Quintino escaped his college tour with Tiësto and Tommy Trash last Saturday to headline his own gig at New York City’s revamped Marquee. From a stadium to a nightclub, he arrived at Marquee for his 1am set after treating fans in Philadelphia earlier in the night. There hasn’t been a time slot or setting that I haven’t seen Quintino perform in, be it afternoon or late night, 6PM or 6AM, festival or lounge, every time I see him he never fails to bring his A-game.
And that’s exactly what he brought to Marquee, evident immediately with the choice to open with his forthcoming Tiësto remix. Quintino sported his own productions and tracks that reflect the same sound, unreleased music that included upcoming Afrojack material and, per usual, edgy remixes of naturally mainstream fare to command a nightclub.
Quintino‘s return to New York City this weekend will be a special one. For starters, he is riding solo and headlining without the support of fellow Jacked tour residents Afrojack, R3hab, or Bobby Burns. Having already dominated venues such as Pacha and Pier 94, Quintino looks to take the renovated Marquee by storm this Saturday, February 23rd. The public — or at least those of age — can purchase tickets to experience the dance-enhanced liveliness of Marquee NYC.

Marquee had been one of New York City’s most elegant nightclubs since opening shop in 2003, but 9 years later, the cerebral forces behind Tao, Lavo, and Avenue found that it was time for change. After closing its doors, word leaked that the Chelsea mainstay was under renovations that would acclimate around the rapidly growing demand for dance music talent. The calendar flipped to 2013 and Marquee was ready to go, and after a celebration for family and friends, Dubfire headlined the club’s public re-opening last Friday.
So, maybe Fridays would be the new night out for tech house admirers, but it was no secret that Wednesdays would be the new marquee (pun intended) night for club-goers and dance fanatics with Chuckie slated for the club’s inaugural hump-day affair.
For months rumors of Marquee’s triumphant return as a top tier player in NYC’s nightlife have circulated through club land. Its top secret renovations were promised to revolutionize what it meant to be a club in the Big Apple and its talent bookings were said to focus heavily on a darker, techno aesthetic. With the revered Strategic Management Group at the helm, there should have been very little doubt that the newly renovated club would shake the foundation of nightlife in Manhattan.
After an awe-inspiring pre-opening last night, Marquee NYC is poised to re-establish itself as a preeminent nightlife hotspot in New York City. Slated for its grand opening tomorrow evening, the newly renovated club will feature techno-maestro Dubfire as it’s first high-profile act to grace the space. With future booking such as Sharam and James Zabiela in the coming weeks, it seems the rumors of Marquee designating one night per week to the techier side of electronic music is validated. Tickets for tomorrow night are already sold out, but stay tuned for Marquee’s future lineups – the club is looking to challenge the status quo in NYC.
To commemorate the grand re-opening, Marquee NYC is giving away a custom pair of Diamond Tears headphones. Hop past the break to enter the contest.
