5 reasons to go see DJ Marques Wyatt in Maui
DJ Marques Wyatt, the pioneer PLUR (Peace, Love, Unity & Respect) is back in Maui! He’ll be arriving in Maui straight from Burning Man’s playa, bursting with inspiration for a funky night on the dance floor with Maui’s house conductors. Here are 5 reasons why you should be there.
# 1 Brands love Maui
DJ Marques Wyatt told me that every time he flies to Maui he has a heart-opening experience. Once here, his whole being changes. He’s also a vegan who loves food grown in Maui! Take in the show, give it a shaka, give it a wink, give it a hug and feel its loving and infectious vibes for yourself.
# 2 Home-Education
Don’t know what PLUR means? House music is more than a genre, it is a culture that embodies the idea of peace, love, unity and respect (PLUR) in unison. Wyatt is one of the founders of this house music philosophy that started in underground clubs and raves before going mainstream. At the time, legendary veteran disc jockeys such as “Godfather of House” Frankie Knuckles (Rest in Love), Tony Humphries, David Morales, Louie Vega and others set the stage for this community to flourish. PLUR a set of principles still relevant today. Of course, those who love house are the ambassadors of this genre. Whether they’ve been raving since the late 80s, early 90s or more recent on the stage, the play will be full of LOVE and positive vibes.
# 3 Safe gifts and sex
“Love is Love” is happening in Maui everyday! Everyone loves free swag! The first 30 people to walk through the door will receive special gifts.
# 4 see Maui’s best female bartender in action
MauiTime Weekly readers have voted Marlena Ramirez as the winner of the “2018 Best Woman Bartender on Maui” award. Come see why! She will mix up some super libations and keep the PLUR vibes cool.
# 5 The house helps the homeless
The event at The Dirty Monkey is a partial fundraiser for DEEP Cares. Wyatt founded DEEP Cares to raise funds for the homeless and those in need in 2014. He says: became a sponsor of the Skid Row Carnival of Love; an event for the homeless here in downtown, LA Currently, we are in the process of making our philanthropic arm of DEEP (DEEP Cares) an official non-profit organization.
