Headliner: Dan Fester
Time: 10 p.m.
Venue: The Sand Dollar Lounge
Genre: One-man band
Artist Info: Forget a one-man band. Dan Fester is a one-man rock concert. With over 2,000 shows under his belt, its hard to know where to even begin to tell the story of the 31-year-old artist.  A well-practiced musician, who began playing shows regularly at 13 years old, his frequently updated catalog features more than 400 songs representing all genres and decades that the audience can choose from to guide the show, in addition to originals and improv jams thrown in along the way. Dan is a live-looping artist, using synthesizers, electronic drum kit, guitar and vocal manipulation to create a full spectrum sound, all without a computer or prerecorded tracks. A sampling from his eclectic mix includes murder ballads from Johnny Cash, the epic guitar jams of Jimi Hendrix and fan favorites from Prince and the Beatles. But the roster doesn’t stop there. His flexibility is apparent in his take on today’s hip-hop and electronic dance music. Drawing on tunes from Kendrick Lamar, Flaming Lips, Drake, Post Malone and Daft Punk , a mere cover just doesn’t cut it: he plays the role of musical magician as he elevates, renovates and remixes songs to his taste, coaxing his auditory mashups into something transcendent. Prince becomes dub, Beatles becomes neo-funk, the Doors get a dirty layer of bass and Led Zep is hip- hop.

About The Sand Dollar Lounge
Originally opened as a blues bar in 1976, The Sand Dollar quickly became a draw for iconic musicians including Muddy Waters, B.B. King, and even Mick Jagger over its first 30 years. Hit by hard times, The Sand Dollar closed its doors in 2013, but its spirit would not let it rest and within two years the Chinatown-adjacent bar was purchased and reignited by hospitality veterans Anthony Jamison and Nathan Grates. Honoring the tradition and history of the iconic Las Vegas venue, The Sand Dollar Lounge has reclaimed its beloved spot as a premier live music venue with free entertainment nightly, adding rotating craft beer selections, an extensive whiskey collection, seasonal craft cocktails by some of the city’s best bartenders, an amazing pizza kitchen, and table-top gaming in a smoke-free environment. In 2022, the iconic blues bar opened its second location in Las Vegas, located at The Plaza Hotel & Casino.
