ginnys historical image 150x150 Uptown Friday Night Highlights   January 11GINNY’S SUPPER CLUB – DJ Scence with mOma

Hailing from Queens, mOma is the embodiment of the versatile New York DJ. His sets consist of an agile blend of funk, soul, r&b, disco, house, hip-hop, reggae, world music and underground dance grooves all mixed with an equal share of classic jams, rare gems and modern day bangers. This unique diversity has seen him hold a wide spectrum of residencies, ranging from the esoteric (The Good Spot at 105 Rivington w/ DJ Stimulus, Special Delivery at APT w/ DJ Eleven, Hot Music at Submercer w/ Rok One & Jennifly, Redirekt at Cielo w/ Vikter Duplaix) to the more mainstream (Griffin, Gold Bar, Trump Soho). His current residencies – Friday nights at Ginny’s Supper Club / Red Rooster (Marcus Samuelsson’s Harlem hotspots) and a monthly Saturday daytime brunch party dubbed ‘Everyday People’ – have solidified his status as a local crowd favorite as well as the go-to guy for A-list celebrities to dance night away.
