Everyone’s family in Slo ‘Mo’s house! Join us for our second annual celebration of LGBTQ Pride at the Promontory, with partial proceeds again supporting Hyde Park’s social justice organization Affinity Community Services. Hosted by Kristen Kaza with sets by DJs Tess & Audio Jack, this Satellite Slo ‘Mo will feature a special tribute to musical ancestors we love who have moved onto the next dimension, including Prince, David Bowie, Maurice White, Aaliyah, Teena Marie, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson and more, in addition to other R&B favorites from the 70s to today. This party is about honoring our past, celebrating in the present and supporting our future!
