New York´s Roger Sanchez has been an insanely popular house DJ since releasing records on the classic dance record label Strictly Rhythm in the early ´90s. Apparently, he´s a big draw on at least a few continents. To wit: Last month, some dodgy club promoters in South Africa falsely advertised Sanchez as spinning at their club when they had never even made the request.
Independance takes place Wednesday, July 4, beginning at 11 a.m. at DoubleTree Surfcomber Hotel, 1717 Collins Ave., Miami Beach. Tickets cost $30 for those 21 and over. Call 305-375-0001, or visit www.clubspace.com.
Not to worry, though, housekateers: Sanchez´s next Miami appearance, for the 12-hour pool and beach party dubbed ¨Independance¨ for the holiday, is secured. He´ll be joined by performers like Madrid´s Chus and Ceballos and local luminaries/DJs Oscar G. and Cedric Gervais. It should be a lot of fun to dance during the day and still have time to hit another hot spot after the 11 p.m. finale. Careful, though: Slippery when wet is more than the name of a Bon Jovi album.
