For those of you not ready to end the music, magic, and dancing so early, Purple Party Weekend is bringing back Glow, our Sunday night closing party—now with a later closing time and an amazing new venue! Headlining Glow will be DJ Danny Verde, one of the world’s most in-demand international DJs, with an opening set by Dallas’s DJ Mike James, who’s always a crowd favorite. Danny Verde has headlined at many of the world’s biggest music festivals with incredible success, and his performance during our main event in 2013 was so outstanding, we had to bring him back for an encore!
For 2014, Glow is moving to Le Vu Nightclub, formerly the site of the legendary Club Seven. Le Vu has been extensively remodeled, and its intimate dance floor is surrounded by large elevated boxes and comfortable couches. Combined with our added lighting, lasers, and visuals, it’s the perfect spot to end the weekend with your best friends, old and new, while reliving all your favorite weekend memories—one more time.
Danny Verde is a musical prodigy who has worked in all aspects of music; including house, dance-pop production, DJ, songwriting and vocalist. He lives just outside Milan in Northern Italy, where his recording studio “Holab Studio” has been home to much collaboration with international labels, artists, and producers, churning out nearly 70 Official Productions and remixes from 1994 to present. His first big success was with the Italian S.M.S. project, which produced two hit singles, including, “La Vie C’est Fantastique” in 2001, which was number 1 on the official Italian dance chart, as well as the follow up, “Just A Bit Of Chaos”, which reached both number 1 in Italy and Brasil on Time Records. His next project was the huge international single “La Isla Bonita”, a cover of the classic Madonna tune. The song was issued under the band name SQUEEZE UP and was published in more than 20 countries. The hit made it into the top 10 singles chart in France and was supported by a video clip shot in Marbella, Spain. SQUEEZE UP’S next single was another Madonna cover, “Who’s That Girl”, and was licensed in Scandinavia, Japan, Russia and Greece. In 2008 Danny released the house track “Pushin To The Top”; in collaboration with The Halmadaxx Team and with the help of International DJ’s reached number 1 on the Ministry Of Sound download chart; number 1 on the Djdownload.com chart and was top 10 on the Beatport progressive house chart.
After being hired to do a remix for Tommy Boy Records (New York), for the single “Heartbreak on Vinyl’” by Blake Lewis (from the US TV program American Idol 2007), which went to number 1 in the official Billboard Dance Chart U.S in 2010, Danny was signed exclusively to Tommyboy as a producer, and to Madtizzy Productions for DJ representation.
Fast Forward to late 2011 – OCT 21 – Danny Verde’s Remix of Lady Gaga’s YOU AND I is the #1 most downloaded on iTUNES of all the official remixes, and #1 on the BIllboard Dance Music Chart!!! As if that wasn’t enough, on the same chart, his remix of Eva’s Ashes is climbing as well!!! Jump three months to JAN 09, 2012, and Verde’s SECOND CONSECUTIVE Single with Lady Gaga , MARRY THE NIGHT, also tops at #1 on the Billboard Dance Chart, at the same time that Rosabel’s LET ME BE MYSELF (on which one of the supporting remixes is Verde’s) , is at # 18. FEB 19, Verde scores another hit with Neon Hitch’s FUCK U BETTA which debuts #8 on Billboard Dance, and reaches #1 by first week of March. And Summer 2012 has welcomed yet two more Verde Remixes which are quickly becoming dance floor favorites: Cyndi Lauper’s SEX IS IN THE HEEL, and The Wanted’s CHASING THE SUN, which reached #1 Billboard in July, giving Danny his FOURTH #1 Billboard Club hit in less than nine months.
Already staple on the European Dance Circuit, 2010-11 proved to be a huge season for Danny in South America, where he has played literally every major city in Brazil…. in less than one year. However, it’s Danny’s ever increasing roster of US and Canadian venues & events for 2012 , that everyone ‘s lips buzzing with his name…..including NYC PRIDE Alegria, San Diego Pride Main Event, Vancouver Pride Rapture, Montreal Pride Main Event , DC’s Town, Boston’s House of Blues, Miami Winter Party Festival, Toronto, SFO’s Hero, White Party Week Miami, and now Purple Party. Several DJs can only produce. But when you talk about a Producer who can actually deliver a relentless set to a live audience, Danny Verde is the Man.
