SPECTRUM | The Dallas Pride Tea Dance 2016

Immediately following the Dallas Pride Parade on Sunday, we’re wrapping the weekend up with DJ Joe Gauthreaux at our tea dance event, SPECTRUM, held on the massive patio of S4. Joe Gauthreaux has made a name for himself across the world with his popular chart-topping remixes and original productions, like the release of “Bye Felicia”. He’s spun at all the big parties, like Southern Decadence, Atlantis Cruises, White Party Palm Springs, and even headlined Purple Party Weekend’s tenth anniversary in 2010. Opening for Joe is Dallas local DJ Benson Wilder, who’s no stranger to the dance floor or DJ booth. His podcasts have been garnering attention with online DJ communities since 2000, and his energetic blend of circuit, club, and house music has allowed him to spin for parties in Austin, Dallas, and New York City. S4 is conveniently located in the heart of The Strip and has an expansive multi-level patio with more than ample seating for visiting with friends and plenty of space for dancing as the sun sets on your Dallas Pride weekend.

Hey, I’m Joe.

I’ve been alive 35 years now and still have not even remotely come close to figuring everything out. What I do know is that I’m a DJ & musician who absolutely loves his job. Actually, I don’t even really think about what I do as a job – to me, music is more like something I live, eat & breathe. And it just so happens that I manage to get paid somewhere along the way. So thank you to everyone out there who has helped me turn something I love so much into a career path!

These past few years have been a series of incredible moments in my life. I have gotten to play at clubs and parties all over the world that I only dreamed about, and now I’ve gotten to remix artists that I have come to know & admire, like Tony Moran, Frenchie Davis, Kristine W., Bimbo Jones, Ne-Yo, and yes.. even Justin Bieber!

Other than that, there’s not much else. I love dogs and rainstorms. I sing Taylor Swift songs in the shower. I will always be a New Orleans boy at heart. And I am very much a textbook Leo.

So thanks for taking a minute out of your life to read this! Maybe check out my website and podcasts and all that fun stuff???? If you’re not too bored ?

In 2006, Benson started his Sunday residency, Church, at Rain on 4th in Austin, TX. He headlined Austin’s infamous Big Gay Brunch and made a name for himself with both gay and straight audiences while rocking Terrace59’s monthly rooftop party.

Since then he’s proudly joined Purple Foundation as a committee member.
