    Turntables and champagne showers typically aren’t the first things that come to mind come time for Thanksgiving, but a party at Club Congress aims to pre-game the holiday with exactly those things.

    Starting at 8 p.m. tonight, local artists El Hanko Dinero, TrueDrew and Slim Dr. Ice Physician will be stealing the stage, ready to turn up and throw down for Congress’ HANKSGIVING.

    El Hanko Dinero said he draws his musical influences from futuristic, galactic sounds, 1980s break dancing music and rock ‘n’ roll, giving his crowd all the beats it needs to let go and dance.

    “It’s the type of music to dance to,” he said. “We know how to pump up a party.”

    Coupled with laser lights and alcohol, El Hanko Dinero is looking forward to singing and performing at the ultimate dance party.

    El Hanko Dinero said he began experimenting with sounds when he was 10 years old and has since gained a bulk of his inspiration from energy drinks and champagne.

    Slim Dr. Ice Physician will be the master of ceremonies for the event. Slim Dr. Ice Physician said he aims to bring his authentic sound to the stage of Congress.

    He said he has been making music since 2001, where he first began drawing his musical influences from trap and street sounds.

    “It’s straight trap music. It’s street shit,” he said. “We’re turning up to the max, popping bottles, you know, trapping up Club Congress.”

    Andrew Droegemeier, also known as TrueDrew, will be claiming the stage alongside Dinero and Slim Dr. Ice Physician on Wednesday. Drew has been playing music since 1998, when he first began turning tables and experimenting with his sound.

    Droegemeier said he and El Hanko Dinero have similar tastes in what shows they want to put on and what music they’re looking to produce. Their similar styles have led to collaborations over the years, he added.

    “We don’t like stuff too technical; we just like having a good time,” Droegemeier added.

    Droegemeier said he draws his musical influence from the Beach Boys, Pantera and fictional artist Zladko Vladcik.

    “I like my music to be considered summer music,” Droegemeier added. “I like it because summer is still here even though it’s gone.”

    While the three musicians each have their own unique musicality, they said they’re heading out to Congress for the sole purpose of bringing the party.

    The show is free and open to attendees who are 21 and older.
