Vegas Nightlife Shifts to Live Entertainment (And The Sound Collage is Leading the Charge)
If you were at Bellagio’s Lily Bar last Saturday night, you witnessed a fresh new take on Vegas nightlife. Las Vegas’ newest a cappella group, The Sound Collage, is using harmony, vocal-looping technology, and classic pinup sex appeal to change the afterhours music scene from predictable to extraordinary.

Three female singers in crop tops and victory rolls—Elly Brown, Shannon Joyel, and Jaclyn McSpadden—blend with all-vocal DJ Joshua Danger, who is also the talent behind the groups’ lush, full arrangements.

“It’s completely a cappella—without any instruments—but I always have to remind the audience that it’s entirely vocal”, Danger says.  “I use live vocal looping to infuse layered beat boxing and bass lines underneath the girls’ harmonies, and we mimic the sounds of horns and strings.”

Basically, he turns Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift, and Pharell tracks into an explosively cool musical experience.

Singer Elly Brown notes, “Crowds are getting more sophisticated.  The era of escapist, hammer pounding beats and overpaid DJ’s is slowing down, and audiences want a deeper experience than just numbing themselves on vodka shots and loud noise.

“Young people now are looking for an extraordinary experience.  Sexy craft cocktails and hot a cappella music give the Millennial more to engage in, more to talk about with their friends and on social media.  And we are so delighted that the Hakkasan group found The Sound Collage, and recognized that potential in us.”

Vocal DJ Joshua Danger says, “Down the road, we’re going to be in nightclubs.  Clubs are the new showroom…so why not merge them?  The Sound Collage is the group to make that innovation a reality.”

“I predict that The Sound Collage will be at the forefront of this changing nightlife revolution, maybe even challenging the traditional DJ as the main nightclub attraction”, he muses.  “Who knows?”
