JEFFREY SANKER’S WHITE PARTY PALM SPRINGS 2015 HEATS UP WITH MORE SPECTACULAR SUNDAY T-DANCE PERFORMANCES BY ALEX NEWELL & NATALIE LA ROSE

LOS ANGELES –April has arrived, signaling the final countdown to the largest gay dance music festival weekend in the world. With that in mind, producer Jeffrey Sanker has taken the excitement level up yet another notch for his climactic Sunday T-Dance for White Party Palm Springs, April 24-27, 2015.   Atlantic Records recording artist and “Glee” star Alex Newell and I.M.G/Republic Records recording artist Natalie La Rose will hit the stage with sizzling sets Sunday afternoon (April 26) along with previously announced T-Dance superstar LeAnn Rimes.

Fierce, dynamic and wildly talented “Glee” star Alex Newell is one of those great artists that come around once in a lifetime.   Newell, who many know as series regular Wade “Unique” Adams on Fox’s Glee, recently signed to legendary Atlantic Records and has been featured on a number of  worldwide dance smashes. Now he is ready to bring his incredible vocal talents to the T-Dance stage.

Natalie La Rose is “Somebody” the world is paying attention to!   Her debut single, “Somebody” featuring Jeremih, is already a smash at radio, where it is #1 at Rhythm and Top 10 on the Top 40 airplay charts.  “Somebody” recently entered the Top 15 on the Billboard Hot 100 and has reached the Top 10 of both iTunes’ Pop and Overall Top Songs chart. The single is also one of the Top 5 “Most Shazamed Records in the USA,” has over 30 million streams on Spotify worldwide, with 10 million YouTube/Vevo views and counting.   Originally from Amsterdam and signed by superstar Flo-rida, Natalie is extremely excited to be making her White Party debut and “turning it” for the gay masses.

Said Sanker, “It’s thrilling to present not only established superstars like LeAnn Rimes, but also showcase new, up and coming talent on our stages.  We’ve all enjoyed watching Alex on “Glee” and hearing Natalie in the clubs and on the radio. Now for the first time, their passionate and blistering performances come to the Sunday T-Dance.”

A spectacle like no other, T-Dance truly is an unforgettable emotional awakening as day turns to night at the foothills of the San Jacinto Mountains.  Whether you're out on the dance floor or taking in the vistas from atop the world-famous White Party Ferris Wheels, there’s no shortage of eye candy or jaw-dropping views.  This year’s DJs include: Ralphi Rosario, Paul Goodyear and Wayne G.  Under the starry night, all eyes gaze upward for the legendary T Dance fireworks display; choreographed to an exclusive musical remix by maestro himself, Wayne G. 

The day prior, WPPS revelers will get to bask under the desert sun for the all-new, massive Saturday daytime extravaganza at Wet ‘n’ Wild Palm Springs Water Park (18 and over).  Enjoy all the attraction has to offer, including 20 water rides and thousands of scantily clad men, while you groove to the sounds of DJ Gustavo Scorpio, DJ Grind and, and SoCal favorite, Tiger Heat’s DJ Ray Rhodes. Cocktails and other alcoholic beverages will be available at fully stocked bars located throughout the park (21+). Use complimentary shuttles running continuously to and from the Renaissance Hotel or park for free on-site. 

WHITE PARTY WEEKEND and in need a holistic approach to the marathon weekend of nine parties in seventy-two hours? Warrior yoga is the fusion of the classical Ashtanga Yoga asanas (poses), pranayama (breath control), meditations, along with philosophies and discipline of stretching & strength training. Rejuvenate the body, let the mind rest, and the spirit soar. All levels welcome. Join sexy Yogi Master Francisco Ramos on the lawn behind the Renaissance Hotel at the east entrance to the Convention Center at 9:30 am Saturday & Sunday to recharge and start your day right for the parties to come.

(Yoga participants need to access the East Lawn by exiting the front of the hotel, turning left and then  left walking down through self-parking to cross over to the East Lawn by the Convention Center. There is no access through the pool deck as that area does not open till 10am on Saturday and 11 on Sunday).

WHITE PARTY 2015: HIGH RESOLUTION IMAGE FILES
JEFFREY SANKER'S BIOGRAPHY

The MIAMI HERALD dubbed him “the high priest of gay parties.” GENRE MAGAZINE lists him as “Circuit Master.” NEXT MAGAZINE describes him as “the sultan of soirees.” And CIRCUIT NOIZE MAGAZINE simply calls him “the man.”  With every accolade, Jeffrey Sanker further solidifies his name as the premier producer of gay nightlife and entertainment.

In 2014 Jeffrey Sanker received a star on the famed “Palm Springs WALK OF STARS,” aptly placed on the S.E. corner on Palm Canyon Drive and the (very gay) Arenas Road!

Jeffrey Sanker is the founder of LA-based White Party Entertainment, Inc. and creator of such signature events as WHITE PARTY PALM SPRINGS; New Year’s Eve celebrations in Los Angeles, Miami & Rio de Janeiro and the One Mighty Party at Orlando’s Gay Days.

Sanker has been credited by the MIAMI HERALD as being “the father of the modern gay event party.”  Nowhere is this more evident than with Sanker’s trademark extravaganza:  White Party Palm Springs, which has evolved into the nation’s largest gay dance music festival, attracting more than 30,000 attendees from every corner of the globe. 

Sanker’s passion for parties began during the early eighties in New York City.  Working at such legendary locations as Studio 54, Palladium and Private Eyes, he fine-tuned his skills as a promoter and special event producer.  He has hosted parties for numerous celebrities over the years.

Sanker moved to Los Angeles in 1987.  His innovative technique of using landmark venues for trend-setting themed events was credited for breathing new life into the Los Angeles scene.   Since then, he has worked with all of the hottest and trendiest venues and nightclubs in Los Angeles, Las Vegas and Miami.        

Superstar entertainment has become a hallmark of Sanker events.  Lady Gaga, Carmen Electra, Jennifer Lopez, Icona Pop, Kelis, Ke$ha, Deborah Cox, Boy George and Lisa Vanderpump, have all graced the stage at Sanker events.  Over the years, Jeffrey has also helped launch the careers of hundreds of new and up & coming performers.

World-class DJs reign supreme over Sanker’s packed dance-floors as well.   His events feature high caliber DJs/producers, including: Dave Aude, the late Peter Rauhofer, Junior Vasquez, Victor Calderone, Freemasons, Manny Lehman, Rosabel and Tony Moran.

Jeffrey has also helped ignite the careers of countless other rising-star DJs by giving them their first big break.  This prompted NEXT Magazine to comment: “the two best friends a DJ can have are Madonna and Jeffrey Sanker.” 

Sanker has proudly produced fundraising events on behalf of numerous charities and community organizations, including Gay & Lesbian Elder Housing (GLEH), The Trevor Project, and Desert AIDS Project.

Sanker currently resides in Los Angeles.  More info at www.JeffreySanker.com
