BLUES DJ!!!

Updated on December 26, 2015

My New Partners! **FIRE** & **LOBO**

I have a new partner..he is a Great conversation starter!! His name is "Fire" he is a spire dragon that sits on my shoulder..He is a blast! LOBO, My Wolf~The newest addition to my "family" He and FIRE cut up in local chat, like kids they sometimes need a "Time OUT!" They are a constant source of conversation!! Some times the ladies in the room "flirt" with him..my Second Life family "toss him food", like peppers, hot dogs etc... He can blow fire! He keeps my "Coffee hot" smiles..He's my buddy..He comes with several "Huds" for changing his appearance..and so he tends to "accessorize" very well with what ever I happen to be wearing that day!. Love My boy!!..smiles!! LOBO~Well he is rather the strong silent type in some ways... He is very low in running "scripts" keeps him low lag He has One script that allows him to speak in local chat using a "channel" like /8 <text> which in local will show his name...as if he was an avatar, and what he has to say via me... Very fun!.. Hell they both even bust on me all the time.. Someone once said they were goin to get me the book "sybil" b/c I am able to talk myself and both fire and lobo have their own "distinct personalities" lol...

Blues Dj

I am a Blues DJ.. This lens is for my favorite artist recommendations. I'm still what I call a "Student of the Blues"..always ever learning. There is No such thing as perfection. In my ever so humble opinion Life and Learning are Eternal.. To be perfect is to have reached the end, as there is no further you can go. But, if you remain ever learning & continue to learn til you leave this earth then you are Eternal! So I love learning about artists..Both Old Blues & New Blues artists. Stay tuned for some of my faves! It's Great to be on the RIGHT side of the DIRT! *Smiles*

Dj Larai Dreamcatcher

BLUES DJ

Mistress Of Mellow~DJ Larai! "Mistress of Mellow" Is a "brand" given to me a while back, It seems it not only describes the tunes I play, but also my disposition, Very Mellow! Try Not to get riled about much.

Keeps me Young! At least at Heart! I am a DJ in a virtual environment called Second Life.

I consider myself to be a Blues DJ, although I have been known to get get a whim for rock! Not as much as I used to but I don't discount it! *Grins* Love to wander through the classic rock cobweb vault. I do Loves My BLUES!

I have been told that i have a voice that is very easy on the ears, A "Slow southern drawl..kinda sultry. sexy: A Nighttime DJ" *Smiles* Chuckles.. didn't know there was a time for Easy on the ears..*Grins*

Recently, I was told something by one of the Club owners..Falcon Campese Of Back Alley Blues, while I've been told by people that I'm a Good DJ, even a Great DJ.

I've Never heard it put this way, he said in describing me that I'm "Classy..Unique & A Top Shelf DJ!" OK Wow!! Smiles Bout fell out of my chair chuckles.

One of the perks of being a DJ is all the very cool people that I have met over the years I have been a DJ for 4 + years. At Present I Spin at 6 Venues, All But one BLUES.

I meet people from all over the globe. Keeping in mind that there are real people behind the avatar., you tend to get involved with folks, have many friends and acquaintances.

One of the other perks of SL is being able to adopt family I have been told that I am a very warm giving individual, that I tend to care too much, Oh well! I'm Human!..Chuckles.

I put a lot of feeling into my sets. I do Very in depth Tribute sets. Makes it so much more fun to Learn about the artists being Played. Sometimes these "tributes" can be rather lengthy..a part history lesson & part story of the artist being featured.

I interject Live voice with "prerecorded" Voice overs. I only do these tributes once a week at the venues I work, a different tribute per venue and on different days. These tributes are usually promoted through second life events calender, face book & a really bitchin place called "second-friends" it's like the face book for second lifers.

They debut at Back Alley on Wednesday Mornings, they then get encored at the other venues, throughout the week. If you are Just looking for music with No talking, these sets are Probably not for you, In which case I would say find a radio, If you want to learn something about the blues & even an occasional classic rock artist, I welcome you.

I have been known to promote the Live entertainers that perform at the clubs I am currently working for. There are Many! For the venues I am currently working, I will do promotions for their sim, Be it just the club proper or the entire sim, vendors, amenities. etc.

Most recently I was asked to do a couple DJ Intro's. I've always looked at second life to be a medium for educating people in the arts, be they creating clothing or learning to build, learning scripting codes.

I consider myself to be an educator of sorts! I play Music for the Enjoyment & Education!

So..Diggin Life!! Great Tunes..Coffee..Family & Friends...It's Great to be on the Right Side of The DIRT!! *SMILES*

Recommended Artist Websites - Blues Artists

This is the place where you can find the websites of some of my favorite Blues Artists. You can check out their newest releases, sometimes grab a free download of an up coming album from some of them. Merchandise etc. Also, get an idea of what that artist is about and why I find them to be worthy of a Featured set when I DJ.

Blues - Blues Sub-genres

There are a Vast amount of Sub-Genres to the Blues, So I'm listing them here. Mostly because sometimes People don't realize just how many there are to Blues.

Most music is Based in blues, BUT! not all are Blues.."But Bluesy" I would imagine that even death metal or rage rock has some base blues influence!! I know that some of the "80's Hair Band" ballads have a nice Bump & Grind Blues BEAT to them *Chuckles!* I'm sure there are some that are missing..But I'm sure y'all get the message!!

      @Toy-Tester: Your quite welcome..smiles it's "takin a trip w/out leavin the farm" to be sure!! I do love the majority of the ppl i meet seems like i meet new ppl daily..from everywhere..all over the globe..lots of UK'rs..Lots of Euro..Very cool! One thing that amazed me and still does really..like it says in my other lens..i used it as a "simulator" of sorts learning my "trade" well ppl also learn a second or more language in there as well..i've seen it... Most are english speaking, But if not there are "translators" supplied by google..probably some other types as well. In the local chat, you'd see two the native language and the translation. I'm glad you enjoyed my lens, Maybe see you inside. I have another lens that is kind of about me..and how i came to be there..and abit more of a description of what all is available. *smiles*
