Originally appearing in the final issue of Straight No Chaser, this article is a spotlight on The Shelter. The Shelter originally started as a one-off Paradise Garage reunion party in 1991, it immediately became a weekly party where dancers reigned. “The Maestro” Timmy Regisford provides a mix of house, disco, Afro-beat, and jazz to dancers who are ready to surrender to his mix. Andy Thomas talks to some of the dancers and dance music professionals who make Shelter their home.
