonus tracks.

As always, the main mixtape is all mega-mixed together so it fits on an old-school CD. It’s basically a 73-minute summary of an entire night at a Bootie party, from the build-up on the dance floor to the hands-up floor bangers to the drunken off-the-rails sing-alongs to the chilled-out come-down, to the slow jam at the end. Put it on for your own personal Bootie party!” ~ A+D of Bootie Mashup


Best of Bootie 2015

You can also download the tracks individually, unmixed, to mix and match into your own playlists, or grab the big 73-minute MP3 if you want the whole jam uninterrupted. We – A Plus D – curated and compiled the tracks, but a GIANT shout-out goes to Bootie Mashup 2015 M.V.P.’s Entyme, who not only mixed the whole thing, but also contributed an exclusive, never-before-released mashup of Adele’s “Hello,” which closes out the album in an epic fashion by paying homage to a 2004 classic from mashup legend Party Ben.

Of course, there’s plenty of bangers along the way courtesy of Bootie favorites DJs From Mars, DJ Schmolli, Shahar Varshal, and a bevy of others, including Bootie LA resident DJ ShyBoy and Bootie SF resident DJ Tripp.

“Happy NYE 2016: Justice, Holy Ghost!, Louisahhh!!, Tiki Disco, Son & Heirs, Glamdammit, Prohibition Masquerade Ball, Celestial Ball and MORE”


Hey Friends,
I hope everyone enjoyed their holidays so far and happy (almost) 2016! We had another great year thanks to the support of our newsletter readers, party goers, friends, family, clients, vendors, and last but not least, our street team, managers, and other staff. As some of you know, 2015 was also a big year in the SHAW family as I am now a new dad of a very cool son, Jarvis F. Shaw. Fatherhood is one of the most humbling and amazing feelings but it’s also extremely demanding especially juggling with work. I am grateful for SHAW Promotion more than ever as it presented me with the opportunity to work from my home office and spend as much time as I can with my family.

New Year’s Eve is such a crazy holiday for us New Yorkers with endless options to celebrate. We are fortunate to be working with so many great NYE parties as well as a big street team in Times Square with the Ball Drop for the second year in a row! I was recently invited as a guest speaker to the NYU Tisch building for some Q & As with the students in the Concert Management, Curating, and Touring & Marketing class. I met the founder of Jukely who was the other speaker and now we are thrilled to be working our first job with Jukley on one of their biggest events, JUSTICE on NYE, along with so many other great venues and talents including our new working relationship with Studio 299 and Pioneer Works.

JUSTICE NYC wild posting

Now it is now time for you to consider your party options and this is where we come in.  We have 9 NYE parties ranging from EDM, new wave, disco, glam rock, dance parties, burlesque and jazz, roots reggae, live bands, DJ’s, oh my! Check out all the events in this newsletter below, I hope you make the most of the final moments of the year. And if you’ve decided to sit at home and stay in by yourself or loved ones, make sure to take a moment to reflect on the bad things and be grateful of all the good things the year has brought you. Thank you all again for 2015, I am very much looking forward to what the new year brings!

Be safe, have a blast, enjoy your night and happy 2016!!!

About The Dance Cartel
Driven by pumping bass, glitter and dance theory in near-equal parts, this 90-minute, energy-busting experience is unlike any other show in the world. Part dance, part video installation, part DJ set and part concert, OnTheFloor is much more than a performance. The Huffington Post aptly dubs it “a crazy, communal, underground, energetic, messy, drunken, carnivalesque, silly, social, artistic, glittery, participatory, emotional, vibrant, bass pumping, choreographic EVENT.”

Over the past few years, The Dance Cartel has fine-tuned their all-inclusive ‘shake-it-like-you’ve-got-it’ philosophy and high-octane choreography in monthly shows at Ace Hotel NY. As the audiences have grown, they’ve appeared on Late Late Show, Conan and in videos with Yoko Ono and Reggie Watts. The Dance Cartel will be presenting an ALL STARS edition of ONTHEFLOOR at Le Poisson Rouge, featuring special guests Zuzuka Poderosa, Grace McLean, DJ Average Jo and more to be announced!
