Starlight: Every Thursday at SkySixty in Orlando

I've had a nice history of Thursday weeklies in Orlando, including the beloved (at least by me) Holy Frijoles Thursday party at Knock Knock way back in the day. So, with that in mind, I'm totally pleased to announce a brand new Thursday party that I'm starting at downtown Orlando's plush outdoor venue SkySixty. And we'll be ready to go as soon as this very Thursday, February 25.

This weekly party will be called Starlight, inspired in part by the obvious fact that at SkySixty you'll be dancing 'under the stars.' But it's also inspired by the style of music I'll be playing, and this wonderful song by NYC's Escort bearing the same name gives you a healthy clue:

I'm going to be focusing on smooth vocal house tunes, with touches of disco and broken-beat in the mix for good measure. The flyer byline says "deep, sensual, vocal house music under the stars" which is exactly what we're aiming for here. Basically, cool tunes that you can choose to dance along to or you can just chill with your friends and have a listen. Starlight will be a fun, casual night in a beautiful, comfortable setting.

SkySixty is also making this a Ladies' Night which means that all drinks will be half off all night for (say in seductive voice) "the ladies." Nice one, eh?

This happens this Thursday, February 25, and every Thursday at SkySixty, located at 60 N. Orange Avenue in downtown Orlando, above The Social. Click HERE for a map or directions. There is no cover and it's 21 and up.

So, yeah ... I'm quite excited about this and I hope you'll make it out. If the night does well then eventually we'll be bringing some very special surprise guests. Stay tuned, and we'll see you on Thursdays!

Funky Sleigh Bells & My Holiday Gigs

Yep, here's hoping you and yours has a fantastic holiday season. I'm really looking forward to 2010 ... there's so much in store right off the bat.

Here's some Xmas remix action to listen to as you toke on the yule log:

Bobby Helms - Jingle Bell Rock (Q-Burns Abstract Message Remix)  by  Q-Burns Abstract Message

I also wanted to let you know that I'm DJ'ing 3 times in the next week here in Orlando. I hope you can catch me at one of these fun post-holiday (+ one NYE) gigs:

Saturday, December 26 - I'm at The Social with Sleazy McQueen. It's a "Christmas Afterparty" with free well drinks before midnight, $5 cover. Click HERE for info.
Tuesday, December 29 - I'll be playing on the rooftop at SkySixty for Phat N'Jazzy. DJ BMF will be doing a James Brown Tribute set below at the Social. Click HERE for info.
Thursday, December 31 - It's my New Year's Eve Party at SkySixty. Celebrate the coming of 2010 under the stars, soundtracked by my special selection of funky tunes. $10 cover. Click HERE for info.

I now leave you with a couple of seasonal links to get you in the holiday spirit. First, here's an illuminating gallery of creepy mall Santas. And, secondly, watch as my hero of the decade Stephen Colbert educates us on the Christmas tradition of Krampus.

We'll see you in 2010!


Friday Night: Moonboot Session at SkySixty

We're tackling a full-on Moonboot Session on Friday night as Q-Burns Abstract Message unveils a 5 hour DJ set under the lunar light (well, sort of ... it'll be a 'waning crescent'). Tons of top tunes of various dancey varieties will be unleashed and you are encouraged to parade around the dancefloor in full-on Moonbooty regalia. Or just what you normally would wear on a fun Friday night out and about. We'll be thrilled to see you either way, and it's gonna be a blast.

This occurs Friday, December 11 at the new and revamped SkySixty located in downtown Orlando on the rooftop of The Social. Click HERE for a map or directions. There is no cover, and it's 21 and up.

We'll see you at SkySixty for the Moonboot Session!
