The concept is quite simple: if you have an office Christmas party that night, please go — it won’t hurt as much as you think.
Then gather your favourite co-workers and bring them down to the Backstage Lounge to bring the party to a new level of fun. DJ Marc Fournier and I will serve up festive beats from all curves of the globe!
If you don’t have another party that night, join ours — we’ll share some of our favourite sounds of 2011.
And as usual, we’ll dig deep into our ever-expanding collections of Brazilian beats, Caribbean grooves, African rhythms, Arabian waves, and Balkan bangers to keep you moving and celebrate the end of the year in style!
Please note that the play next door will run late again this month. And because sound travels from the Backstage Lounge into the theatre, we can’t turn up the music until the performance is over. So we’ll get rolling at 10:45 pm. Next month, it’s back to our usual start time.
Cheers, best of the season to you, and see you on the 17th!
DJ Michael Laycock
