Radio Facts: playboy-logoPlayboy is continuing its 60th anniversary festivities in New York City by once again throwing one of the most exclusive parties in town during football's biggest weekend.The Playboy Party will take place at The Bud Light Hotel Lounge (Pier 86, 46th & 12th Avenue) on Friday, January 31, beginning at midnight. Celebrities, athletes, and VIP guests will enjoy music by dj Irie and a special live performance by Nelly and Friends during what promises to be one of the Big Apple's most talked about parties of the weekend.An invite-only group of partygoers will mingle with Playboy Playmates wearing traditional Bunny Costumes in a transformed space that both celebrates the magazine's 60-year history and incorporates themed elements from a variety of sponsors. In addition to title sponsor Bud Light, event sponsors include A&E Network (for season two of the hit series "Bates Motel," premiering March 3), HISTORY (promoting season two of its hit scripted series "VIKINGS," which debuts Thursday, February 27), MINI USA, Buffalo David Bitton, and Jean Paul Gaultier.Guests will enter the party through a "Bates Motel" themed check-in area and receive a pair of polarized sunglasses that, when worn inside, will offer a voyeuristic look into the "Bates Motel" on display. They'll continue on to a raised "VIKINGS" ice bar in the center of the party where they can enjoy drinks at large, communal tables outfitted with fur blankets while listening to music from a surprise opening dj presented by Buffalo David Bitton. Partygoers will also get a taste of Playboy's heritage when they escape through a facade designed to look like the original Playboy Club London on Park Lane. Once inside, they'll experience today's Playboy Club London complete with gaming tables where they can win chips redeemable for Playboy and MINI USA prizing. MINI will also take guests through the ages by featuring a 2000 Mini Classic "Final Edition" and the all new third generation MINI Hardtop (available in spring 2014) in this area.Last year's Playboy party in New Orleans featured a special performance by B.o.B and Trombone Shorty.

 width=300 height=300 />The Original 7ven (the band formerly known as The Time) will <strong>debut</strong> their new funk-fueled hit, Jay Leno on October 27th. The performance - their first television appearance as the Original 7ven ­ comes just a week after their album, CONDENSATE, is released on October 17th amidst concert and promotional appearances that include a show at the Nokia Theatre in Los Angeles on October 19th, the theatrical debut of their documentary at the Grammy Museum on October 18th, interviews on CNN, the Tom Joyner Show, Yahoo! Music, Vibe magazine's Lifestyle Network, in USA Today and many more. In early December, the Original 7ven will spend a "Takeover Weekend" at the Centric network, with videos, special programming and exclusive interviews devoted to the music and the history of the band. Centric reaches over 28 million homes nationwide.CONDENSATE marks the first time the seven musicians have recorded together in over 21 years. Morris Day, Jesse Johnson, Jimmy Jam, Terry Lewis, Jellybean Johnson, Jerome Benton and Monte Moir deliver exciting funk/rock/pop that drove the launch of the Minneapolis Sound, infused with a new energy and power. Irrepressible front man Morris Day captivates and entertains like no other against a backdrop of musical talent that few can match. The first single off the album, "#Trendin," is already a hit at radio stations nationwide and is the #1 most added song at the Urban Adult Radio format in its first week out.
