Not another Live Stream –
THE DOJO is an Interactive Virtual Nightclub Experience
Saturday, April 25
Featuring a 4-hour extended set by disco legend Nicky Siano
(Studio 54 Resident)
Aerial Art Performance
Raising Money for The Sweet Relief COVID-19 Fund
THE DOJO is a digital gathering of grooves, where music is the foundation, and openness and curiosity are rewarded. During this time of staying safe at home, The Dojo enables guests from all over the world to be entertained while seeing and connecting with each other. It is an open canvas for all guests to share their talents. No matter the situation, nothing can stop us from connecting with each other.
As the music industry pivots to online events during this time of quarantine, there’s a new event format, bubbling up especially in the club & nightlife scene that enables guests and artists/performers to interact and see each other as they would at an actual event and venue.
Instead of this being a potentially sterile performance, like a lot of the live streams can be, this is a truly interactive environment for the guests and the performers. This Sat 4/25, THE DOJO’s 3rd installment in the virtual event series is hosting a special 4hr set by the legendary original resident DJ of Studio 54, Nicky Siano, live from New York. The event will also feature performances by aerialists live from Las Vegas, a Comedy Room with standup comedians live from Los Angeles, and a more relaxed room where guests can converse and watch the creation of live visual art.
The Dojo experience starts with a quick comedic encounter with a bouncer before he lets everyone enter. The event is also raising money for the COVID-19 Sweet Relief fund.

There are many creative opportunities for artists and brands to integrate in this new format, and the founders ook forward to expanding this experience concept even in a post-quarantine world.
