    April 3, 2014 (Louisville, KY) – Local venue Play Dance Bar is proud to announce their first annual Whipped At Derby party kicking off Derby Eve with special guest and performer-the one and only Boy George.

    Boy George is universally recognized as one of the music scene’s most iconic artists and for the past 30 years has maintained a strong position at the forefront of this ever-changing, multi-faceted industry. With an ever-expanding and prolific musical output, his presence as a DJ and producer continues to attract high praise from the scene’s most revered tastemakers and media outlets.   From selling over 100 million singles and 50 million albums as a performer and songwriter with 80’s super group Culture Club and as a solo artist to maintaining his position as one of the world’s most successful and in-demand international DJs, George’s list of achievements is unparalleled. 

    “We could not be more excited about the official launch of one of the hottest Derby parties in Louisville.   Our state-of-the-art venue, art lighting, and sound provide a exciting and unique experience for both Louisvillians and out of town guests,” said Joe Brown, owner and partner at Play.

    Along with its modern and trendy décor and theater, Play is known for its wide array of entertainment while hosting local, regional, and national DJs nightly.  Their sister club in Nashville has hosted many national acts along with becoming a celebrity hot spot.  Play Nashville was also voted “Best Place to Dance” from 2005-2013.   Whipped At Derby will be open to the public with presale and VIP tickets available.
