Thursday Night Belly Up Party - Steve Grand followed by DJ Dan $65January 16, Steve Grand will start around 9pm, with DJ to follow at 11pm. Venue & Price $65 per person, FREE TO PASS HOLDERS
Steve Grand has been writing music since the age of eleven, and dreaming about recording and performing for as long as he can remember. Yet, only recently, did he decide that he was “ready” to take his shot at building a career as an artist. And was he ever!
The release of his first original song and music video, “All-American Boy” on YouTube on July 2, 2013, was an overnight success, accumulating more than 1.5 million views in the first two weeks, and more than 2 million today. The song, set against a familiar backdrop of country roads, an American flag and friends around a campfire, struck a chord because it simply, beautifully tells the story of unrequited love between two men.
For over 2 decades, DJ Dan has been a leader in the Electronic Dance Music scene. An innovator. A tastemaker. A true legend. A record collector at heart, his sound combines the spirit of 70s Disco and Funk with driving House and Techno. With his label, InStereo Recordings, Dan continues to push boundaries and influence the future of dance music as well as to inspire countless DJs and producers.
