Weekend Dance Explosion is the brainchild of Christopher Lane and Stevie Bensusen, two well established Los Angeles industry veterans with thousands of shows under their belts. They were both searching for a new musical direction when they met four years ago and it didn’t take long to figure out that they were on the same path. They both wanted to perform feel good music that was more organic, less processed and less programmed than what was being played at radio so they began exploring musical forms that were closer to their roots. Christopher is the guitarist and Stevie is the front man, both raised on a diet of RnB, Soul and Funk. The result was the creation of Weekend Dance Explosion.
