Herbert Holler has been a party producer, promoter and DJ for over 25 years. He’s played at the most notable lounges, bars and dance clubs in NYC nightlife history, from Wall Street to 125 th , from Brooklyn to the Bronx, not-to-mention guest spots across the globe, in cities like Tokyo, Venice and London. He’s also created the most legendary old-school dance party in world history, Herbert Holler’s Freedom Party®, voted “Best Party” by Papermag, Village Voice and URB (now in its 20 th year of parties, with over 1000 events to date, touching dance floors on a regular basis in New York and Philadelphia), My House™, a highly sought-after dancers’ destination for deep house music, and his latest production, Jams™, a new dance party centered around hits from the late-90s and 2000s.
Ejoe Wilson started dancing in the late 1970s when hip hop was exploding uptown in the south bronx. as a young teenager, Ejoe appeared in numerous music videos, winning the apollo theater 39’s amateur night competition four consecutive times and earning a place at nyc’s prestigious high school of music and the performing arts, then joined the burgeoning nyc house music/dance scene. One of the best-known of the house dancers, Ejoe is famous for wicked humor and dance savvy. With a smiling attitude of “no sweat, bro” he will mimic the challenger’s move, then twist it his way, transforming the others’ dancing into Ejoe’s move. A virtuosic house dancer, he demonstrates easy command of movement choices and the dynamic ebb and flow of his moves. A master rhythmist, Ejoe layers his tempos, tossing his body into the air then dropping to the floor and spiraling back up in multiple turns in non-stop motion, using smooth transitional steps to begin the next long phrase. As an early urban-street-dance teacher in japan, Ejoe introduced house to a predominantly hip hop-based Japanese community. Quickly he created a nationwide following, choreographing and dancing with japanese pop super-groups zoo, t.r.f, and Namie Amuro. one of the “principal” dancers for international superstar Mariah Carey in the 1990s, he also joined the elite force dance crew and later worked with will smith in major videos, “men in black” and &”getting jiggy wit it”; as well as opening the “soul train” 25th anniversary special, American music awards, MTV video music awards, and divas live. In 2002, he joined the cast in the off-broadway dance musical, stomp. He maintains an active teaching schedule today, reaching thousands of students worldwide, and hosting and deejaying nyc’s newest, most sought-after house-music-dance destination, “Ejoe’s house,” every wednesday at von.
