Washington, DC (November 2, 2011) – On November 5, 2011, Renaissance Arlington Capital View will host an exclusive DJ Set by the collaborative duo AM & Shawn Lee as part of Renaissance Hotels’ global entertainment platform RLife LIVE. AM & Shawn Lee will welcome the night with 60s & 70s euro soundtracks, sound library grooves, psych, global disco edits and cosmic funk.
L.A.-based indie-pop auteur AM and London-based groove-master/experimentalist Lee pooled their talents to create a unique brand of electro-soul that achieves seamless pop perfection, while mining a startlingly broad array of stylistic influences. Their debut album, Celestial Electric, unveiled at SXSW in Austin, Texas in March 2011. The duo is on tour now with Thievery Corporation.
The lounge menu will feature specialty cocktails and the Blue Ribbon Classics Menu developed by acclaimed chefs Eric and Bruce Bromberg of New York’s popular Blue Ribbon Restaurant Group.
The RLife LIVE series at Renaissance Arlington Capital View, a brand new luxury hotel in Arlington nestled in the heart of Crystal City, will continue every Thursday evening from 6-8 pm in the Lounge through December 15th. Guests have the unique opportunity to discover local music talent and enjoy the atmosphere of the newly built, award-winning hotel. The RLife LIVE series is free and open to the public.
Throughout 2011, RLife LIVE has showcased an eclectic fleet of emerging artists at various Renaissance Hotels as a continuation from the launch of the program in 2010 with artists such as Robin Thicke, Thievery Corporation, Bruno Mars, Robyn, Janelle Monae and Neon Trees, among others.
