DJ Marques Wyatt, the P.L.U.R. (Peace, Love, Unity & Respect) Pioneer is back on Maui! He’ll be arriving on Maui straight from Burning Man’s playa, burning with inspiration for an awesome night out on the dance floor with Maui’s house music heads. Here’s 5 reasons why you should be there.
#1 Marques Loves Maui
DJ Marques Wyatt has told me that every time he’s on flight to Maui he has a heart opening experience. Once here, his whole being shifts. He’s also a vegan that loves Maui grown foods! Attend the show, throw him a shaka, send him a wink, give him a hug, and feel his lovingly infectious vibes for yourself.
Not sure what P.L.U.R. means? House music is more than a genre, it’s a culture that embodies the idea of peace, love, unity and respect (P.L.U.R.) in unison. Wyatt is one of the founders of this house music ethos that started at underground clubs and raves before it became mainstream. Back in the day, legendary veteran disc jockey’s like ’Godfather of House’ Frankie Knuckles (Rest in Love), Tony Humphries, David Morales, Louie Vega and more set the stage for this community to flourish. P.L.U.R. a set of principles that is still relevant today. Naturally, those that love house music are ambassadors of this genre. Whether they’ve been raving since the late 80s, early 90s, or are newer to the scene, the room is going to be full of LOVE and positive vibrations.
#3 Giveaways & Safe Sex
‘Love is Love’ happens on Maui every day! Everyone loves free swag! The first 30 people through the door will receive some special gifts.
#4 See Maui’s Best Female Bartender in Action
MauiTime Weekly readers voted Marlena Ramirez as the winner for the ‘2018 Best Female Bartender on Maui’ award. Come see why! She will be mixing super libations and keeping the P.L.U.R. vibes chill.
#5 House Helps Homelessness
The event at The Dirty Monkey is a partial fundraiser for DEEP Cares. Wyatt founded DEEP Cares to raise money for homelessness and people in need in 2014. He says, “We did fundraisers for Standing Rock, Puerto Rico, Mexico, Toy Drives for The Children’s Hospital of L.A., the Northern and Southern California Wildfires, and recently became one of the sponsors for The Skid Row Carnival of Love; an event for the homeless here in Downtown, L.A. Currently, we are en route to making our philanthropic branch of DEEP (DEEP Cares) an official non-profit.”
