With Mother Nature giving us a taste of weather to come, it can get a little nippy outside. Time to come in and enjoy the wonderful sounds of talented saxophonist Trowzer Boa whose compositions and performances are familiar to those who have followed his career in RL. Trowzer explores the sounds of traditional jazz defining it with fresh Caribbean vibes and whatever else he throws in. Its funky, its different, a unique experience. Great to dance to, or simply sit back, close your eyes and follow his musical expressions.
DJ extraordinaire Yume Yoshikawa – where is she? Having had to explain her absence, we thought to put it in this post.. DJ Yume has had to take an extended leave from SL, she is well, just overloaded with “life” in the concrete jungle .. and hopes to come back as soon as she is able to. Meanwhile she sends all her friends and fans a greeting of love and thanks you all for your ongoing friendships. As soon as we know when she will be coming back we will be posting the news.. Keep watching.
In our mailbox this morning we found this wonderful set called Saskia, from Beloved Jewelry http://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Emerald%20Bay/167/184/303 Designer and owner Kimbra McMillan has given us the store’s blog. Please have a look, she is always coming up with new ideas. She is not only one of the best in SL she is consistent and has had years here, and a very loyal following.
DJ Henri can be found depending n the day (date) at venues associated with the Warehouse Speakeasy, or Isle Du Noir. She will be at Specter’s on September 20th. at noon 12: pm. Specter’s is on Isle Du Noir, on Fridays she is at the Voodoo Lounge, at 7 pm slt. Voodoo is also on Isle du Noir.
Isle Du Noirhttp://maps.secondlife.com/secondlife/Isle%20Du%20Noir/207/93/33 note there are so many activities that take place on Isle du Noir, we have given you the landing LM, from there you can see the various events posted, as well as pick up a notecard that has all the venues listed on it. Isle Du Noir is active and fun, there is a lot to discover and enjoy there at almost any time of day. Residents come from very different time zone. If you like adventure and mystery, they are full swing into a drama with their role play.. feel free to visit, just take care.. I met a mercenary this morning, or was she Police.. =^_^= (Liv Oblivion) whatever, she means business.
Due to the Queen’s passing (UK) there are many venues and sims that have cut back or slowed down since patrons/visitors are attending to LIFE outside of SL. If you are looking for places to explore and visit, consider visiting Isle Du Noir if you haven’t done so yet.
If you missed this bit of news, DJ Speelo is back, and you will find him at the Voodoo Lounge on Isle Du noir, Nats’ Jazz club in Detroit, and yes.. he is also at the Warehouse Speakeasy. How do you find him .. where and dates.. he has updated his profile, you will find information there, or please.. if you have the space, join his group. Check his picks # 1 through 5. His name if you do a search is Speelo Snook
There is a nip in the air, you can feel that soon the season will begin to change, summer will fade into fall. Already on my walk yesterday, I could see that leaves have begun to change, edges are that brilliant crimson that begins to embroider along the various shades of green still reaching out into the skies.
In SL we have our own intoxicating music in the guise of saxophonist Trowzer Boa. He will be making his weekly appearance at Nats Jazz Club a venue so well known for its night life. Nats features some of the best in SL, and Trow is a regular there, he plays Mondays 5 pm slt. one week, and Tuesdays 4 pm slt. the next.
Since he began playing in SL some 14/15 years ago he has had to cut back on his performances in SL due to his heavy work schedule in RL, often playing with a number of different bands in one week. Take advantage of his time in SL don’t miss an opportunity to hear him perform some of his own original music as well as his interpretive style on old classics.
We encourage you to join the performers groups, of if there is a venue you are fond of, and like to go to, join their group, in this way, you are able to keep abreast of where you favourite performer(s) will be playing. Many performers /artists will post their information in their profile as well, especially if they play at regular events and clubs.
I will give you examples of the notices you will get.. I missed an evening with DJ Henri last Friday that I so wish I could have attended. However real life does get in the way !!
When you belong to a group, you will get a notice like the ones I have shown you here. Most clubs post earlier in the day, to give you advance notice so you can plan.
With the passing of the Royal Monarch in the UK, I noted yesterday that many of the clubs/venues were low in attendance. This happens, world events do affect us in SL, why our patrons are from all over the world. SL is one of the places you can socialize with guests from different countries, many different time zones, that is why ALL times posted in SL use SL time.
Due to demands on our time at the moment, we will go to press less often, if you have news or events you would like posted, we require that you send information to us in the form of a note card, posters/pictures must all be Full Perm.
The places we usually post… all have groups and they are very good at informing their audience of the events taking place in their establishments,
