Asst Veep of Wynn Nightlife Ryan Jones speaks to Vaughn Lowery of 360 MAGAZINE about Swedish House Mafia and Calvin Harris final performance

Wynn Scores SHM!

Asst Veep Ryan Jones solidifies residency with Swedish House Mafia at Wynn Las Vegas.

Listen to Ryan Jones on 360 MAG Apple/Spotify podcast HERE.

After individually booking the group members of Swedish House Mafia to spin, Wynn Nightlife decided to build a partnership to include the entire ensemble. This will mark SHM‘s first-ever nightlife residency within North America.

According to Ryan Jones, assistant vice president of Wynn Nightlife, the group has received an overwhelming response, resulting in almost sold out show.  

The first two shows, August 20th and September 3rd, will both be held at the XS nightclub. Although Swedish House Mafia will play a traditional set in the DJ booth, audience members will witness a few surprises on those specific dates. Both shows will happen on Saturday night, around 1:30 am or 2 am and play until the venue closes. With a capacity of about 4,000 people, including 176 VIP tables, Ryan thinks the show will be an enormous success.  

In addition, Calvin Harris will perform on September 17th at XS nightclub. More exciting news will be announced in the coming months.

As an innovative brand which has worked in tandem with both Coachella and the Super Bowl, the Wynn continues to seek new and exciting ways to remain relevant in both the music and entertainment industries.

According to Ryan, with regards to philanthropy, the community outreach program at Wynn Nightlife is robust. To date, the staff has volunteered 2,500 documented hours to various local charities and elementary schools within city limits.

For young people who seek similar positions, Ryan suggests they explore every aspect of the industry before making a decision.

Moments after Griner was sentenced, the White House released a statement, reportedly in the name of US President Joe Biden. The statement read, “Today, American citizen Brittney Griner received a prison sentence that is one more reminder of what the world already knew: Russia is wrongfully detaining Brittney, […] It’s unacceptable, and I call on Russia to release her immediately so she can be with her wife, loved ones, friends, and teammates.”
