For those who have no idea who Larry Levan is, he was a direct influence on House music, on modern club sound systems and on DJ techniques which are considered standard nowadays...essentially, dance music and so many genres that are influenced by it (e.g., today's pop, R&B, top 40 Hip Hop, dancier rock) have him to thank. On top of that, his parties at Paradise Garage served mainstream society's outcasts and helped define New York's famed downtown scene.
Supporters are now helping to

The Paradise Garage was his home which welcomed all who went there; and the street sign where the Garage once stood should now bear the name - LARRY LEVAN WAY
