VAIL — To close out the ski season, Samana Lounge will be hosting five different nationally and internationally touring acts that have successfully drawn a crowd each time they have visited in years past. The first of these artists is the Reno-based duo known as Love and Light, who perform Thursday night.

Music production artists Matt Madonna and Ryan Anderson found their roots and their inspiration in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada, forever transforming their lives and musical ambitions after discovering the Burning Man festival. Inspired to share the feeling of intense connectedness and explore the freedom of a new musical experience with people around the world, Love and Light has grown to be not only a “DJ duo,” but pioneers a of potent omnigenre concert experience.

Love and Light aims to break the mold of the dance-music experience by providing a fresh and uplifting take on bass music that has not been experienced before.

“Of all the bass-heavy artists that visit Samana Lounge, Love and Light has one of the most positive and energetic vibes, creating a spiritually elevating experience throughout their set,” said Samana’s promoter, Ross Cohen.

Love and Light is gaining momentum and international recognition. They’ve performed at a variety of dance venues, concerts and on the main stage at festivals around the world, including performances at Burning Man, Coachella, Wakarusa and more.

Local DJ Frankie Free Water will perform beginning at 9 p.m. Other acts to look for at Samana by the end of the ski season include Mark Farina, Yo Mama’s Big Fat Booty Band, SuperVision and Thugf#@ker.
