"MUSIC AND RHYTHM CONNECTS US ALL... A PLACE WHERE NO MATTER WHERE YOU COME FROM OR WHAT YOU DO, OR WHAT LANGUAGE YOU SPEAK, YOU ARE WELCOME. DANCING IS TRIBAL..." ~ DJ SPROUT / TAMMRA
I am SO stoked to have had the opportunity to close out the night at the Waverley Hotel in Cumberland, BC. Here is a wee little video of my first time out dj'ing in a year!
I absolutely adore this community. Since I first lived in the Comox Valley (2009-2010), and went to shows at the "Wave", and other events (that I had the honor of being a part of) such as The Big Time Out, the Big Day Up and many more... I have found the people (promoters and dancers alike) to always be super supportive and not a lot of "donkeys' lol, really truly though, my kind of peeps for sure. They are really all about the music!
Now that I live here again, it was awesome to see Vig, from Cumlerland Village Works, still at it! It's been great to reconnect with him. I believe that I did meet Ben back in 2009 but I can't remember how... well, anyways, he now has a company called Mt. Eliah (aka Long Shot Events) and one of his latest, big projects, is the Pachena Bay Festival. Him and Vig are responsible for many of the great shows that come to the Waverley.
Being a newbie, here in the Comox Valley, it's important that I get myself immersed into the community and thankfully, Ben & Vig started up an event that supports up and coming djs, as well as provides an opportunity for those of us that are new to the area, that want to introduce ourselves to the community.
I will be adding a second video here - of all of the djs from that night and their info. They were all amazing people and I definitely made some new, very good, friends. Plus, met some lovely peeps who stayed until the end for the love of music! I'm so grateful.
Also, I am presently trying to add my set but having difficulty publishing it. So in the meantime, you can find the dj set on SOUNDCLOUD HERE
