Join The Freedom Dance Party as they celebrate 10 years of weekly parties with a huge live performance with Funk and R&B legend, Cameo!

The Freedom Dance Party is the longest running, weekly, Friday-night party in NYC history. Winner of Papermag's highly coveted award for “Best Party (People's Choice)” and runner up in URB magazine's “Best Party” (nationwide), Freedom was created in 2003 by Herbert Holler, DJ Cosi and Marc Smooth to provide a party for people from all walks of life to dance and be free. Today, it is a bona fide nightlife institution and takes place at Le Poisson Rouge. Playing an incredible mix of danceable, soulful hits from the 60s through today, including Rap, House, Disco, R&B classics, Rock, Reggae, 80s, Electronica, Latin, Afrobeat and more, Freedom continues to fill its dance floor each week with fun, beautiful people from all over the globe looking to have an unforgettable, true NYC party experience.

Selling more than 17 million albums worldwide, Cameo is one of the most popular Funk/Rock and Soul bands of its era.  For nearly four decades, Cameo has maintained its core funkiness and has been churning out trailblazing hits that have permanently marked major turning points in music and set the standard that many have tried to duplicate and follow.

As of April 27, Central Park's Bow Bridge is closed to the public for structural work and a fresh coat of paint. The work is expected to last three to four months. Removing the old paint will require wrapping the bridge in a tent-like structure to prevent debris from falling into the water. Along with repainting, the work will include replacing the wooden decking, fixing several beams on the underside of the span, and reinforcing approaches at either end.
Anticipated Completion: Summer 2015
