Miami Beach, FL – February 10, 2014 –  For one night only, Fat Black Pussycat returned to FDR Mondays with Secret Society to raise funds for our dear friend & South Beach Pioneer DJ Mark Leventhal. The original Fat Black Pussycat didn’t last long but definitely left a mark on the South Beach scene. Fat Black Pussycat was an untamable beast with no shame in her game and the place where DJ Mark Leventhal really began to shine. The tuff talking, ball breaking, take no shit DJ who had been serving up Tea on Sunday’s behind the Palace would soon quickly become one of the most memorable people to hit the South Beach scene. “Sista” was his name, but the folks up in Boston called him DJ Mark Leventhal. Leventhal was armed with deep, soulful cuts and R&B Classics, owning the room every time he walked in. He was more than just a DJ, he was a personality that lit up a room as he would play games with the crowd sand mash songs together and kill the volume to hear everyone singing. Constantly reaching to find the perfect pitch, Mark knew it was always about the music. As a DJ he had respect for new talent and felt comfortable enough to take a back seat at times to let other DJs shine. Mark loved to give; he probably would break your balls if you had asked him for a fifty in the middle of his set, but would give it to you because Leventhal was nothing short of a giver and a nurturing brother. I want to look over to see and hear DJ Mark Leventhal spinning again; and see if he’s got any cigarettes on him so I can bum one just to drive him crazy. What we want is for Mark to know that he has touched so many people with his music, deeds and kindness as well as his one a kind personality. I, and on behalf of the whole crew, are damn proud to say we have been friends with him for this long. We all wish nothing more than peace for DJ Mark Leventhal and his Family. We Love you Mark Leventhal!
