March 10th: Tech House Nigh
Guz and Offaiah headline Cervantes on March 10th. Prepare for a night of masterful tech house! Opening the night is Stereo Nine of Denver House Music. Headliner Guz hails from the Netherlands.

Represented by the Sink or Swim Label, Guz will bring full-on party vibes to Cervantes. Check out a clip of one of his past sets here!
He’s joined by Offaiah of the Defected label. The DJ has more than 400,000 monthly Spotify listeners. Offaiah grew up in East London. Considered a phoenix-from-the-ashes story, his stage name is a play on the words “all” and “fire.” He’s been producing hits since 2000. His debut, “Trouble“, was one of 2016’s biggest dance records. A helicopter crash in 2017 took the artist out of commission for a bit, but the DJ is back on the scene in full force right now. His most recent single “Up All Night“ is out now. Don’t miss this frontrunner of progressive house music.
