Fremont Street Experience is getting ready to spin the night away with a free concert by DJ Roonie G on Saturday, November 20 from 9 p.m. – 1 a.m. on the 1st Street Stage.
DJ Roonie G is known as one of the most innovative audio-visual DJs; where most DJs spin only audio, Roonie combines audio with visual content. For the first time ever his audio-visual style will be mixed on Viva Vision, the largest video screen in the world.
DJ Roonie G is different from most DJs. He produces his own mix by combining audio with visual that includes popular music videos, legendary movie clips, comedy shorts and more. Roonie is a two-time winner of the Club World Awards and was a nominee for “America’s best DJ.” He has DJ’d at some of the biggest celebrity parties including Super Bowl parties where he opened for Diddy, Wyclef Jean and Kid Rock. Roonie has also DJ’d for some of Donald Trump and Floyd Mayweather’s exclusive events. He has performed with rocker Tommy Lee and has made appearances on MTV2, CNN and Club World Magazine.
Roonie is also a pioneer helping to launch some of the groundbreaking DJ equipment used today. It all started while DJ’ing at the Nightclub and Bar Show, where Pioneer Pro DJ Karl Detken watched Roonie’s unique skills and approached him with the earliest model of the CD turntable, the Pioneer CDJ-700. With this new technology, Roonie demonstrated by using “three 700s, replaying the beats live using the cues,” which led Pioneer to create the “Hot Cue” function on the CDJ-1000. Shortly after, Roonie collaborated with Detken and Pioneer engineers to create the first DVD turntable.
The Fremont Street Experience is a five-block entertainment complex located in historical downtown Las Vegas. In 1995, Fremont Street was closed to vehicular traffic and a giant screen was suspended 90-feet over the street to display spectacular light and sound shows on its 1,500 foot surface. The 12.5 million lights of the Viva Vision screen dazzle 365 nights a year and make the Fremont Street Experience a one-of-a-kind venue. With direct pedestrian access to 10 casinos, more than 60 restaurants, specialty retail and free nightly entertainment, the Fremont Street Experience attracts over 18 million annual visitors.
