The spirit of The Paradise Garage will be resurrected at our club on Sunday 27th November, in support of charity, Gay Men's Health Crisis



As one final treat before A Night In Paradise takes over our club this Sunday, we've got a never-before-released interview with Larry Levan and Jellybean Benitez. First broadcast in March of 1981 on WLIB Radio, the tape hasn't been heard for over 15 years. In it Larry discusses his transition from lighting guy to DJ and his deep love of music. Jellybean Benitez is one of the acts who will be taking to the decks on Sunday, alongside David DePino & Joey Llanos, Paul 'Trouble' Anderson, CJ Mackintosh, Jazzy M, Terry Farley and Ministry of Sound founder, Justin Berkmann.
