Tuesday, March 23, at Shine at the Shelborne, Regisford and Shelter will celebrate 20 years of late nights and early mornings, with a lineup that also features heavy-hitters David Morales and DJ Dino. But Regisford is the man holding everything together, busting out his incomparable bag of tricks for this family reunion of a house-loving crowd.
