When DJ SouL SISTER THROWS A DANCE PARTY, it’s the stuff of legends. As New Orleans’ favorite “rare groove” excavator, her New Year’s Eve parties have been a longstanding tradition in the city. This year, for the 20th edition of Soul Sister’s NYE bash, she’s taking over Civic Theatre for a soul train shindig you won’t want to miss.

Soul Sister, known worldwide as the “queen of rare groove,” has been a crate digger and vinyl collector ever since she was six years old. As a veteran radio programmer on WWOZ FM New Orleans for more than 25 years, she is the host and founder of the popular “Soul Power,” the longest-running rare groove radio show in the U.S. As a vinyl DJ, she mixes retro funk, R&B, soul, and disco with total ease, keeping you dancing all night long.
