The AC Hotel by Marriott in downtown Dallas announced the launch of a weekly live music series. 

The free event kicks off this Thursday, April 26, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the AC Lounge in the AC Hotel. Indie-pop girl duo Danni
& Kris
will perform.

Singer-songwriters and best friends from Fort Worth, Danni & Kris joined forces to create a new musical project formed around acoustic melodies, storytelling lyrics, and harmonies, creating what they call “soulful indie-pop”. Their complementary, soft-yet-powerful voices, accompanied with guitar and occasional ukulele, are not only enjoyable for the ears but also for the soul.

They have performed at numerous venues throughout the DFW Metroplex including; The Prophet Bar, The Door, Klyde Warren Park, Fort Worth Convention Center, Deep Ellum Brewery, and many more. Their quirky-cool vibes EP “Daydream” is on iTunes and Spotify, and their full-length album, “Mountain Sounds,” is available on all listening platforms.

The AC Lounge also offers happy hour, featuring hand-crafted cocktails, red and white wine, and prosecco for $8 each and under, between 4 and 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday as well as a curated selection of tapas-style small bites of gourmet toasts, traditional meatballs, warm olives, charcuteries and cheeses, and other delectable items. Inspired by its Spanish origin, AC Lounge offers guests a modern chic lounge atmosphere, to relax and enjoy their musical guests every Thursday evening.

The lounge is located inside the historic Mercantile Commerce Building 1712 Commerce St.
