Afrojack headlines a weekend of Revel Nightlife Relief in Atlantic City
Revel’s HQ Nightclub, Atlantic City’s newest club already renowned for bringing in some of the most famed electronic dance music (EDM) talent on the international circuit, is spearheading a humanitarian cause to assist victims of Hurricane Sandy.
With a stellar lineup slated for this weekend, Nov. 9-11, the club, in collaboration with associates Angel Management Group, the EMM Group and Revel, will be utilizing the performances from all three nights, and the revenue they generate, as an opportunity to reach out to a local community in dire need.
In the wake of Sandy’s devastating blows to Atlantic City and similarly affected shoreline districts, and following the lead of N.J. Gov. Chris Christie and First Lady Mary Pat Christie in their establishment of a non-profit relief fund to assist New Jersey families impacted by the destructive storm (SandyNJReliefFund.org), HQ Nightclub has developed Revel Nightlife Relief — an effort to support Atlantic City locals and surrounding neighborhoods by donating all weekend ticket and door sales directly to the cause.
On Friday, Nov. 9, HQ kicks off with AN21 followed by Bambi on Saturday, Nov. 10, and Afrojack on Sunday, Nov. 11 — the latter of whom is an EDM icon in the midst of his wildly successful “Jacked” tour.
Revel Nightlife Relief has already raised $35,000 for the cause, with the hope of achieving or surpassing its goal of $100,000. Tickets start at $20 each for AN21 and Bambi, and $60 for Afrojack, and are available at RevelNightlife.com. Doors open at 10pm each night and are for guests of 21 years and older. Come out for a night (or two, or three) of top-notched nightlife entertainment while simultaneously contributing to a great cause and much-needed relief.

A bright young man bound for a successful career in medicine is not likely to get the go-ahead to pursue a dream in electronic dance music from those guiding his future. Just as unlikely is the nation Michael Brun hails from, Haiti — not particularly known as a hotbed for budding EDM talent.
Looking forward to performing in Atlantic City for the first time, Andrew W.K. is preparing himself for the ultimate holiday party — his annual Party Hard Holiday Tour of the U.S., the finale of which will take place on New Year’s Eve in New York City.
Attention all! Atlantic City is back in business and has been since last fall. The Boardwalk is intact and open. All 12 casino properties are open. Most of the area’s businesses are open.
Leading into the summer debut of its long-awaited HQ Beach Club, Revel is also elevating its spring entertainment slate, particularly at the property’s two-level entertainment centerpiece called The Social.
"I’m very rarely in the studio, only when I have tracks I feel need special attention, but usually I’m on the tour bus with a laptop and headphones. "
" I’m the baseball that kind of like crashed through the window on the side of the house and fell into the living room."
“What we’re seeing right now [in A.C.] is Revel and Borgata going head-to-head with these big-name house DJs. They have become celebrities who get anywhere from $20,000 upwards of $200,000 per night for a couple of hours, and most of the time they’ll sell out these arenas or nightclubs. ... They’re the new celebrities.”
Headlining the countdown to midnight is famed electro house artist and DJ, Steve Aoki, who will be joined by Tommy Trash, Adventure Club, and David Solano.

The South Jersey shore community — along with celebs from across the country — come together for post-Sandy relief and to let folks know Atlantic City is open (and the Boardwalk) for business.
“The club is built vertically, which, from all my years of experience and all the nightclubs I’ve viewed globally, I’ve never seen such a vertical build. "
The catalyst behind Revel’s ambitious nightlife and entertainment options is the Las Vegas-based Angel Management Group (AMG), which brings three unique nightlife concepts to the property and southern New Jersey.
“When I look at Atlantic City, maybe I just see something different,” says DeSanctis. “What I see, when you go out on our Sky Garden or you go out on our deck, that’s sort of the Atlantic City that I think about. We have this incredible geographic location. We have 47 million people within a six-hour drive of this place, and when we think about options from a resort perspective in the Northeast, there really aren’t any. "
Obama: "I want to thank all the first responders who have been involved in this process -- the linesmen, the firefighters, the folks who were in here shuttling out people who were supposed to 'get the hell out' and didn’t."
Not heeding pending-storm evacuation orders is never a wise move, but it can afford a better appreciation for what workers are up against when making barrier islands safe for return.
