Body & SOUL was brought to life in 1996 by François K. and John Davis, it started as the Sunday afternoon party that took place at Club Vinyl in Manhattan’s Tribeca area. It soon became one of New York City’s most revered weekly parties. The three DJs, Danny Krivit, Joaquin ‘Joe’ Claussell and François K. delivered a unique soulful mix of organic and spiritual dance music grooves, and became standard-bearers for New York house music. On any given Sunday at Body&SOUL, people from all walks of life, all ages, all races, raised their hands in the air and celebrated the unifying force that brought them back week after week: the music. After Club Vinyl closed in 2002, they party didn’t stop it just became global.

Body & SOUL has performed around the U.S., Europe, Asia, and South America.What once started on a Sunday afternoon over 20 years ago has become legacy, a party that bridges generational gaps and transcends decades. We welcome you to experience the grooves, see you on the dance floor.

Body & SOUL is like a house party that got too big for someone’s living room, and we had to find a more appropriate venue for it.  An atmosphere like nothing else, a soulful experience where everyone is welcome regardless of age, sex, color or class.

Body & SOUL is an environment where people from all walks of life find common ground and create friendships. An opportunity to let one’s guard down and celebrate the most vibrant energy that music and dancing give us. We look to create an atmosphere where we can find inspiration, solace, celebrate our musical heritage, and expression in the form of a party that's meant to rejuvenate your body and soul.

Any party over the course of time develops its own identity. What makes Body & SOUL unique is that we feature a team of international renowned DJ’s informally performing a collaborative set together. We believe that dancing is a universal language; we strive to play a wide variety of different styles of music, new or old, without bias towards or against any specific format. The accent is on deep, soulful grooves with an uplifting message.
