Flyer advertising a Thanksgiving Disco at the Co-Op City Community Center, featuring performances by DJ Breakout, DJ Baron, and Funky 4+1, on Saturday, November 24, 1979. Organized by Pop III and the Co-Op City Black Caucus, the dress code for the holiday celebration was "dress effectively, no sneakers." Funky 4+1, featuring Keith Keith, KK Rockwell, ShaRock, Jazzy Jeff, DJ Breakout, and Lil Rodney C were the first hip hop group to have a record deal, and the first to appear on national television, on the Valentine’s Day episode of SNL hosted by Debbie Harry in 1981, only a few years after this Thanksgiving extravaganza.
