Award for her work both inside and outside the music industry. Jerry Greenberg, who signed Sledge to both Atlantic Records with her sisters and to PEM, received the coveted Lifetime Achievement Award for his decades of handson shaping the music of generations.


Kathy Sledge




eleased on Pacific Electronic Music (PEM), the release marks 35 years since the original recording, which was produced by the ultra-hot Nile Rodgers. Sledge joining up with EDM pioneers the Aristofreeks is a natural fit in today’s electronic music scene, having sung lead on two of the most beloved, best-selling and worldwiderecognized dance songs ever produced (“We are Family” and “The Greatest Dancer”), her voice is instantly recognizable to music fans worldwide. Aristofreeks comprises DMC mixing championship finalist Max Martire and the internationally renowned

musical chameleon, Lenny Ibizarre. Both were at the forefront of the electronic movement in 1988, and then soon after had their first breakthroughs starting in Ibiza in 1991. Now, two of the most eclectic characters of the music history of Ibiza have united to form one of the most sought-after DJ/producing teams in the world. PEM launched its label at the 16th Annual DJ Awards in Ibiza this September 25 with a live showcase of The Aristofreeks and Sledge performing “We Are Family.” The Ibiza DJ Awards presented Kathy Sledge the prestigious Outstanding Contribution

With her sisters, Kathy Sledge sang lead on Sister Sledge’s hits “We Are Family,” “He’s the Greatest Dancer,” “Got to Love Somebody,” “Thinking of You,” “All American Girls,” “My Guy” and “B.Y.O.B. (Bring Your Own Baby),” among others. “We Are Family,” the title track of Sister Sledge’s third album, on Atlantic Records, had already received massive dance club and radio play when it was issued as a single, giving the group its first certified gold single hitting #1 R&B and #2 on the Billboard Hot 100 Singles Chart in summer 1979. The 1979 World Series-winning Pittsburgh Pirates and numerous other organizations adopted the track, and it became a standard tune for family reunions. The “We Are Family” LP went platinum, peaking at #3 in spring 1979. Sledge so far has recorded about six songs with the Aristofreeks, including remakes of some other Sister Sledge material. Chic cofounder Nile Rodgers, riding high on his recent Grammy Nominations with Daft Punk, has agreed to do a guest guitar appearance on the hot new single, “Keep It Movin’.”

What are you hoping to find under the Christmas tree this year? [laughs] Something big and shiny that doesn’t need batteries. Have you been naughty or nice? In 2013, I wanted to find a way to give back. I started working with amfAR’s generationCURE. I really believe in the organization and what they do, so it has felt good to be involved. It also reminds me that we need to be good and compassionate to ourselves, something a lot of us tend to forget. Give us one prediction for 2014. Hillary Clinton will announce her candidacy for president.

Aiden Leslie’s New Year


BY Bill Tietjen

2013 was a banner year for Aiden Leslie. He released his first collaboration with the all-dance music label D1 Music. He became an activist, partnering with AMFAR’s Generation Cure in their plight to raise awareness and accelerate the search for a cure for HIV/AIDS. And he found love. Unfortunately, he also lost it; but from its ashes rose Leslie’s latest single currently blazing up dance floors, “Nobody Said.”


hat was your biggest accomplishment this year? I’ve been fortunate this past year, playing huge cities around the country, meeting fans and creating new ones. Keeping a connection with my fans has always been

important for me. What was the biggest lesson learned? You cannot change anyone or anything but yourself. It begins with you. Everything else will fall into place. It’s a simple lesson, but when you learn it,

Are you open for love in 2014? Yes, I’m open to love, and I’m sure it’s coming my way. What do you hope to achieve in 2014? Many things! Right now, I’m working on a major event for charity that will be a big undertaking but incredibly rewarding. Also, in addition to my new releases and touring, I may be making my return to the theatre, which I’m very happy about. Are you making a New Year’s resolution for 2014? To be honest with you, I’ve never been a big believer in resolutions. I’m a work in progress, so for me, every day is a new resolution. But, I’m an organization freak, so I want to work on keeping that side of me in check. Also, I want to travel more and go to places I would never have dreamt of going until now.

The Monster has been given a new dress to wear so to speak. How does this make you feel? You mean like “Filling the Shoes” of some Tres’ Vintage frock?... a worn Valentino ... classic of course.


What can you tell us about The Monster that would surprise the public? Circa 1981: The Monster is currently the longest-running gay dance bar open seven nights a week - with its increasingly diverse clientele. Originally called EL CHICO, a flamenco supper club since 1930, then in the 1950s a Middle Eastern club named El Avram. An amazing legacy to follow. The Monster is a well-oiled machine. What goes into make that happen? Owning up, remaining under control. We are a “hands on” business with hard work, a genuine collaboration of family work ethic. Throughout the 32 years of being open, who has walked through its doors? Too many to name. The list remains priceless: film and stage stars, writers, lawyers, fashionistas, rich and not so famous! We welcome them all! What is The Monster most known for?

rankie C sits down with THE Monster Bar and Club owner Charlie Rice to honor the legendary establishment’s 32nd year of being Gay and Proud…

A Cheers-style bar, neighborhood institute with a fusion of every vibe, every scene, every physique, every taste. I’ve heard people say the drag queen with the longestrunning gig in New York City is Jesse Volt. Is this true? Jesse Volt is the ultimate pro: Always on time, no attitude, drama free and a genuine sweetheart. With the resurge happening at The Monster, what can you tell us that has been the most shocking? Connection seekers for real dialogue. People talking, dancing with each other. Would you say the establishment is a cornerstone in the community? We have been told that by our neighbors, and Senator Brad Hoylman concurs.

Where did the name come from? A turn-of-the-century woodcarved carousel creature from Coney Island. With social media playing a big part in our culture today, how has it changed the nightlife scene? With a business to run, one can’t spend the whole day tweeting and chatting on

Facebook. Technology has “de-personalized” the culture, yet The Monster proudly remains the connection to roots. We give cheers to those champions past!

the Village vortex. Keeping in mind for our patrons the relaxation and revelry from the everyday tension that seeps into our lives.

Tell us about your cocktails and why they are so special? Simply “DE-LISH” and booze so affordable, as Samantha might say on “Sex in the City.”

Happy Anniversary Monster Bar and Club. I crown you New York City’s Gayest Dance floor Seven Nights a week. Thank you for all the years of happiness that you’ve given the LGBTQ Community. Congratulations!

What do you look for when hiring DJs, drag queens and piano players? The humble talent potential that all artists cherish with The Monster providing the showcase. And the piano players are STELLAR! The memorabilia that covers The Monster walls is always changing. Why is that? Mixing it up: Showcasing the collection, love of beauty, culture, history. Picassos, Sicilian bronzes, Lalique chandeliers, framed posters. After all we are ITALIAN at heart! How many locations of The Monster were there and where were they located? Fire Island, Cherry Grove, Key West and Manhattan - 80 Grove Street, baby! I’ve been to The Monster on the night that DJs Lady Bunny, Johnny Dynell and Michael Formika Jones have played, and I have to say it was brilliant. Can you tell us how it makes you feel knowing you have the caliber of DJs spinning in your club? Love and gratitude. After all, it’s all about the vibe. They’re getting in sync with the inner club’s rhythms translates to the patrons. What are some of the parties one can find at The Monster? THE BIG SIX, surprise, surprise. Daniel Nardicio, Lady Bunny’s Sunday Tea Dance, Manster, Hot Rabbit, Tuesdays Retro Fix and Mondays Sabor Latino! As the Monster sets sail into 2014, what can we expect to see at The Monster Bar and Club? BIG crowds, big drinks, variety, entertainment. Our wellestablished hospitality will remain the cornerstone in

80 Grove St. New York, NY 10014 Best Always, Frankie C
