Collectively, Prince and Michael Jackson helped define the early-'80s era of MTV, revolutionized both R&B and popular music, and influenced thousands of musicians worldwide. This party pays tribute to two of the greatest artists of our time.

The experience is presented by DJ Dave Paul who has successfully produced 300 of these events in over 30 cities (San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, Las Vegas, Detroit, Chicago, Washington DC, Philadelphia, New York etc.).

The music is far from the only thing happening at this party, there's theme dancing, a face-off between guests repping The Purple One or The King of Pop, and much, much more. This is the perfect night out to lounge with your friends, make some new friends, get your drink on and dance your @ss off.

"For THIRTEEN years now, Dave Paul (proprietor of hip-hop label Bomb Records) has hosted and DJ'ed at the brilliant "Prince vs. Michael Jackson" parties. As selections of hits, rarities, and remixes from both artists are presented over the course of the evening, audience members square off in funky battle, holding signs bearing the mug of their favored entertainer to judge which one is the true king of pop. This sure ain't the place for cynics, but Darling Nikki's and Dirty Diana's are all welcome to participate." - SF WEEKLY

what people are saying about the party:

"The Prince and Michael Jackson Experience is the place to be. For us epic PR&MJ fans it is our Prom and our Church. I always meet so many great people while dancing myself into a sweatier, happier person than I was before I came in. Free to be, P.Y.T. !!!" - Julie D.

"I remember going to this night and not only having the time of my life but seeing so many other people having the time of their life - and that's not an exaggeration. There is such a rare form of positive vibes across the audience. I recall even the most "acoustic & woodsy music loving/ lone wolf/ mainstream hating" of my friend circle reluctantly winding up at the Prince & MJ night with me one night a long time ago and 20 minutes into it running into him dancing his ass off with a drink in one hand and a random girl in the other." - Tim O.

"This was literally the most magical night of my life. I will never do this again because it will lessen the experience. I connected with my mother, my father, and complete strangers. I have never been so happy and so at peace. And no I'm not on drugs." - Asia S.

"great job last night. I love how when i come there i dance with the same "Strangers" from the last party" - Kandyce B.

"It's seriously the most fun I've EVER had at a club! The vibe is amazing, people are happy, and Dave is such a good DJ!" - Annette S.

"It is an amazing moment to turn around at any given time during the night to see fans singing along and feeling the music." - Trina F.

"We came. We drank. We danced. We laughed so hard we cried. We found the bathroom, waited ten minutes, and peed so we could comfortably laugh some more. We found the fan. We danced a lot more." - Danielle P.

"Had a wonderful time here last Saturday with my best friend at the Prince vs. Michael party. Was quite chill earlier, then got packed. Great vibe. The staff was equally great... the owner even gave my friend and I a free drink. The clientele was very hip and smiling, and positive. My friend said that one of the girls there she was dancing with offered to get her a drink. That is totally unusual, a straight girl offering another straight girl who she didn't even know a drink! " - Samantha M.

"I had a pretty damn good time. The energy was excellent on Saturday night...people were smiling and laughing and having fun. Girls weren't being catty and dudes weren't groping. Nor did it take forever to get a drink. It *was* insanely crowded, and believe me, I am *not* touchy person, but after awhile, I kind of felt that there was a camaraderie to it. It was cozy in a sort of "March of the Penguins" huddling-for-warmth kind of way." - Karen F.

"These are the BEST parties I have been to!!! the fact I waited in line did NOT matter. Had such a badass time, even if the heat got to me in the end. the best part??? I held the Prince impersonators guitar! shit like that never happens to me! rockstar!" - Claudia VM

"It's not just the music of the two great artists, it's the people and the fans who reflect them. And it all starts with the DJ bringing them all together. That's a good dude right there!" - Marco R.

"if anyone man... woman or elf doesn’t leave your party with at least 2 numbers (without REALLY trying) it has nothing to do with your playlist. Your parties are like Jr. High Summercamp. Erotic and yet somehow playful and innocent." - Jae G.

"This was one of the best DJ sets and crowds ever. Everyone was grooving with a smile on their face, very polite and some of the best dancing (seriously, that one guy near the DJ set is my hero), awesome background videos of Prince and Michael, and the best music (we can all agree). Not to mention, they had a PRINCE and TWO KINGS there. Much appreciated that people still enjoy really good music, know how to get down and have great manners too." - Lex W.
