Masquerade Party at Icon

Hot off the heels of Nick Lion's NYC club Icon's Night of 100 Marilyns, that Queens pleasuredome was hot again last night, despite the unusually cool August temperatures, as divine dance diva Masquerade was in the house. It was my pleasure to meet dance music's newest rising star who is signed to Inaya Day's new label, Ny-O-Dae Music, Inc.

I recently interviewed Miss Masquerade, so it was a thrill to meet her in person at Icon. http://djbuddybeaverhausen.blogspot.com/2014/08/the-diva-behind-mask-exclusive-q-with.html This lady is a triple threat of brains, beauty and talent as she later displayed when she performed with her two male dancers.

Masquerade opened her three-song set, after midnight, with her chart-climbing new dance number, "Higher," an energetic, makes-you-want-to-move tune, to an appreciative and very packed house. She followed it up with two splendidly rendered covers: Rihanna's "We Found Love (in a Hopeless Place), that I liked better than the original, in fact, and a sensational interpretation of Robin S's "Show Me Love." Kudos to Barbara Sobel for arranging for Masquerade's appearance last night.

Dj Ian Ford was dj'ing and truly sparked a disco inferno, as the party people packed the floor. And, as usual, Nick Lion was the most gracious host with the most.

Here are some pictures I took  of another fabulous, Iconic night:
