Hotel Vagabond, Singapore’s newly opened experiential art hotel, has announced New York-based DJ Captain Planet, aka Charlie B. Wilder, as its first major artist-in-residence.
His tenure will run for three months until January 17, 2016 and as part of his residency, Wilder will mingle with hotel guests and visitors each evening at 6pm for the Artist Cocktail Hour, and perform on select nights.
During his three month stay at the hotel, Captain Planet will entertain guests in the opulent Vagabond Bar four nights a week from Wednesday to Saturday, injecting a dose of fresh tunes into the local music scene.
Each night features a different musical genre to appeal to Singapore’s cabal of party-goers, while also retaining Wilder’s signature world-music sound.
After cutting his teeth in the ultra-competitive New York City club scene, Wilder (The oft-masked man behind Captain Planet) now travels the world, blending global music beats to create his signature ‘Gumbo Funk’ style.
Hotel Vagabond is the only hotel in Singapore to offer an artist-in-residence program, where artists of all disciplines and from all over the world are invited to apply to stay at the hotel for a maximum of three months.
The only pre-requisite is that they engage with guests at the hotel during their stay and leave something of their art behind when they leave.
