Award-Winning Artist, Producer, and DJ is Joined by Celebrated Hip-Hop and R&B Artists Including 702, Bun B, Israel Houghton, Lloyd, Scarface, and More
(Black PR Wire) NEW YORK, NY — Carnegie Hall today announced an all-star lineup of guest artists including 702, Bun B, DJ Clark Kent, Israel Houghton, Kathy Sledge, Kenny Burns, Lloyd, and Scarface to join D-Nice in a special presentation of Club Quarantine Live on Wednesday, July 12 at 8:00 p.m. in Stern Auditorium/ Perelman Stage. Hosted by comedian and actor Chris Spencer, this highly anticipated event also features the multi-genre ensemble Igmar Thomas’s Revive Big Band.
One year after his sold-out Carnegie Hall debut, D-Nice returns for another Club Quarantine Live, a dynamic event that will have everyone dancing all night while celebrating music, community, and love. Throughout the isolation of the pandemic, D-Nice’s revolutionary Club Quarantine brought a worldwide community of millions together. It has since expanded offline with highly sought-after events across the country including his historic performance as the first hip-hop artist and DJ to headline at the Opera House at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and a sold-out 3rd anniversary concert at The Apollo Theater.
