While a rising DJ in the French city of Avignon, Chris Garcia made a trip to Sin City that would alter the course of his life, as it has for many. He arrived in Las Vegas for a two week vacation and was mesmerized by the city’s club scene. He quickly decided to pack up and make the city his new home. After immersing himself in the city’s nightlife, he was quickly offered his first American residency at Drai’s. He has since risen to become a celebrated fixture of the Las Vegas club scene and books gigs all over the country and internationally.
Jeff Montalvo started off his music career as a metal and punk drummer. It was only after he got a copy of audio production program FL Studio (FruityLoops) from a friend of his that he was hooked on production. Soon, DJ sets replaced drum sets and Montalvo struck out to change dance music as Seven Lions. He is now recognized as one of the fastest rising DJs in Southern California and will be performing alongside Flinch and Candyland at Avalon Hollywood on Friday, May 17.
Doorly never forgot his Yorkshire hometown even once he was performing and residing at top European superclubs. He teamed with Bongo Dave to launch and promote the event Afterparty at a mill in the small city of Huddersfield, attracting the likes of Calvin Harris, Annie Mac, and Armand Van Helden to perform.
It was quickly recognized by Mixmag and Galaxy Radio as Britain’s best club night. Admirably, Doorly sought only to break-even on this event, never actually profiting from the event — he did it just for fun!
Eventually the event was ended after five impressive years as both he and Bongo Dave had other ventures and demands to pursue. Doorly can still be found at Ibiza Rocks during the summer and travels internationally to DJ at the worlds best venues. Find him tomorrow night alongside Dieselboy and Terravita at Avalon’s CONTROL Friday.
