PUTNEY — Next Stage Arts Project celebrates Leap Year 2020 with a full-tilt dance party starting at 7 p.m. on Feb. 29.
Brooklyn-based DJ Taj Campman will be spinning heavy dance tracks from his library, including a big collection of vinyl 45s he has painstakingly curated over the years.
Originally from southern Vermont, Campman is returning for this one-off Leap Year celebration at Next Stage. Tunes will include deep funk, familiar dance classics, hip-hop beats, and everything in between.
“We are very excited to have Taj coming up from NYC to spin records at Next Stage in celebration of the Leap Year and invite all to come out and dance,” Next Stage Executive Director Keith Marks said in a news release. “Keep our bodies young, our joints flexible, and our limbs warm. We invite young and old to come and get loose on the dance floor."
Taj and his collaborator Subtex have shared stages with hip-hop icons Jedi Mind Tricks, Sabac Red, Reef The Lost Cauze, Devin Da Dude, Large Professor, Canibus and many others.
This event is open to all and admission is by donation at the door (suggested amount: $15). Proceeds will directly benefit the Next Stage programming fund, and there will be food for sale as well as a beer and wine cash bar.
