Live Music & DJs
These folks are bringing you sweet tunes to keep the dancing going all weekend.
Chance’s End – Saturday Night
As Chance’s End, San Francisco-based producer Ryan Avery creates electronic music fronted by solo violin. The project was formed in 2001 to explore how acoustic violin sounds when featured prominently in places it normally isn’t. With a laid-back downtempo sound reminiscent of Groove Armada, the group is helping redefine the role of the violin in popular music.
A violinist for almost 30 years, Ryan first studied as a classical musician before branching out into other styles such as bluegrass, blues, and jazz. Ryan began mixing violin and electronica to add a unique element to his early electronic productions, out of which Chance’s End was born. Vocalist Emily Zisman was brought on in 2010, whose experience with folk music, soul, and swing now also figure prominently in the group’s music. The duo’s very different backgrounds make electronica the perfect common ground to blend their styles and influences. You can hear some of their music HERE.
Diana & The Big Time Band – Sunday Night
Diana Castro leads the Big Time Band with big time vocals. Hailing from New Orleans, Diana is a local gem to Denver’s party scene. The Big Time Band features Blues, Soul, R&B, Funk, Pop music and more to keep you dancing the night away. Diana has a unique energy and captivates her audiences while singing everything from Etta James’ to Michael Jackson’s popular hits. Hot Night Fusion Weekend is so lucky to have a band that provides such variety for our dancers.
