This is a first for Samana Lounge, an all-female bill. One of New York City's most well known female DJ's, Erica Rhone, will headline Friday night with local female DJ Ramona starting the night off. In recent years women have made huge strides in the electronic dance music scene breaking through the "all boys club" that has existed.
"Erica plays some of the best house music out there and her energy is wonderful to be around," according to Samana's talent buyer Ross Cohen. "Once Erica was confirmed I knew that I had to compliment her with another female artist and how better than with local up and comer Ramona to open. This is a first for the Vail Valley and should not be missed."
Rhone developed her love for dance music the first time she stepped foot into NYC's Limelight in early 2000.
"The way the DJ controlled the room was breath taking to her and I was determined to become a part of that energy," Rhone said.
Her knowledge of music has widely expanded through her travels world travels. New York's scene has also greatly inspired her and she's graced the decks of such esteemed clubs as Pasha, Sullivan Room and Cielo. Nationally she's rocked the Playboy Mansion and the desert for Burning Man. Worldly, Rhone has performed in Asia, Australia and Jamaica.
Lately, she's been spending her time in the studio producing. From unique minimal beats to energy rising tech and Nu-Disco, she does not discriminate any categories within these genres. It's all about moving the crowd physically and emotionally.
