Patrick Crough and Jake Resnicow are teaming up with iconic photographer Rick Day to celebrate the release of Day’s new photo art book, Players 2. PLAYERS THE EVENT will be an exclusive, VIP-only event, and several of the athletic models featured in the book will be on hand, with music by Anthony Batista and Billy Lace. The games begin promptly at 10 p.m.

“We are thrilled to honor Rick, one of the greatest photographers of our time, on the launch of his new book,” Resnicow said. “PLAYERS THE EVENT will be an upscale, intimate affair, with all the ‘wow’ factors our fans have come to expect.”

Crough and Resnicow pride themselves on elevating the gay party experience. As the US producers of the Matinee party brand, their events don’t simply pump dance music. These provocateur architects re-imagine venues and craft elaborate atmospheres.

“It will be the gay equivalent to parties thrown at the Playboy Mansion,” Crough said. He will be celebrating his birthday at the event as well. “Testosterone levels will be off the charts, with all the gorgeous models and male celebrities Rick has shot over the years filming the room.”
