After spreading hope online, he is back to making records and rocking stages. D-Nice kicked off 2021 co- curating the Official Playlist of the Biden + Harris inauguration. Soon after, he performed at the official in stadium Super Bowl LV pre-show. D-Nice continued the year taking his talent from his sold-out Club Quarantine Live at the Hollywood Bowl to the iconic Met and Kennedy Center Honors Galas. After bringing in 2022 on Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, he opened at the NBA All-Star Game and helped provide the soundtrack for the 94th Academy Awards. D-Nice rounded out 2022 by headlining and co- producing both a sold-out presentation of Club Quarantine Live at the legendary Carnegie Hall and making history with Club Quarantine Live as the first DJ and hip-hop artist to headline at the Opera House at the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
