Purple Foundation has been keeping the magic alive all year long with our series of quarterly dance events, and Score is definitely no exception! The third installment of Score at the Dallas Eagle promises to be our biggest, best, and most anticipated yet.
Score dance parties give you more of what you love: great dance music, good friends, and cold drinks! The Eagle is one of the friendliest, most diverse, and most popular dance clubs in Dallas, where guys of all types come to cut loose, have fun, and be themselves. The enormous patio is also a great place to cool off and have conversation when its time to take break from the dance floor.
Join us on Saturday, June 14, for Score with DJ Shane Stiel. The suggested donation at the door is $5, and like all Purple Foundation events, all proceeds go directly to local AIDS organizations. The Eagle will also be donating a portion of its bar sales for the night. Come have a great night out with your friends, dance to quality music, and best of all, support a great cause! Mark your calendars now, because June 14 will be here before you know it!

If you’ve ever heard DJ Shane Stiel spin, you’re immediately convinced this guy was born to DJ. From the all-night events of the Rocky Mountains in his early years to the high-energy club events of the West Coast, this DJ turned Navy veteran turned DJ is making one indelible impression on the club scene and shows no signs of slowing down.
A Colorado native whose musical roots were fueled by hip-hop, 80s, rock and EDM, Shane found inspiration in artists like Seb Fontaine and Judge Jules. In the late 90′s, his DJ career kicked-off when he scored his first gig with ColoradoRave.com during one of their popular festival events. One night was enough to convince not only the crowd, but festival promoters, that he was ready for more and shortly after he became the company’s top resident. After leaving ColoradoRave, he continued to work closely with friend and party promoter Ryan Dykstra. Dykstra’s successful long-running night at Club Pure gave Shane a chance to meet and befriend several well-known DJ/producers like Kimball Collins, George Acosta, Guy Ornadel, and Jon Bishop.
Years of hard work and determination later, Shane landed some well-deserved time alongside several major global headliners. His big break came in 1999 when he played alongside George Acosta, officially solidifying his name in the Denver nightlife scene. Shane quickly became a regular fixture in the DJ booths at Denver nightclub’s Traxx 2000 and Club Matrixx, earning praise and respect as one of Colorado’s top DJs. Big names like Tiesto, The Crystal Method, Deep Dish and Digital Assassins were taking note which helped him secure coveted opening spots, working with them at events.
At the height of his DJ career, the events of 9/11 struck a personal cord in Shane and, in early 2003, he took a break from music to join the Navy. The military eventually brought him to San Diego and, after relocating, he immersed himself in the local nightlife culture. This was all the inspiration he needed to get back to doing what he loves the most.
A decade later, Shane has risen through the ranks to become not just an international DJ, having headlined major events in the US, Canada, and Mexico, he’s become a brand. In 2012, he launched HAUS of STIEL, a hybrid DJ/production/promotion company fusing his signature sound & style with a visual performance element that his throngs of fans – known as HAUS HEADZ – have adopted as a “persona” of sorts when attending his events. Shane continues his DJ domination with residencies at clubs in Denver, San Francisco, and San Diego, headlining signature club events all over the world, producing his own regular podcast, and developing new music projects, both in the studio and in the clubs.
