Last year, D-Nice brought his mega-popular social media phenomenon Club Quarantine to life on stage with a sold-out show at the Hollywood Bowl which featured special guest appearances from The Isley Brothers, Common, Trey Songz, Deborah Cox, Sheila E, and Mary Mary. The live shows continued with sold-out stops in New York and Atlanta. In addition to plugs from Rolling Stone, TimeOut, and more, Billboard hailed “Club Quarantine” as “one of the most uplifting events to take root during COVID-19’s stay-at-home mandates.”
During quarantine, D-Nice launched his Club Quarantine virtual parties on Instagram which brought millions of people together during the stay-at-home mandates. The virtual community connected people from all over the world and provided a much-needed uplift during troubled times. Live Nation Urban has given him a platform to expand this experience worldwide.
