On Monday May 14th, The RnRD Family salutes the cast of Cirque du Soleil's VOLTA with this performance. Darius Harper is part of both productions. His VOLTA cast member, Yann Arnaud, tragically lost his life last month, leaving behind a wife and two young children. 50% of all proceeds will be going directly to his family to help during this difficult time. A special in memoriam number in honor of Mr. Arnaud will be performed with special VOLTA guest, Camilla Bäckman, on violin.
The Down-N-Dirty Disco transports guests to the golden era "with a twist": with the roots of rock and roll tied into classic disco tunes. Guests can expect to hear classic tunes such as "The Boss", "Love Train", Boogie Wonderland" and more revamped in the signature Rock N' Roll Debauchery style, while they shake their groove thing with a cast of Stage, Film and Television vets.

Cocktails and food will be served throughout the evening with reserved seating, standing room and more! All guests are "highly encouraged" to dress the part as photographers will be on hand to capture your best disco looks.
