DJ Mark Kamins remembered tonight at NYC tribute party (KONK reuniting)

Mark Kamins

The celebration of Mark Kamins’ life and times culminates at Santos Party House tonight. Konk will perform for the first time since 1986. Lady Miss Kier of Dee-Lite fame, as well. Coati Mundi, Crystal Ark, and a ton of other performers will crowd both floors of the club that most resembles the old- school type clubs where most of these folks did their thing …in days of yore. A zillion DJs including Jellybean Benitez and Justin Strauss and Mike Pickering and Stretch Armstrong and Ivan Ivan and Jazzy Nice and and and…. will make musical statements about the man we and thousands of others loved. I will MC along with Jim Fouratt, Chi Chi Valenti, Michael Holman, and and and. Proceeds of the event will go to the Mark Kamins Scholarship Award in Electronic Music. Walter Durkacz is the puppeteer pulling all the strings that make this sort of thing happen. Not an easy gig. [Steven Lewis]

When Mark Kamins passed on to another plane earlier this year, he clearly left a large impact on the community. That community is banding together to celebrate his life and legacy tonight (4/17) at Santos Party House as part of “Mark & Cetra: A Pow Wow of Everybody in Celebration of DJ Mark Kamins.” And they do mean “everybody”.

This massive, two floor celebration will feature an almost endless number of legendary DJ talent like Jellybean Benitez, John Robie, Justin Strauss, Mike Pickering, Stretch Armstrong, Lady Miss Kier (Dee-Lite) and many more, as well as live band performances from names like KONK (doing their first show since 1986), Crystal Ark, Nomi Ruiz, Coati Mundi, Strafe and others.

Tickets are still available, with all proceeds going toward the Mark Kamins Scholarship for Electronic Music. Full schedule of events is below.
