The night was perfect for one of the best R&B Dance Cruises in New York City. Located in Pier 40 at Chelsea Piers, the HornBlower Infinity is a great ship for an R&B dance party. We arrived early, the crowd was waiting patiently to board the ship and party to the Dance Cruise of the summer. The dancing soulful cruise ship; cruises around New York Harbor with night views of the city, the Statue of Liberty and a whole lot more. There is something about cruising around New York Harbor with great music, good food, great people and thirst quenching beverages. It was just a wonderful evening of fun and relaxation .
This year’s Rhythm Revue was hosted by WBGO’s (88.3 FM ) Felix Hernandez. Hernandez has been inspiring rooms full of strangers and friends alike to come together and let loose while dancing the night away. “In 1986, Felix Hernandez introduced Rhythm Revue, New York’s first radio show dedicated to exclusively classic soul and R&B. It premiered on 88.3FM WBGO radio, and also aired on New York stations WTJM (Jammin’ 105, 1999-2002) and WRKS (98.7 KISS-FM, 2002-2012) “.
” In 1991, Hernandez did his first Rhythm Revue Dance Party at Tramps in New York City. The party outgrew Tramps and moved to the Roseland Ballroom in 1992, where it was held for over two decades, up to ten times a year. His unique mix of classic soul, disco, and funk consistently draws a crowd of 2,500 to 3,500 dancers per event, playing in such venues as the Best Buy Theater, Irving Plaza, Highline Ballroom, Hammerstein Ballroom, B.B. King’s, NJPAC, and the Terrace Ballroom, among others”. Felix Hernandez’s Rhythm Revue radio show is now in its 29th year on New York radio. Heard every Saturday from 10am-2pm on WBGO-FM” .
We are getting our dancing shoes ready for next years Rhythm Revue so we can rock the boat again. Loved it, Loved it !
