South Florida fans were DNCE-ing on cloud 9 this past weekend! Not only was DNCE in town opening for Selena Gomez’s "Revival" tour on Saturday, June 11th, but the band had a chance to stop by the HITS 97.3 Studios for a special and super intimate HITS Live event. If you're not familiar with HITS Live, or haven't had a chance to join us - this is where HITS 97.3 listeners and fans win a chance to interact with some of their favorite celebrities - in a room of no more than 80 people. Fans get to have lunch, take pictures, and ask questions to celebrities like Fifth Harmony, Shawn Hook, Sofia Carson, even Iggy Azalea!
If you don’t know much about DNCE yet, they are a band formed by Nick Jonas’ older brother and previous member of the Jonas Brothers, Joe Jonas. Joe is joined by musicians Jack, JinJoo, and Cole (who has a really punk rock hairdo!). DNCE was nominated "Favorite New Artist" at the 2016 Kids Choice Awards, and their first single, "Cake by the Ocean" exploded into the top ten on the Billboard top 100 Chart.
The group has recently garnered a lot of buzz after having the beautiful and first ever plus-sized model to ever be featured on Sports Illustrated’s cover- Ashley Graham - in the music video to their second released single, "Toothbrush". With a blend of catchy vocals, singalong melodies, and musicians who can ROCK - there is no shortage of fun and flavor when it comes to this band!
New Single: "Toothbrush" Vibe: Cool driving with the top down record, Weekend Vibes, Spontaneous Karaoke ;)
Records it mixes with: Can't Stop the Feeling - Justin Timberlake, Light it Up - Major Lazer, & Same Old Love - Selena Gomez.
Some more details on the event itself are below!
HITS Live with DNCE courtesy of the new HITS 97.3 and Lexus of North Miami and Lexus of Pembroke Pines went down at the Hits 97.3 Penthouse this past Saturday in Hollywood, Fl. The food was catered by Whiskey Tango with an assortment of mild & hot wings, mac n’ cheese, and chicken strips!! :P
The top 3 fun questions asked by the fans:
1.) If you could be any Coffee Flavor, what would you be?
Joe: Panther Cold Brew
Cole: 100mph Motor Oil Gasoline
JinJoo: Iced Vanilla Latte
Jack: Just a regular plain old Cappuccino
2.) Favorite thing to get at Whole Foods:
Jack: Good beer Selection and Cheese
Joe: Healthy unhealthy snacks
Cole: Alcohol/Salsa Selection
3.) Who’s the better dancer of the four?
Cole took this one and said they are all different, Joe’s strength is ballroom, his own is weird avant-garde conceptual robot dancing, JinJoo is hiphop and twerking, and Jack’s like the the coolest guy at the rock show dancing.
