The Stage is Set for D.R.A.M.
The Pueblo of Santa Ana, N.M. – Nov. 17, 2016

Santa Ana Star Casino, New Mexico's Best Bet, welcomes rapper, singer and songwriter D.R.A.M. to The Stage on Saturday, Nov. 26. Doors open at 9 p.m.

D.R.A.M., whose real name is Shelly Massenburg-Smith, hails from Hampton, Va., and has been making music for more than a decade. Although the genesis of his career was spent making small-scale productions, his big break came in 2015 when Beyoncé released a video of herself dancing to his debut single, "Cha Cha," on Instagram. The video went viral, and D.R.A.M. has since become a fixture in mainstream music. Dismissing the gritty nature of much of mainstream rap, D.R.A.M. instead produces largely feel-good music that breaks the genre's rules, traverses styles ranging from hip-hop to soul and showcases his signature resonant falsetto. His latest single, "Broccoli," has gone double platinum since April and peaked on Billboard's Hot 100 at No. 5. D.R.A.M. also recently released his first full-length album, "Big Baby D.R.A.M.," featuring a host of collaborations with artists including Young Thug, Lil Yachty and Erykah Badu. The album is described by Pitchfork's Jayson Greene as "a stream of joyful, heartfelt and every-so-slightly silly songs."

Admission to D.R.A.M.'s performance at The Stage at Santa Ana Star Casino is $10 at the door. Private VIP sections with bottle service are also available. Call (505) 771-5353 for more information about VIP services or to book a private VIP section.

Doors open at 9 p.m. Guests must be 21 years old or older to attend. For more information, call (505) 771-5680.
