The annual Dominican Holidaze celebration continues on this week, taking over the Breathless Resort & Spa in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. Given the nature of the destination getaway, Dominican Holidaze has already hosted a number of special moments and sit-ins, including members of The Motet teaming with both The Disco Biscuits and TAUK on Saturday night.
Last night, the collaborations kept on unfolding, with Umphrey’s McGee’s Brendan Bayliss joining the Disco Biscuits on a cover of Prince’s “Controversy”. The cover of the title track of Prince’s 1981 album came during the Biscuits’ first set of the night, in the middle of a “Sweating Bullets” sandwich coming out of set-openers “The Very Moon” and “Voices Insane”.
