Blues In Bed

Sunday mornings have under gone some changes. The sensual DJ Aeryn Lovenkraft has become our primary DJ for Blues On The Green. She even has her own DJ group now, Angelic Blues Clues. She is always angelic in her lovely blue skin and is always giving lots of great information while streaming her vast collection of blues. She plays everything from Jazzy-blues to Rocky-blues. There is no better way to wake up on a Sunday morning.

We do have one problem with Sunday mornings. DJ Aeryn's human host has to work every other Sunday morning and she cannot log in till about the half-way point of the three-hour gig. The hostess fills in once in a while by streaming her blend of blues or hijacking Crighton's stream as he stacks it with blues for her. The other option we will experience began this morning. DJs Hy and Isobela pair up and bring us Blues and Coffee on the Green In Bed.

You heard that right, blues in bed. Since it is still early for them, they DJd from their bed in RL and we made it part of the gig.

DJ Hy & DJ Isobela are King & Queen of the blues

Everyone had a grand time with lots of coffee, special flavoring, beds and blues

Grey had fun jumping up and down on the DJs bed

Needed to hand out blindfold for those who saw Tycho's sleep-wear

It was an absolutely wonderful event and one that those in attendance would like to see continue. Perhaps we will see this again soon. Please let the owners know how much you enjoy all the gigs (conventional or just plain fun) at Savoy. They always want to know that the patrons are satisfied.

Happy Anniversary Savoy

On March 17, 2008, I stepped foot for the first time in The Savoy. I was in my tartan ball gown for Irish day and then attended the end of a gig put on by Crighton. He was heading directly to Savoy, which was not officially open, to do a jazz set. Oh the good ole days when Crighton would DJ three and four gigs back-to-back. It was this day that I met Jenda and Bill, the owners of Savoy and felt honored to be a part of something so wonderful. A couple weeks later a grand opening was held and I made sure I attended it.

The grand opening was a spectacular. All the DJs played, as well as some live talent. I wasn't there for the entire day, but I got enough of a taste to know The Savoy would be there for the long haul. About a month later, it was announced that The Savoy was moving. It didn't take long for the move to take place and soon the new open was greeted on Marco Island. With the fantastic club on the ground and a quaint skybox above, Savoy is diverse in its presentation.

One year ago, I was honored to not only attend the first anniversary celebration, but I was a hostess for some of the DJs. I have continued to be a hostess for Savoy (something I said I would never do). I love every moment spent there. the DJs are amazingly talented and the patrons (barring the infrequent griefer running about nekkid) are beyond compare. Last week Savoy celebrated its second anniversary. While I was unable to attend due to Passover, my heart was there celebrating the best jazz and blues club in Second Life.

If you have a chance to stop by, you will not be disappointed. Marco Island is well worth the time to roam about, relax and hang out. Congratulations Crighton Johin and The Savoy.
