House Party Weekend Lineup 2016
Since House Party Weekend was called off three years ago, students have taken it upon themselves to continue the weekends traditionally music-driven atmosphere. While bigger names like Shwayze or Mike Jones may be absent from the lineup, smaller names, not to mention student musicians, will make sure House Party's melodic atmosphere continues on in spite of its lack of officiality. Fiji will be bringing The Hometown Boyz, a band playing a variety of country, bluegrass, classic rock and original numbers. Playing major festivals, as well as small backyard parties, The Hometown Boyz the band's five seasoned musicians, can jump from bluegrass to rock n' roll, are sure to have the crowd going.
Sig Ep will be bring Bencoolen, an alternative rock band from George Washington University. The band, made up of "two guitar slinging songwriters, a barefooted drummer, typically cool bassist, and a fan-favorite sax player", and inspired by "Bon Iver, Foals, Pearl Jam, OAR, and the Arctic Monkeys", have made a name for themselves on the college music scene. At their register on Friday night Sig Ep will also be bring Bobby Green, the DJ who brought us notable party tracks like the remix to "Deadly Rhythm" and "Reckless."

At their register on Friday night, Lambda will be hosting two up and coming EDM bands, You & Me and Two Friends. You & Me, an emerging EDM duo, says "Dance music isn’t about who is on stage, but rather who is in the crowd." With the belief, that fans help create the music, this pair is likely to bring an exciting show for the whole audience. Two Friends is made up of Matt Halper and Eli Stones, who began as "high school bedroom producers" only to become a major dance duo of 2016. They'll be showing off a wide range of genres from "deep, melodic house to harder progressive cuts."
