Lady Miss Kier [NYC/Deee-Lite/DJ Set]
Lady Miss Kier is a legend of dance music and anybody that remembers the 90s. “Groove Is In The Heart” was a pop smash with a funky beat, paving the way for club music’s diverse and energetic presence over the rest of the decade. After dazzling as the fashionista front woman of her most famous band Deee-
Lite, she has collaborated with such greats as George Clinton, Bootsy Collins, and a Guy Called Gerard. Her DJ sets are lively, soulful, and most of all, a ton of FUN.
Stiffed Tea Dance DJs Dana Dub (Cuff/Eagle), Pavone (Bottom Forty) and guests will be keeping the disco vibes cracking on all dance floors.

TEA DANCE HISTORY:
"Through the 70s, gay men championed the uniform of the working class — t-shirts and denim — as fashion aesthetic. In part because they were affordable, and in part because it projected an appealing hypermasculinity associated with the working class. Gays in the post-Stonewall era were consciously rebelling against the effete stereotypes associated with the manicured, sweater-wearing, tea-drinking gays of the Fire Island set. Real men wore t-shirts and drank beer. Gay men still had afternoon/early evening dances — usually on Sundays, in order to make the most of one’s weekend while still being able to get up for Monday morning’s work."
