The first week of February was such a hit (you can see my playlist and description here) that I decided to do the same structure for this year's Mardi Gras night on February 13th. I've dj'ed Mardi Gras at Tuesday Blues for the last 3 years and it's such a treat to play the rich and diverse music that comes out of New Orleans and Louisiana. This year I chose to only play black artists, often playing a couple tunes by the same artist and giving a little introduction so that the dancers could learn a little bit about the artist and history behind the songs. I received rave reviews from the format I used both weeks, with many people coming up to ask me the name of the artist or a track or just to thank me for sharing stories and playing such great tunes.

I don't consider myself much of a writer, but occasionally I like to share my thoughts on the dance scene and this is probably a better place to do it than Facebook.
