Life on Long Island
DJ Boris coming back to LI
Celebrity DJs have always made stops to spin on Long Island, but few can offer the promise of a bigger party than Boris.
Boris (aka Boris Inzhin) was born in Russia, but is long-considered an NYC property due to his history of successfully working Manhattan’s mega-clubs, drawing thousands and thousands of people to his city events. Delivering dozens of intense sessions over a period of many years, he uses hard-pumping, anthem-like beats to create uplifting, energetic moments – and the results are undeniable, as he not only has a heavy following in our area, but regularly works both the national and international circuits as well. (In fact, his parties are often titled with the word “believe,” as in “Believe in Boris,” due to both past and anticipated successes.)
Long Island, like much of the globe, also has a long record of welcoming Boris -- and although some of the venues that once offered the capacity to feature an appearance by such a popular personality have closed over the past few years (such as the defunct GLO in Westbury and recently sold Neptune Beach Club in East Quogue), The Emporium in Patchogue – a 21,000-square-foot building able to hold more than 1,000 people – is still going strong, and will be bringing Boris in to play on Sunday, Jan. 19. (Of course, Sundays are not normally robust club nights, but many people will be off from work to mark Martin Luther King Jr. Day on Monday, Jan. 20.)
Tickets are available for $20 at ticketfly.com; age of admission is 21 and older. The party kicks off at 10 p.m.; dress to impress. For VIP table reservations call 631-275-6200; for more information check out The Emporium online at facebook.com/emporiumny and theemporiumny.com.
