Mariah Hanson Talks Producing The Dinah Safely (AUDIO)


 

 

 

 

 


In this exclusive audio interview Emmy Winner Charlotte Robinson host of OUTTAKE VOICES™ talks with Mariah Hanson, founder and producer of the legendary Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend that’s celebrating its 30th anniversary and takes place September 29th through October 3rd in Palm Springs, CA. The Dinah is back on track for an exceptional 5-day event with an epic slate of Top Ten Billboard headliners, rising pop stars and celebrities. In compliance with the City of Palm Springs COVID safety protocol, all attendees, entertainers and staff are required to show proof of a recent negative COVID-19 test result or proof of full vaccinations to attend the festival. That said headlining The Dinah is Grammy-award winner Macy Gray on Saturday October 2nd at the Palm Springs Convention Center. Gray’s unmistakable rasp, unshakable grasp on soul and funky spirit has ensured Macy’s status as a 21st century icon since her arrival with the triple-platinum How Life Is in 1999. Selling over 25 million total albums globally, winning a GRAMMY® Award and two BRIT Awards and collaborating with everyone from Ariana Grande to Galactic her voice has consistently resounded throughout pop culture. Sharing the stage with Gray is another Grammy-award winner, Yung Baby Tate. Tate may have inherited some of her mother’s musical gift with her mother, Dionne Farris best known for being a member of Arrested Development but she’s built her own path to pop stardom using her own creativity and talent. Making a splash at the Girl Spot Pool Party on Friday, October 1st is leading non-binary artist and actor Kat Cunning with a traffic-stopping voice and powerful presence. The Dinah has discovered so many emerging talents and is now excited to present two bands to watch in 2021 including Boi Band and Smeared Lipstick who will respectively headline the opening and closing parties at AsiaSF Palm Springs. Both bands are part of The Dinah's “Emerging Artist Contest” created as a commitment to the community to offer women and non-binary talents coveted stage time and exposure. We talked to Hanson about what she hopes to accomplish with The Dinah in these difficult times and her spin on our LGBTQ issues. 

Mariah Hanson has continuously utilized The Dinah as a platform to mobilize our LGBTQ community around humanitarian projects and social issues. An exemplary community leader she has single-handedly revolutionized her industry, overturned tradition and raised the bar on female achievement with an event that is entirely produced by women for women. OUTTAKE MEDIA has been a proud Media Sponsor of The Dinah for the last 5 years.                   For More Info:thedinah.com
