Quarantine is trying for a lot of folks that aren’t used to being homebodies, and DJ D-Nice wants to help with that. He’s been throwing at-home parties, and there’s another one coming tonight.
The parties are a welcome break from the feeling of isolation quarantine can bring and a pretty cool way to get that live set feel without, you know, breaking quarantine and going to the club.
If you weren’t on social media over the weekend (and no one blames you because it can be a bleak place), you may have missed the Club Quarantine party hosted by acclaimed DJ D-Nice. The high profile musician has been hosting virtual dance parties, which originally began mid-week last week with his “Home School” social distancing parties. Flash forward to Saturday, and Dj D-Nice was the account to follow and tune into on social media.
Over the weekend, Club Quarantine practically exploded online. Not only was the event trending on Twitter, but major celebrities were tuning in. Some of the biggest players in the entertainment industry hopped into a virtual club with other social media users for a massive online party, including big names like Rihanna and Oprah. The result? DJ D-Nice’s Instagram Live gained over 105,000 live viewers. Yes, that is 105,000 people in a virtual club all at one time. Impressive, right?
If you’re worried you missed out, don’t be. The sets keep coming with one starting this evening, Wednesday, March 25th, at 6:30PM EST:

Ready for another party? Excited to team up with @MichelleObama's @WhenWeAllVote this Wed. Starting at 6:30pm ET on IG Live to play a set while volunteers across the country text eligible voters to help them register to vote. You can sign up to help too: weall.vote/couchparty
Of the parties, D-Nice explained to CBS, “I don’t have a playlist, I literally just play what feels good. You know, I wanted people to feel good. I wanted the experience to be lifted through music, one song at a time.”
If you missed the weekend’s party or the set coming tonight, though, don’t worry. DJ D-Nice’s Instagram is public and open for followersk so the next time you need a quarantine pick-me-up, he’s likely got you covered.
