The Soul Clap and Dance-Off is not only New York Night Train’s biggest and most famous party, but one of the NYC underground’s more popular monthly nightlife institutions. The first all-soul night of subterranean maximum rock and soul DJ Mr. Jonathan Toubin, the concept is elegant – all night dancing to wild amazing 45s and a dance contest in the middle. The party has grown to sell out every month – draw nearly 500 paid patrons while remaining true to its DIY aesthetics – garnering acclaim in practically every NYC publication, featuring judges from every edge of music from Monotonix to MGMT – and now spreading around the world – from Calgary to Mexico to Israel.
