Some might caution the readiness and command of a twenty-two year old.  They might call into question the lack of experience or credentials of such a young artist.  Yet, with Shah Munir, better known as Shahz, such questions are quickly put to rest, and caution eliminated.

His resume reads like a seasoned veteran – from being showcased at esteemed venues such as 1 Oak, Avenue Greenhouse and Marquee in New York City, catering to the A-list crowds in LA, London and Dubai to collaborating with mega-stars from DJ AM, Felix Da Housecat, Fabolous and Sean Kingston, to DJ David Berrie, Maino, Dj Chachi, Wynter Gordon and Trey Songz and having corporate clients such as Cartier and Moet Chandon.

Such international performances and collaborations, as well as his unique talent to understand and adapt to both crowd and setting has made his reputation reverent and his nightly performances unprecedented. Rest assured, this young artist is on the way to achieving great lengths in his future endeavors.

Tiësto’s Club Life Tour at the DC Armory

Saturday April 9, 2011

The partnership between Tiësto and Glow extends as far back as 2001’s Superglow massive. DC experienced the 2003 Nyana Tour and numerous In Search of Sunrise events. They brought DC nightlife to its knees with the 2007 Elements of Life outdoor event, drawing nearly 8,000 people. In 2009 Tiësto brought an LED concert set-up to the stage at Fur Nightclub. Most recently he brought his Kaleidoscope Remixed tour to DC for a no frills party… the calm before the storm.

“It’s been great to see Tiësto grow from our first event, to packing the clubs, to the outdoor show, one of our proudest moments, and now coming full circle to this. Tiësto outdoors was groundbreaking for DC Nightlife. This time it will be more impressive!”
– Antonis Karagounis, Panorama Productions, Glow Owner

Opened in 1941, the DC Armory is Washington, D.C.’s auditorium, arena, big top and ballroom.

The Armory can be adapted to audiences of varying sizes from 10 to 10,000 people and its interior features nearly 70,000 square feet of exhibition space.

Tiësto – The World’s Biggest DJ/Producer

Recently voted ‘The Greatest DJ Of All Time’ by Mixmag and widely regarded as the world’s biggest DJ/Producer, Tiësto has worked with global superstars such as Nelly Furtado, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Goldfrapp and more… His recently completed Kaleidoscope World Tour spanned more than 15 months and 175 dates across 6 continents playing to over 1,000,000+ people. He was nominated for two 2010 Billboard Touring Awards (alongside Lady Gaga & Justin Beiber) and listed in Billboard’s Top 25 biggest grossing global touring acts of 2010. Tiësto is busier than ever in 2011 with the launch of ‘Tiësto In Concert’ in Las Vegas, a monthly residency at The Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino.

Michael Woods: Thu 3/24 [Glow at Lima]

Uplifting like Avicii and Axwell, bouncy with a little tech like Mark Knight, pushing forward like Deadmau5; Michael Woods has managed to distinguish his sound from all others… he has Diffused. He is on the short list of artists whom Deadmau5 works with. The ‘Diffused Music experience’ promises all the thrills and great ‘hands-in-the-air’ tracks that you crave while bringing the idea of elegant but epic music to the masses.

John Dahlback & Albin Myers “Myback Tour”: Thu 2/10/11 | Glow at Lima

We just found Sweden’s best kept secret. It’s called Myback and it’s a far better ride than any Mercedes. We hate to perpetuate the ‘amazing Swedish house producer’ stereotype, but hey… Like their contemporaries, they’ve each got their own style. We’d call it grungy melodic house. We’re running out of words… YOU. SEE. COME. MUST. MYBACK!
