Collectively, Prince and Michael Jackson helped define the early-'80s era of MTV, revolutionized both R&B and popular music, and influenced thousands of musicians worldwide.
Prince and Michael Jackson fans celebrate on the dance floor as DJ Dave Paul mixes album cuts, remixes, rare tracks and hits from the two artists as well as songs by such ancillary acts as Sheila E., The Jackson 5, The Time and Janet Jackson. The music is far from the only thing happening at this party, there's theme dancing, a face-off between guests repping The Purple One or The King of Pop, and much, much more. This is the perfect night out to lounge with your friends, make some new friends, get your drink on, dance your @ss off and have the time of your life. The experience is presented by DJ Dave Paul who has successfully produced over 250 of these events in over 30 cities (San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Portland, Las Vegas, Detroit, Chicago, Washington DC, Philadelphia, New York etc.).
"For TWELVE years now, Dave Paul (proprietor of hip-hop label Bomb Records) has hosted and DJ'ed at the brilliant "Prince vs. Michael Jackson" parties. As selections of hits, rarities, and remixes from both artists are presented over the course of the evening, audience members square off in funky battle, holding signs bearing the mug of their favored entertainer to judge which one is the true king of pop. This sure ain't the place for cynics, but Darling Nikki's and Dirty Diana's are all welcome to participate." - SF WEEKLY
