event description

We return March 3rd, with Ali Shaheed Muhammad from A Tribe Called Quest, for another night of dinner and dancing! To add a little extra heat to the evening we invite you to discover the fresh seasonal dishes of Napoli at Louie & Chan (upstairs), then shake off those calories downstairs on the dance floor with Ali and special guest DJ Tuckahoe.


Dinner served from 6pm to midnight, music in the basement from 8pm-1am.

DJ/Producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad is known around the world as one-third of the legendary hip hop group A Tribe Called Quest , but he began his musical career in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York. Ali then spent years DJ-ing parties in his Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood and recorded a slew of demos before co-founding Tribe in 1985 with Q-Tip, Phife Dawg, and Jarobi. Tribe, however, is just one representation of Ali's talent. He's worked with a wide range of artists, including Faith Evans, Mos Def, and D'Angelo, the last of whom he collaborated on the Grammy-nominated single, Brown Sugar, in 1995. In 1999 he co-founded the star trio Lucy Pearl, aligning with Dawn Robinson, formerly of En Vogue, and Raphael Saadiq, of Tony! Toni! Toné! Lucy Pearl fused funk, rock, R&B and hip-hop to create an organic, sexy sound that was unprecedented at the time and still unmatched today. The group's self-titled debut album produced the hits Don't Mess With My Man, and Dance Tonight, the latter nominated for a Grammy in the best vocal performance by a duo or group category.

Ali has also built up a solo career, beginning with his 2004 debut LP Shaheedulah and Stereotypes, featuring the dance song All Night. Ali keeps busy by performing as a DJ around the globe, reaching music fans of all types, each gig adding to the journey he started as an 8-year-old in Brooklyn.
