I did a few super fun guest spots last week at Ethyl's Alcohol & Food on the upper east side NYC and had a blast. Thursday was all vintage throwback 60s and Saturday kickin' 70s-80s classic dance floor gems. Can I just say, after all these years, Madonna's Vogue still can trigger an impromptu party on the flip of a dime. Just have a look!
Don't forget to get in touch as I'm booking Fall/Winter private events and weddings.
I got a text from my friend Sherryl the other day saying she saw this Japanese documentary on Al Kooper, and she was in the band at the time singing. In the middle of the movie was a section on NY Nightlife, and they interviewed a few owners of clubs, celebrities, and yours truly in my DJ Booth at the old China Club when it was on Broadway and 75th Street. This was the first time I had seen the video, and actually had no memory of even doing it!!! I've done so many news shows over the years, and have yet to see any of the clips, I guess I had just brushed it off. But, here's me with my curls saying a few words. Memories of me as a baby DJ!
Have a look
If you'd like to see the whole documentary, you can watch it here:AL KOOPER 'S 50TH BIRTHDAY LIVE 1994
2021 proved to be a challenging year. Just when we thought 2020 would be the peak of all we were going through, 21 came along and showed us we had more challenges yet to deal with. But through it all, I think many of us tried our best to keep our spirits up and get on with life. I'm praying that this last variant moves along quickly, and we can get back to getting together with each other and celebrate life and all the special occasions that need to be celebrated.
New Year's Eve was fun for me, and I once again proved to myself that I still have the energy of that Energizer Bunny, because I spun for 9 hours non-stop to a full dance-floor of happy people from all over the world. Rumpus Room was rocking. I decided to remain masked for the night and glad that I did as I made it through the holidays without getting sick.
I'm looking forward to this year, taking bookings now for weddings, corporate events, birthday celebrations, & other private events. Please reach out asap to make sure I have the date available to hold for you. Till then, all the best, and Happy New Year to you all. Stay Safe, & Stay Healthy!
Here's a couple of shots from New Year's Eve
Let's spend the night together (as the Rolling Stones would say back in the day!!!) I'll be spinning up a storm tonight at Rumpus Room, down on the lower east side, 249 Eldridge St, right off Houston. The theme this year is disco, but I'll be bouncing through the decades with the best of what came out yesterday and yesteryear. Join me. 🥂
For those that can't make it, I wish you the best New Year ever. Cheers to 2022 being a little kinder to us all. Big love to you all 🖤🎧🖤
About last night...Sometimes it’s fun to go off menu, and throw on a random cool track to watch the dance floor go wild!!! 💃🏻🕺🏼 The Gipsy Kings version of Volare was just the right song at just the right time, peak hour at Ethyl's on the upper east side NYC. Great crowd, good fun.
I love doing these guest DJ spots around town in between my event/wedding work.
Welcome to my virtual loft party, make yourself at home. I'll put on the kettle, pour a few, and order a pizza. I've many tales to tell, some fun stories, and lots of helpful hints to share to help ignite your imagination when planning a party, grand event or wedding. Stay tuned!
