New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
The Sundance Film Festival happens once a year. Movies are bought and sold as entertainment commodities for hundreds of aspiring filmmakers and veteran actors, but just as popular as the silver screen presentations are the myriad of private parties, lounges and who's who events that blanket the small town of Park City, UT. On Jan. 22-25, 2015, located at 710 N. Main St. in the coveted Courtyard Summit, attendees are offered an escape from the barrage of movie premieres and meetings. Illuminating from the epicenter of the Sundance Film Festival, the Independent Filmmaker's Lounge and its exhibition of talent, celebrity high life, gifting and entertainment have tailored this invitation-only lounge as more than a destination but as an experience that comes with influence.
With an iconic presence, the Indie Lounge as it is more commonly referred to, is widely known not only as an industry hotspot but also for its hospitable environment and full service Snap Daddy's gourmet catering inserted in the background of this entertainment oasis. This year's live music, presented by Koffeehouse, will play home to Andy Frasco, Kallie Therian, Brian Ashley Jones, D'Lannie Brown, Micah Gardner, Travis
McClung, Chef Sean, DeAndre Wright, T!M Ned, Nathan Osmond, Matthew Reese, Simply B, Stephanie
Mabey and Jaysin Voxx.
After dark at the lounge on Fri., Jan. 23 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m., fans of the former "Ralph Malph" Happy Day's actor will be delighted, as the now jazz singer presents "An Evening with Don Most: A Tribute to Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin
and Dean Martin." Sat., Jan. 24 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. "Dish Nation's Sundance Survival Party Hosted by Darnaa" is sure to pack a star-studded crowd with a live performance from the EDM recording artist herself. Thereafter, Hip Hop royalty Raekwon
Killah of the internationally acclaimed Wu-Tang Clan
will pop up for their very own "Purple Party w/ C.R.E.A.M., Cocktails and Q&A" from 9:30 p.m. to 12:30 a.m. Polishing off the weekend, Sun., Jan. 25 from 8 p.m. to 12 a.m., Madflower Creative Group and RallySong have joined global humanitarian/filmmaker Kweku Mandela (Nelson Mandela's grandson) to present "REPRESENT." The party is in support of Operation Underground Railroad, a non-profit organization that rescues kidnapped children from slavery around the world.
