With Gratitude.

A decade has passed while we were dancing. Looking back, we see a brilliant Technicolor collage of sound, movement, heart & soul. So many beautiful moments. We’ve seen dancers touch the sky. We've watched people fall in love. We've witnessed the birth of fine art. We’ve seen the music transport entire dancefloors to other worlds and back. We’ve seen the power of music. We are the power of music. 

To celebrate the milestone, AMP FIDDLER will be bringing his genius funk to the stage with a LIVE performance and freestyle session. He is the illest of all time and a very dear friend. We couldn’t think of a more fitting tribute for episode 113. 

WITH GRATITUDE we dedicate this party to you - our cherished family of DJs, musicians, singers, dancers, artists, chefs, musicheads, creators, activists, leaders, lovers, fighters, thinkers, dreamers, doers, healers, Goddesses and Gods. YOU are thePEOPLE and we couldn’t love you more if we tried. 

For the one hundred and thirteenth time, we invite you to come hold this space that we all created together. Thank you for this sanctuary. Thank you for ten years love & music.

thePeople started in November 2007 when some djs and music lovers realized a shared concern that the East Bay was overlooked as a taste making force. Oakland, with its history as a community of immigrants, transplants, leftists, same-gender-lovers, artists, and people of color, was an obvious place to create a gathering focused on creative community building through art and culture. thePeople quickly caught on and invigorated nightlife in the East Bay with fresh dance music, fresh energy, and by mixing music, with other creative strands from visual arts, to dance, fashion and food. Guest artists created live paintings and photo mosaics. Local activists registered voters. Local chefs sold tasty grub. All the while, the djs were dropping forward looking soulful tracks from across a spectrum of genres. You could hear cutting edge bass driven broken rhythms folded into Afrobeat or Brazilian flavored tracks. Of course the sounds of hip-hop, and the Caribbean would be heard. But the tracks always came from the influential rather than the derivative commercial end of the record crate. Oceans of dancers sweating until the lights came on became a regular occurrence. Meanwhile, world class urban dance artists of any style were conjuring ciphers and artisan vendors displayed their jewelry and t-shirts. But, the hallmark of the party may not be any of these things. It may be that most any night at thePeople you will see old friends and meet some new ones. 

thePeople takes place monthly, every 4th Saturday at The New Parish in Oakland, California, USA.
