w// DJs Father Jeff, Jose, & Wren
Father Jeff started Ward 6 at a time when there was no weekly dance night. WARD 6 started on September 8th, 1990, a weekly Saturday night, at a small club which lacked the proper licenses, at the corner of Leroy Street and Seventh Avenue South. The police raided it a few times and put the patrons against the wall in the tiny dance room. Eventually, the cops took a chainsaw to the bar and physically took a part of it away. On March 16th, 1991, WARD 6 moved to the Michael Todd Room at the Palladium. Opening night had over a thousand people. In the fall of 1991, the party relocated to 16 West 22nd Street, at the lower level of the Cadillac Bar. After New Year’s WARD 6 moved below a restaurant at 31 Union Square West. The space had a huge fish aquarium.
