David Paul Mancuso was an American disk jockey
David Paul Mancuso (October 20, 1944 – November 14, 2016) was an American disk jockey who created the popular by invitation only parties in New York City, which later became known as The Loft. The first party, called Love Saves The Day, was in 1970. Mancuso pioneered the private party, as distinct from the more commercial nightclub business model. In the early 1970s, Mancuso won a long administrative trial when the New York City Department of Consumer Affairs found that he was not selling food or beverages to the public and therefore did not need a NYC cabaret license.
