New York's Vibrant nightlife which puts us on the map as the capital of cool
Our DJ will bring you thumping tracks from hip hop and R&B jams, to glittery pop gems. There'll be classic and contemporary hits and an eclectic mix of Reggae, Soca and Makossa.. The playlist will actually cause you to explode into pure joy and body-moving ecstasy. We plan our events with you in mind. And hope that each experience is as memorable for you as the time and effort we put into it.. 

Lots of artist are spinning circles around each other when it comes to music genres we like but the names that make our event's list convinced and impressed us that they have mastered their craft. Their talent is stepping up the game in RnB, hiphop with hard-hitting lyricism, versatile beat making and rapid delivery. They mix a youthful hardcore energy with beats and lyrics. Our events bridge generations with an unapologetic voice of renouned speakers challenging generation X’ers Y, & Z. 

Soulful R&B, the golden age of hip hop and inspiring gospel certainly have a leg up for our event. And we always make room for our young artists, as their work mirrors this generations’ poetry expressive stream of consciousness story telling.

All are welcome to experience this event which will highlight events and people in the history of African diaspora. Dynamic speakers, some powerful praise and worship and a fun fellowship.

Everyone is encouraged to wear culturally influenced attire. If you don't have anything Afro-centric wear something that reflects your culture.
Our aim with events like Plugged In: African Diaspora and Friends Luncheon is to harness the potential of people of the African Diaspora by first alleviating the continuing battle for African Self Worth that is often found in segments of Africa and the African Diaspora.
