Curtis Alan Jones will be as smooth as Green Velvet at Beta

Curtis Alan Jones created the Green Velvet persona to head up his deejaying gigs, and in the early 1990s, his productions (including "The Stalker" and "Preacher Man") gained the attention of dance fiends all over the world. The Chicago house legend (due this Saturday, April 13, at Beta) has been refining the Green Velvet sound ever since. Dabbling with bass and flirting with minimal techno in his sets and productions, he displays a versatility and selective ear that have kept him current for more than two decades – but his tunes are also guaranteed to contain that soulful, funky, distinctive imprint that Chicago house left on dance music (and on Green Velvet) back in the day.
