About Dance With Lance

Background
Dance With Lance Entertainment was founded by Lance Kussell, an established music
and event professional in the Boston area. Dance With Lance DJ performances and
special events get people moving, the mood elevates, and event attendees quickly
realize they've come to the right place! The music is thrilling and the crowd wants
more. The company offers disc jockey entertainment, event planning services, and
special event production for private, corporate, and institutional clients.

Kussell is a graduate of Harvard College and Boston University's Graduate School of
Management (M.B.A). While he worked as an intern at WBCN 104.1 FM in high school,
it was during his undergraduate college years when he launched Dance With Lance
Entertainment as a solution to disappointing music at gatherings of all kinds. Quickly,
he became a fixture of campus parties from Boston College to Babson, and from
Wheelock to Wellesley. After hundreds of nightclub, wedding, and private party
performances, Lance, or "Dance With Lance" is Boston’s
sophisticated host and
electric DJ entertainer.
As one fan put it, he has become truly “the cure for the
common DJ”
. Simply put, his combination of inspired music selection, broad
knowledge of all popular music, and a true entertainer's touch makes the Dance With
Lance experience truly satisfying.

The Dance With Lance Event Series
For the professional crowd that has for so long enjoyed Dance With Lance music
for their dancing pleasure, Dance With Lance developed special events designed
around a signature, powerful blend of music. Some of these events include Union of
The Groove, A Mid-Winter's Night Ball, New Year’s Eve, Harvest Ball, Emerald Ball,
Halloween costume parties, Rock The House, and Summer Garden Galas; sometimes
black tie affairs or more casual opportunities to go dancing. These special events are
hosted at the finest hotels and venues, such as The Castle, Taj Boston, Copley Plaza,
Hampshire House Mansion, and Newport Tennis Hall of Fame. The Dance With Lance
event series reaches out to event goers who wish to enjoy the combination of
“impact” music and fun, interesting people for their dancing and socializing pleasure.
Dance With Lance event-goers love to dance, and enthusiastically support the events
through strong loyalty and word-of-mouth. These parties are perfect for singles
and
couples.

Special Credits
Dance With Lance has also performed at, and consulted to, major nightspots
in the Boston area, including Houlihan’s, The Palace, The Commons, The Hunt Club of
Cape Cod. Other credits include the format design and promotional execution of
“Discotheque Saturday Night” at Vincent’s Nightclub in Randolph. For Vincent's, Lance
wrote and voiced some 24 :60 sec commercial spots aired on Boston's STAR 93.7FM,
making "Discotheque Saturday Night: good for the body, great for the soul" a tag line
known to thousands of listeners throughout the Boston area.

Dance With Lance, notably, has shared the stage with such national acts as The Four
Tops, Tavares, The Trammps, and Gary U.S. Bonds. Locally, Lance has had the
opportunity to produce major events such as the Harvard 25th Reunion and concerts
featuring The Psychedelic Furs, English Beat and others. Performances in conjunction
with bands such as Booty Vortex, The Marsels, Souled Out, the White Heat Orchestra,
and Bo Winiker Orchestras, among many others, have been perfect combinations at
these special events. Kussell's love of classic cars also led to some extra work in the
2013 blockbuster
American Hustle for himself and his '68 Ford Torino! Regardless of
the audience, one thing is clear: Dance With Lance has delivered consistently
outstanding performances for delighted audiences throughout the years.
