Without doubt the biggest electro party in New York city is Girls and Boys – the 2000+ people party that features some of the biggest and most cutting edge names in dance music such as MSTRKRFT, Justice, Simian Mobile Disco, Vitalic, A-Trak, Crookers, Bloody Beetroots, Boys Noize, Rusko, Neon Indian and many, many more. Every Friday for well over 4 years, the Grand Ballroom at Webster Hall has been transformed into a packed room of electro kids, hands in the air in appreciation of the throbbing distorted bass and electronic beats that have altered the landscape of dance music in America over the last few years.

FERRY CORSTEN

Producer. DJ. Pioneer. Innovator. Visionary. He’s the man that singlehandedly initiated a revolution in a dance musicgenre -one that’s long since touched everycorner of the globe. Having designed the Dutch trance sound, he propelled it into the clubbing consciousness and on further still into popular culture. From there he continues to innovate at every turn, working with vocalists as diverse as SimonLe Bon and Guru and has remixed music from some of the planet’s most enduring artists – U2, The Killers, Faithless, Moby and William Orbit among them. For 20 years he’s foreseen what club citizens want to dance to and as an artisan DJ/producer, delivered it. He’s released three artist albums under his own name (with a fourth ‘WKND’ scheduled for February 2012)and in doing so has captured the hearts and minds of legions of fans and scooped some of the world’s most prestigious music prizes along the way. He’s regularly ranked as one of the top 10DJs in the world, and of late has turned to charitable activities, working with the World Wildlife Fund.Yet through all this he’s still one of the most down-to-earth, two-feet-on-the-floor DJs you’ll find. He’s Ferry Corsten.

ALEX ENGLISH

Alex English has packed lots of music into a brief time, and the experience is paying off. She was best 18-and-under performer in the NJ Acoustic Music Awards, as well as a nominee for the Asbury Music Awards, and her confident, perfect vocals and original lyrics ‘blew one critic away.’ She started performing at the age of eight. By 12, she had amassed a respectable repertory of her own compositions. Her debut CD, Thank You, showcases her creative imagination and precocious grasp of the fundamentals. She is working on a second CD. Miss English has performed at many nearby clubs including The Saint, The Wonder Bar, and the Stone Pony. She has also ventured beyond her native Monmouth County to The Bitter End, The Living Room, Pianos, and many more in NYC. She has been a guest on radio stations where her songs are aired. Alex is an active member of her community, participating in numerous events adding to her profile of community service.
