VAIL — An all female DJ line-up will take place at Samana on Friday night. One of New York City’s most well known female DJs, Erica Rhone, will be headlining tonight after the opening set with local female DJ, Ramona. In recent years, women have made huge stride in the electronic dance music scene breaking through the “all boys club” that has existed.
Erica Rhone developed her love for dance music the first time she stepped foot into NYC’s limelight in early 2000s.
“The way the DJ controlled the room was breathtaking, and I was determined to become a part of that energy,” Rhone said.
Her knowledge of music has widely expanded through her world travels. Nationally she’s rocked the Playboy Mansion and the desert for Burning Man. Worldly, Erica hit the dance floors in Asia, Australia and Jamaica, and she’s not stopping there — recently, she’s been spending her time in the studio producing.
“Erica plays some of the best house music out there and her energy is wonderful to be around. Once Erica was confirmed, I knew that I had to complement her with another female artist, and who better than local up-and comer-Ramona to open. This is a first for the Vail Valley and should not be missed,” said Ross Cohen, Samana’s talent buyer.
