One of Danville's last big events of the summer is happening this coming Thursday, August 26. I just confirmed today with the "Discover Danville Association" that I'll be setting up near the Cottage Jewel, which is near the intersection of Hartz and Prospect. There will be a concierge / info booth there.
I'm planning on playing a little bit of everything from the 50s up through the mid-70s, and I'd love to hear what your favorites are from that era! Come on by anytime between 4 pm and 9 pm, introduce yourself and make a request. If you bring a camera, your picture might just end up here on this blog!

Imagine having a jukebox like this at every special event you went to. Imagine that it was loaded with all your favorite music, and that for each type of event, it was loaded with just the right music that was appropriate for that occasion. Or, that your iPod had HUGE speakers, and was regularly updated in real time with fresh playlists.
Now imagine that instead of the bulky jukebox, there was a live DJ there, taking instant requests and pulling songs from every decade of recorded music, with the songs thumping out through big 15" sub-woofers. The colored lights you see are swirling away on the dance floor, rather than just on the jukebox.
So, hiring a DJ is sorta like having your own jukebox. And it's kind of like having a self-updating iPod. But better.
