beat:repeat NYC Presents Episode 1 Peech Boys – Don’t Make Me Wait
beat:repeat NYC is a documentary series presented by Red Bull Music Academy paying tribute Larry Levan, NYC anthems and the drum machines that created them. Today, we present you with episode one featuring Peech Boys and “Don’t Make Me Wait.” Peech Boys are the first band to be birthed from the legendary Paradise Garage nightclub.
On May 11th, RBMA will be hosting The Larry Levan Street Party as part of a local initiative to rename King Street Larry Levan Way. On Sunday, a six hour street party will take place and will feature some of his biggest supporters who happen to be musicians who have work or collaborated with his work in the past: François Kevorkian, David Depino, Joey Llanos and some special guests will appear. And if you are not based in NY, you can stream the entire event on larrylevanway.org.
