The Prince and Michael Jackson Experience
As president of Bomb Hip-Hop Records, San Francisco DJ Dave Paul is a highly revered one-man party machine. With a knack for the beat for and a surplus of wax he found at an abandoned Yankee Candle store, Dave orchestrates dance bacchanals that engage revelers anywhere he hangs his headphones. He’s conquered the Bay Area, LA, Portland, Vegas, Chicago, and New York with his unique extravaganza, The Prince and Michael Jackson Experience, and now, he brings the evening of inventive mashes, unabashed nostalgia, and flashing lights to the Motor City. In greatest hits, remixes, and rare cuts, Dave combines the funky sounds of The Purple One with The King of Pop, perhaps blending the gospel intro from “Let’s Go Crazy” with the liquid bass-line from “Billie Jean.” Later, the party adopts a battle-like format where audiences hold up signs declaring allegiance to their chosen soul savior as they boogie down to their favorite jams, which also include cuts from the Jackson Five, Janet Jackson, and former Prince girlfriends such as Sheila E and Vanity 6.
One More Time – A Tribute to Daft Punk
A massive pyramid. Barrages of laser light. And inside the monolith, behind a setup of turntables and mixing boards, two—robots? This was the scene set by Daft Punk’s Alive 2007, their first live tour in nearly a decade, and an unforgettable experience that seemed unlikely to ever be repeated.
Enter One More Time. Donning the chrome helmets of their cybernetic heroes and standing on a full-scale replica of that tremendous pyramid, the duo recreates the vibe of the epic act in a heart-pounding 75-minute set. Crowds dance and spontaneously time-travel to the sounds of Daft Punk’s anthems, club-ready floorshakers, and One More Time’s own remixes. The 2007 tour may be the stuff of neon-hued memory, but this tribute act helps fans relive the electroluminescent dream just one more time.
Saint Andrew's Hall
What was once the meeting spot for the Saint Andrew's Society of Detroit now hosts the hottest live acts and dance parties, including performances by Nirvana, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, and Iggy Pop. The Main Ballroom sports a tricked-out sound-and-lighting system, a VIP balcony, a hardwood dance floor, and a bar more than 35 feet long. The lower level of The Shelter lives up to its name, as red curtains and a cabaret offer an escape to mellower pastures. Upstairs at The Burns Room, patrons chill out on lounge furniture under chandeliers while savoring views of Congress and the RenCen.
