As I don’t write much on this blog like I used to, it still attracts visitors.
Thanx for the continued support and Happy Holidays.
Wishing my readers Happy Holidays.
Here’s two videos of Christmas in Central Florida. Both created by me.
Last Friday involved another happy hour DJ gig at Peacock Room, located in Orlando.
Check out the new hat.
In the past, acoustic acts used to perform on these nights. Usually, I would play for thirty to forty-five minutes. Then, the acoustic act would perform about the same amount of time. Not anymore. They didn’t suck or anything. It just became more and more evident people didn’t care for acoustic music on a Friday happy hour. At least, in Peacock Room they didn’t. I even heard some complaints about the acts myself. Friday is the last day of the work week for many people. They just got paid and want to let loose. Acoustic music is the last thing they want to hear.
After my set, I photographed.
Soon, the automobile and I cruised to Wally’s.
Costumed folks entered the building. They were raising money for charity.
After two beers at Wally’s, the automobile and I cruised to a friend’s Christmas party. There, a nine weeks-old puppy helped expose my sensitive side.
About a hour and a half later, I headed home.
Last Thursday, I DJed Christmas music during Sanford’s Unofficial Alive After Five. Why unofficial? During official monthly events, streets are closed down. Streets weren’t closed down this night. From what I heard, due to last December’s low attendance, city officials canceled this month’s event. Yet, local merchants decided hosting the night anyway.
My spot existed in front of Little Fish-Huge Pond, right along with Bad Santa and The Angry Elves, a band performing twisted versions of Christmas songs.
Here’s some photos.
Later on, with more band members, the group performed inside Little Fish-Huge Pond. Inside, bad words flew from Bad Santa’s mouth all night, even with kids present.
In the following pic, Debra Myers performs a wonderful version of “Santa Baby”. So wonderful, it aroused my candy cane.
Troy Garfield Goins sung a funny version of “Twelve Days of Christmas”.
The crew even performed Run-DMC’s “Christmas in Hollis”.
Sometimes, a live act beats having a DJ. Many DJs don’t interact with the crowd or at least, pay attention to them. With their enjoying themselves and involving audience members, Bad Santa and The Angry Elves prove themselves professional performers.
