Excess moved to a Friday night for St. Patrick's Day. We got to do what we do, the way we do... and wear green doing it! ;)
Specific to the occasion, I started my sets with a "Seven Nations" cover of Under The Milky Way, gave Miss O'Connor a nod with her cover of the traditional Irish poem I Am Stretched On Your Grave, and wrapped my set with Welshman Tom Jones's cover of Kiss. (All covers I've not yet explored on my blog, see below.) All while wearing my shiny lime-green vest! :P
Hope everyone enjoyed it! (You all certainly got the room hot enough!)
Thanks to you all! We'll see you next month for the 7 year anniversary of Excess!

If you visit my website you'll find my schedule of upcoming events, links to RSVP to them, a couple of mixes I've done, and my dark covers blog.

To those who have been there from day one, those who joined somewhere in the middle (like me,) and those who came for the first time... Thank You for coming to celebrate 21 years of HaVeN!!
I don't want to get too verbose about it, but I am ever grateful for being a part of Haven and it is special to me in ways too numerous to express. Thank you all for allowing me the privilege! I strive as always to be worthy. ^_^

In addition to the Friday night party, Arisia '17 invited Dirge & I to do a sequel to last years full-on retro party on Saturday night!
We called it "Timey Wimey Dance II: Back To The Timey Wimey!"
I wore my "MAKE BELIEVE NOT WAR" shirt done in the style of shirt popularized in the 80's by WHAM!, which was my tribute to George Michael.
I'm sure I looked every bit the idiot as I did last year from watching everyone dancing and having so much fun while I got to play even more of the great music from the first 30 years of my life, including songs relevant to that recent "10 albums that shaped your teens" meme!

I'm once again so grateful to all who came and enjoyed the party and as always thank Arisia for allowing me to be part of your experience! Also big thanks to my booth-partner DJ Dirge, without whom I may not have been involved in these amazing events! Hopefully we'll be back next year! Be sure to tell them we did a good job for you!

If you want to join he and I at any other events we spin (and we do quite a few together,) please check my website for my schedule, info, links, etc...

With a few pages of your requests to sort through, I apologize if we didn't get to something you were hoping for or got to it later than you were available to here.

Thank you all for joining us for the last HaVeN of 2016!

As ineloquent as I might be at expressing a great many feelings about this and the coming year, I am truly grateful you all have given me a place to end our year before New Year's Eve...
I wish you all safety, prosperity, and the best in what seems a potentially challenging new year. I will strive as ever to play enjoyable music for you so you can dance in celebration of our community or in defiance of all that might trouble you.
Please be well and be good to each other.

Next Time at HaVeN: FAIRY FLURRY!

Black Friday at HaVeN was a much needed release! And I got to play some new tracks I've been excited about for a while, (though not as many "covered dishes" as I expected to drop, ^_^ ) and a lot of my list was heavily influenced by the heaven/hell theme.
