Boris joins the elite list of high profile DJ headliners who have performed at Torches, including DJ Skribble, DJ Jazzy Jeff, DJ Clinton Sparks, The Crooklyn Clan, Ted the Dillinger, DJ Vice, DJ Chachi and the late DJ AM. With its breathtaking views along the western bank of the Hudson River in Newburgh, NY, Torches has put the Hudson Valley on the map for nightlife and entertainment.
“I’m excited to see the electronic dance music (EDM) movement continue to gain traction outside of the huge mega clubs of our big cities”, said Ryan Smith, owner of Hudson Valley Nightlife, LLC. “Having access to award-winning DJs, such as Boris, in our own backyard is a rewarding experience.”
EDM has been woven into the fabric of Torches for years now, but each year we’ve seen their lineups expand to include bigger names. Artists that were exclusive to Manhattan are venturing out to attract more diverse audiences.
“The core of the Manhattan and NYC club culture comes from the outer boroughs, the rural areas, the upstate NY, CT, and NJ areas”, said Boris’ manager, Jonpaul Pezzo, via email. “These people drive hours, spend money on hotels, and whatever else to listen to some of their favorite artists in some of the best clubs. This is a lot for someone to do weekly, so I think it’s important for the big DJs and the house music culture to get out to the outer boroughs and the rural areas, especially when they have an adequate club at their fingertips. Many people can’t always make those trips to NYC clubs, so getting up and out to the outer areas is a great way to ensure that we keep the fans happy and bring them the best show possible whether in NYC or Newburgh.”
DJ EZ, Torches’ resident DJ, will open for Boris on Saturday and is brimming with enthusiasm. “As a fan of music, it’s great for us at Torches and the Hudson Valley to have someone at our venue who has played at EDC (Electric Daisy Carnival), rooms like Space in Miami, and Wet Republic in Vegas. As a DJ I’m excited to play big room house records that most DJs only dream of playing for a room full of house music lovers. Overall this is going to be a tremendous party that everyone who attends will remember and everyone who misses will hear about.”
Doors open at 10pm. General admission is $25. Contact Damien at 845-568-0100 for VIP table reservations.
