Breathless Resort & Spa + Now Onyx
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic
December 1-5, 2017
Our 11th Holidaze was everything we could have asked for and so much more! The weather was perfect, the drinks were flowing, and the music was nothing short of supreme. There's nothing quite like hitting the beach with the Disco Biscuits, Umphrey’s McGee, STS9, plus featured sets from Joe Russo’s Almost Dead, Lotus, The Motet, GRiZ, Spafford, SunSquabi, TAUK, and Wolf + Lamb.
Holidaze always gives us a reason to celebrate, and this year was no exception! Music permeated the resorts all weekend, with poolside sets from GRiZ, Wolf + Lamb, Brendan Bayliss, and DJ Naysayers. The party moved to the beach for sunset and beyond. Umphrey's McGee, STS9, and the Disco Biscuits each threw down 5 scorching sets with compliments from GRiZ, Joe Russo's Almost Dead, Lotus, and The Motet. This Holidaze was one of the most collaborative events in recent years, with The Motet joining each of the hosts bands for some truly outstanding sit-ins. Brendan Bayliss also joined the Disco Biscuits for an epic cover of Prince's "Controversy." The Jazz Improv set with members of Umphrey's McGee, STS9, and The Motet was one of the most highly anticipated sets of the weekend and far exceeded expectations.
This year featured a plethora of new and exciting activities that were the perfect ways to spend our days in paradise! From beachside morning Yoga and Autograph Signings, to Hydration Funk with SunSquabi and Name That Tune Bingo with GRiZ, to the Mystery Mixologist and Ultimate Tailgate Party, there was no shortage of good times being had during the afternoons! Guests were also welcomed to dance in the moonlight during the enchanting Full Moon Party.
Thanks to everyone that added to the magic - we hope to see you all soon!
