I am beyond thrilled to be a part of The Chvrch of John‘s “Reconnected Fridays” live-stream on thechvrchofjohn.com/live, this week. It is a solid line up of DJs and I get to play House Music! Most of you know I am a House Cat from the early 90s and this is what I truly love to throw down. So let’s go to Chvrch online this Friday and get on up from where ever you are hunkered down. Big love for Kris Harvey, Edmonton’s purveyor of the avant garde, music, art and culture in our City. Always moving forward.

Happy Pride!
Last minute announcement!
The Grindstone is open and we’re going to have two DJs playing some music back to back, but there won’t be a dance party here. But there still can be at your home! We’re going to live stream the jams and get you grooving whether you’re in your seats with us at The Grindstone, or letting loose at home.

Pride: A One Car Parade! is on the street today, and it seemed like a perfect way to lead into the night here.

50s – 60s – 70s – 80s – 90s!

It’s a time warp dance party free-for-all! With music through the ages from Foot Loose to Night at the Roxbury, The Beatles to The Darkness, from Rick James to MC Hammer. Relevant requests welcome.
