Held at Shampoo Nightclub in celebration of the Thanksgiving Day holiday, this event is largely responsible for Thanksgiving Eve becoming the busiest nightclub night of the year in Philadelphia. The tradition of the Buttaball continued for four years, increasing in attendance year after year. Music for this original event was provided by DJs Adam Bennett, Gigi, Joe Cas, Jorge Johnson, Lorne and special guest DJ Armand Van Helden. As one in the steady progression of top in-house producers for Strictly Rhythm during the early '90s, Van Helden joined the likes of Todd Terry, Erick Morillo, Roger Sanchez, Masters at Work and George Morel to record scores of club hits.
