MARLBORO, VT -- In celebration of the re-opening of Persons
Auditorium - which has been undergoing renovations during the winter
- Marlboro College is pleased to announce a special performance
by disc jockey Smash Hunter, a club music innovator, from 9 p.m.
to midnight, Friday, April 28.
Hunter, who has performed at various venues worldwide, will present his ground-breaking musical/rhythmic dialogue about the history of house music, including diverse genres, interpretations, and mixes from around the globe. Known as a dance/jazz pioneer, Hunter is featured on such trend-setting labels as Nu Groove, Eight Ball, Instinct, and new Breed Records. In January 1999, he introduced his new imprint, Midnite Recordings, which focuses on disco and funky-styled house music, working towards a New York sound with an international appeal.
"As a DJ and producer, I can't help but project a global influence with my sound, whether it's house, hip hop, breakbeat, jazz, or whatever," says Hunter. "So my projects are a reflection of my travels and experiences, as well as all the funky, creative people I've met around the world."
General-admission tickets for this substance-free event are $10 per person and free for Marlboro College students, faculty, and staff. Persons Auditorium is fully accessible.
